The three-day summit welcomes a massive first reveal of the IMS year with 20 iconic artist and 20 complementary industry leaders announced as speakers for IMS Ibiza at the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza.

IMS Ibiza presents also a rare and important interview from the Pet Shop BoysNeil Tennant and Chris Lowe for The Pete Tong Interview.

The duo will be celebrating a monumental 30 years of making music in 2016, making this interview spotlight a very special appearance for the entire electronic music community.

Another rare public appearance arrives at IMS Ibiza in the form of Swiss electro-pioneers Yello, comprised of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank.

Ben Turner, IMS Co-Founder and Curator, states: “Pet Shop Boys and Yello are both visionary acts that have taken electronic music worldwide with a pioneering, but populist approach. We’re proud to have Chris Lowe, Neil Tennant, Deiter Meier and Boris Blank all in attendance at IMS Ibiza this year. 2016 showcases our biggest list of artist speakers to date for IMS Ibiza, and in addition, our flagship event will also bring some amazing industry icons to introduce the perspective not often heard in our daily working lives.

Island icons, “King”  Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin – individually responsible for two incredible Space residencies, ‘Music is Revolution’ and ‘ENTER.’ respectively – will also be spotlighted in special interview sessions at IMS Ibiza, that will be unmissable.

Carl Cox will discuss his closing year at Space with club owner Pepe Roselló and his manager Lynn Cosgrave while Hawtin plans to share his insight on the developing realm of music technology.

House legend Erick Morillo returns to IMS Ibiza for a candid discussion with Pete Tong to offer insight from his extensive career and life experiences.

Specifically, Morillo will address the cyclical nature of the music scene and the powerful resurgence he’s now poised to command.

Detroit’s Seth Troxler and Haçienda legend Dave Haslam will host a very special listening session together following the news of Troxler’s purchasing of Haslam’s 4,500 strong record collection in November.

Guy Gerber, who popularized his Rumors party and established it as a staple of the Ibiza party calendar in 2015 is slated to bring valuable insight to IMS Ibiza. Also confirmed for IMS Ibiza are two acts also featured on the IMS Dalt Vila lineup: Italian duo Tale Of Us who will make their speaking debut at IMS and Dubfire ahead of the Ibiza debut of his live HYBRID show.

MOOD Records label boss and the ‘Queen of Dark Techno’ Nicole Moudaber joins the conversation at IMS Ibiza dually as both a worthy speaker and a performer at IMS Dalt Vila. Progressive Radio 1 broadcaster B.Traits will return after bringing her engaging ‘State of Mind’ panel to IMS Ibiza last year that tackled the difficult, but necessary subject of the relationship between dance music and drug use. Fellow BBC Radio 1 DJ and Dance Anthem’s presenter Danny Howard will also make his IMS debut in 2016.

Los Angeles-based Jason Bentley represents the American radio front as the Music Director for the leading Southern California station KCRW. Fellow Prominent promoter behind HARD Presents Gary Richards, also known through his performing alias Destructo, will also represent the West Side of the United States with his IMS debut in 2016.

But there are more surprises: in addition to 20 artists, 20 industry icons spanning across a wide variety of positions within the electronic music scene have been announced as speakers for IMS Ibiza. Ranging from agents and club owners to promoters and journalists, IMS Ibiza continues to pave the way for open conversation for the industry as a whole. Former Universal executive and CEO of the heavily tipped music social network Crowdmix Rob Wells will be speaking amidst plans for the platform’s forthcoming launch in May.

Crowdmix, one of the most buzzed about start-ups in the industry, aims to enable users to develop and enjoy rich social media experiences by joining crowds and communities of like-minded people using music as the link. Already, the platform has built up a team of 160 in its London office.

Kenny Gates, Co-Founder and CEO of one of the world’s leading independent music companies PIAS, will share his insights from over 30 years in the industry. Legendary owner and founder of Space Ibiza Pepe Rosello has been at the helm of the club since its inception in 1989, making him a qualified leader and pioneer of the island. Also speaking is founder of R&S Records Renaat VandepapeliereJacobi Calthorpe, a promoter of the Houskeeping party brand, comedian and internet star Dear Morni, or Austin Gebbia, a witty 20-year old who went viral with his satirical look at the underground music realm on his Instagram, Executive VP of Global A&R at Warner Music Group Bart Cools and many more.

News of this year’s speakers also arrives with the confirmation of regular IMS event details, following the unveiling of the iconic IMS Dalt Vila party that will take place on Friday 27th of May at the island’s historic UNESCO World Heritage site. Other events on the schedule include the IMS Business Report for 2016, IMS’ live showcase Back2Live and the prestigious Legends Dinnerwhich will be held on opening night with various networking sessions hosted by Ultra Records and Pioneer DJ. This year, the IMS Pioneer Award will return. Previously, the award has awarded to long-term manager of industry greats Frankie Knuckles and David Morales Judy Weinstein.  So, ready for Ibiza 2016?

IMS-Ibiza-Speakers-Announced-FINAL

Ibiza 2016: The DJ (& parties) Transfer Market is open!

The countdown for Ibiza 2016 has started and – as with every year- it’s time to talk about the Dj (& parties) transfer market in Ibiza.

This season there will also be lots of news and details of parties that have already been confirmed.

Let’s start with the confirmed events: every Tuesday night “King” Carl Cox will spend his last season at Space Ibiza.

It’s already possible to buy the tickets for the last chapter of an epic saga so don’t miss getting yours!

Don’t forget,  Pacha Ibiza has also confirmed they will be having a French trio of Dj’s: Martin Solveig will play every Wednesday night, David Guetta every Thursday night and Bob Sinclar will present “Paris by Night” every Saturday night.

Still Pacha   has already announced that this year’s party   season has been extended too.

In the next few days we should also receive news about “Flower Power” and some other interesting surprises.

Dc-10:  Following on from many exaggerated rumours (don’t forget what we wrote a few weeks ago – read here) there is  finally an UPDATE with the official opening party (red here).

Once again Space Ibiza has confirmed the elegant  “Glitterbox”  party will be held every Friday night.

From Space to Privilege: there will be many surprises here but one confirmed party is Supermartxè… the question being asked though is…will the party still be hosted on Friday night’s?

Also Sankeys has big news: the first one is a new – interesting project: ”Dance 88/89”. And now is available- as update – the complete line up of Dance 88/89 (click here)

 UPDATE: Here you have the link to  Sankeys complete program (Click here).

We would also imagine that Unusual Suspects and Carl Craig, after their brilliant winter residency, will be headliners this summer.

On to the Amnesia section:

UPDATE: Amnesia has announced the opening party (read here)!

Some websites are already selling tickets for Together every Tuesday night, so we must assume that this party will soon be confirmed.

Papa Sven Väth & Cocoon will return once again to Amnesia: Cocoon  has already  announced the opening party, and once again this year they will have some fantastic guest DJ’s.

Amnesia also announced “Cream” for season 2016 (read here)!

Another  confirmed party in Ibiza  is Music On.  

As we previously said, after four fantastic seasons, the team led by Ernesto Senatore, Roberto Postiglione & Luca Piccolo is ready to bring back Marco Carola & friends to the Island for another successful summer.

And finally Ushuaia and Hard Rock Hotel: In the next few weeks we’ll know the line ups, but we are sure that the Ants Colony and Children of the 80’s will have an important role to play!

Now it’s time to talk about the “Transfer Market of the dj’s and parties”.

There are many rumors (and we don’t waste our time on  rumors) but the most common questions are:

a) where will play Luciano in summer 2016? We for one, are very curious about it.

b) La Troya, one of the icons of the island, has announced that they will change from Sunday night and return to their original slot on a Wednesday, but where will this be?

c) Where will Defected in the House be hosted? Still at Amnesia?

d) Richie Hawtin won’t be bringing Enter. to Ibiza next season, but trust us Ibiza won’t be left without the Canadian artist.

e) Then “Chapter” Maceo Plex: he’s ready with big news, so stay tuned.

f) Guy Gerber: Rumors was one of the best parties in Ibiza 2015: where will it be hosted next season?

As you can see we’re still only in January and The DJ (& parties) Transfer Market is very active, so stay tuned, because Ibiza by night will update you as and when we hear any further news! And …don’t forget…as we previously said, there will  also be a BIG surprise…

So, prepare yourself for a great Ibiza 2016 …and to keep you going, here you have one of its unforgettable sunsets!

Richie Hawtin announces that won’t bring Enter. to Ibiza 2016!

Richie Hawtin announced that won’t bring Enter. to Ibiza 2016!

This is the text of the announcement. And this is a sad news.

I’m sure you all realize that my driving force comes from a unique mix of influences; music & creativity, inspiring technologies and the exciting challenge of pushing forward into the unknown.
In this continuing search it’s always been important for me to trust my instincts and have the freedom to follow any of the pathways that unfold before me, no matter how unexpected they seem.
As my main project of the last four years, ENTER. was founded to bring a new type of clubbing experience to Ibiza; an eclectic mix of music programming, creative production techniques and cohesive design aesthetics.
It is my belief that by combining these elements, a deeply immersive experience can be created. After fours year of ENTER.Ibiza events at Space Ibiza, I’m proud that we have successfully presented the island with a new level of detail & creativity.
However, it’s now time for ENTER. to TAKE THE NEXT STEP. in its development. Therefore ENTER. will not return to the island this season.
ENTER. will continue to explore site specific events around the world based upon our core principles: Music. Sake. Technology. Experience.
I’d like to thank Pepe Rosello, Juan Arenas and all at Space Ibiza for being our home for the last four seasons and giving us the opportunity to realize and launch the ENTER. concept. I wish everyone an amazing last season and continued success in all your future endeavours.
I’d also like to thank my team, the artists, creatives, islanders and industry for the support and belief in the ENTER.Experience since day one.
As we continue on this new exciting pathway of EXPLORATION and DISCOVERY, I look forward to seeing all of you around the world for the next exciting chapter!
-Rich“.
