Photo gallery | IMS Grand Finale through the years

We look through the archives of the unmissable one-off event at Dalt Vila.

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 2018, REPUBLISHED APRIL 2022

Oh yes! It's that time of year again, the time we have all been waiting for. Ibiza has reawakened. It all begins at what is easily one of the most picturesque parties on the planet: IMS Grand Finale.

If there's one date that should be in every clubber's diary, it is this one. Taking place once a year, the event celebrates the end of International Music Summit (IMS) with a fairytale party smack in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage site. Talk about dreamy.

The party also marks the official start of the season. This year it takes place on Friday 29 April.

See below for full line-up and tickets.
