International Music Summit Ibiza announces 2017 edition!

IMS, International Music Summit, is one of the most influent festivals worldwide.

Next May will be celebrated in Ibiza  IMS 10th anniversary, and as usual it will be unmissable.

As all the years, IMS presents a program with many important guests, conferneces and events:  2017 edition will take place 24th till 26th May.

So, save the date,  because of the countdown for Ibiza 2017 has started.

The organizers said:”International Music Summit (IMS) is the three-day inspirational and educational platform held annually in the dance music capital Ibiza. A wide spectrum of electronic music industry professionals participate in a series of talks, interactive workshops, intimate networking opportunities, inspiring dinners and club events led by skilled experts, experienced business minds and talented artists.
 
IMS sets out to educate, inspire and encourage the sharing of new ideas and 2017 marks a decade of dynamic change in the sector and provides a theme for this year’s most engaging debates.
 
Founded by electronic music industry’s most respected individuals including Ben Turner, BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong MBE, and Ibiza heavyweights, Danny WhittleMark Netto and Simeon Friend, participants and curators alike, they all share a passion for electronic dance music and culture and are invested in shaping its future. The curators invite the most relevant, candid and thought-provoking speakers with participants from all around the world – providing a tangible opportunity to connect and learn.
 
IMS speakers over the decade have included David LynchQuincy JonesChuck DP.Diddy plus every major DJ on the planet. The founders of YouTubeInstagram and Twitter have all spoken. Nile Rodgersand Giorgio Moroder made the first Daft Punk collaboration announcement on the stage at IMS. Lynch’s recent music career was revealed at this event in Ibiza. It was the Ibiza delegates who supported IMS partner Ben Turner’s vision to take IMS a step further, to create the much-needed global trade body AFEM: Association for Electronic Music. The annual IMS Business Report also helped measure the global value of electronic music for delegates to use to win deals and, in many cases, sell companies. IMS founding partner Pioneer DJ have also been integral to the event’s success with continued products revealed at the event, and critical industry products like KUVO were conceived from discussions at the IMS Ibiza event.
 
IMS Ibiza takes place during the island’s opening season week, with a multitude of high profile events in iconic venues including PachaDC10, Amnesia and Ushuaia featuring the world’s biggest DJs. This year there is a return of the ‘Back2Live’ event – a special and unique showcase that celebrates the crossover between electronic and live music.  There is also the annual IMS Legends Dinner to honor those that have left a legacy on the culture and industry. Previous award winners include Nile RodgersFatboy Slim, Sven Vath, Carl Cox and Pepe Roselló, Founder of Space Ibiza. 
 
Thereis of course a fitting Grand Finale, offering the opportunity to dance in one of the most uniquelocations in the world – a UNESCO World Heritage SiteDalt Villa. Undoubtedly a rare and alternative opportunity to dance on and enjoy the 2500-year-old castle. Previous headliners have included Carl CoxSolomunSven VathRudimental and Pete Tong.

Stay tuned, because of Ibiza by night, as usual, will update you…and don’t forget to read our disclaimer

IBIZA BY NIGHT DOESN’T ASSUME  ANY RESPONSIBILITY IN CASE OF CHANGES OF DATES AND LINE UPS, SO CHECK BEFORE THE PARTIES OFFICIAL PAGES AND WEBSITES 

IMS Ibiza announce the return of ‘BACK2LIVE’, a salute to breakthroughs of the live electronic scene! Free entry at Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza!

As we already wrote, IMS 2016 will take place in Ibiza from next 25th of May till 27th of May.
The International Music Summit since many year is one of the most influent appointment on the white island, and also the 2016’s edition has in store many surprises, as wrote us your friends of Toga Media. Save the date, next 26th of May, starting at 20 till Midnight, at Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza will plays several excellent dj’s and the entry will be free!

Here you have the official poster, and the supporting Dj is the Italian Frank Storm.

With 3 weeks to go, International Music Summit continue to elevate the innovators of the electronic music industry with ‘Back2Live’, the returning showcase dedicated to breakthrough artists of the live stage. 

Taking place at the base camp of the conference at Hard Rock Hotel on 26th May, Stimming claims the top of the bill after the release of high-concept album ‘Alpe Lusia’. Recorded in isolation in an Alpine hut away from the world, then performed with the same level of immersion through a 4D sound system, this electronic explorer is known for his live intimacy. Experimentation in sound are the forte of the other selections too, with Sea Bed and Szjerdene also featuring – the former are in no way a house band, neither a strictly House act, and have crafted a string of hook-laden tunes with recent Annie Mac support. 

Bolstering the night with traditional setups still offering the same electronic exploration, come two UK bands – Delamere and Our Future Glory – who bring dance fusions as raucous as a Rock concert, resplendent in anthemic highs and synthesized swells. These high-energy, electronic ensembles promise to deliver a powerful show, with a stage presence that is proof to the ‘Back2Live’ statement. 

With free entry offered to all, other events on the schedule include the incredible Dalt Vila party at the island’s historic UNESCO World Heritage Site, IMS Business Report for 2016 and the prestigious Legends Dinner – with various networking sessions hosted by Ultra Records and Pioneer DJ. This year too the IMS Pioneer Award will make a return, the award previously awarded to long-term manager of industry greats Frankie Knuckles and David Morales Judy Weinstein

IMS partner Danny Whittle explains,:”IMS are very excited for this years Back2Live line up, with a real mix of electronica and indie guitar sounds. We really think it’s important to show the links and growth of more live elements within electronic music, and to also give a stage to upcoming new bands to showcase their talents to a very musically aware audience and music industry professionals”.  

Ready for a great IMS 2016?
