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, Pete Tong, Seth Troxler and Azari & III perform so it was a big ask to build on that for this years party, but with Sven Väth, Solomun, Maya Jane Coles, Scuba, Tensnake and Le Carousel all now confirmed for 2013, it's safe to say this will be another quality party. Last years grand finale made it on to our Top 10 Moments of 2012 feature where we all but admitted to crying during the party, such was the level of awesomeness (that's a word, right?).
The theme for the IMS conference this year is 'Beyond the Boom Boom' as they seek to answer the questions surrounding 'EDM’s international expansion and how the business is spilling out of the confines of the dancefloor and into mainstream culture. It will also focus on where the industry goes in the future – after the goldrush'.
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.
