The Grand Finale of Ibiza's very own music business conference, the International Music Summit (IMS), is one of the most unique parties in the world. Taking place at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dalt Vila, high above Ibiza Town, the location is quite simply breathtaking and unlike any other in the electronic music world.
2012 saw Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Seth Troxler and more performing while 2013 Sven Väth, Solomun and Maya Jane Coles were the headliners. 2014 is looking bigger than ever with a mixture of DJ and live performances. The Thursday party takes a slightly more mainstream approach with BBC Radio 1 dance music heads Pete Tong and Annie Mac playing, with the former being one of the main guys behind the International Music Summit in itself. Steve Angello headlines whilst local boy and rising star Manu Gonzalez brings up the rear. Pretty Lights will be the aforementioned live performance.
The Friday show - the last night of IMS - takes a more cutting edge line musically, featuring some of the biggest names you'll see at the coolest parties. Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Eats Everything, George Fitzgerald... a high calibre of artist indeed. Live performances from Bob Moses and Hot Natured vocallist Anabel Englund complete the lineup with Marino Canal opening festivities ont he night, we suspect.
This is one party you will not want to miss, acting as the official/unofficial start of the season, you can roll from Dalt Vila down the hill towards Sankeys double header openings, Ushuaia, Space and DC10 openings - we challenge you to find a better weekend of music.
