IMS International Music Summit - Destino

At Destino. Before the season starts for real, Ibiza gets down to business at industry get-together IMS.


Over the past few decades, dance music has flourished from a fringe cultural awakening to a booming global juggernaut - and there's an awful lot to talk about.

Since 2007, the dance music industry's leading players have congregated on Ibiza for the International Music Summit (IMS). Boring down into the nitty-gritty, we take this opportunity to discuss every aspect of the music business and evaluate the state of play.

IMS consists of three days of conferences, panels, networking and occasional partying, with plenty of laughs, heated debate and interesting insights. The annual business report has become the industry's leading data study, while extended interviews with legends such as Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Sven Väth, Seth Troxler, director David Lynch, and even rave hero Bradley Gunn Raver, have all caused stirs, as well as laughs, in their time.

Although many who attend IMS come by invitation, there are also many delegate badges available to purchase for those who wants to mingle with the industry's influential figures, learn about different facets of the business, hear directly from their favourite artists and generally be a part of an event which reflects on and celebrates dance music.

In 2023, the conference is back at Destino Ibiza Resort where it debuted last year, taking place from Wednesday 26 April to Friday 28 April. While there are some differences, as ever the 14th edition of IMS will cover a catalogue of hot topics.

These include a continued focus on health and wellbeing, diversity on the dancefloor, the politics of dancing, intersectionality, the prominence of social media, gender balance, the Great Annual Ibiza Debate and so much more.

See below for all the latest news on the summit.

Along with the meticulously crafted three-day summit, delegates can experience dynamic networking sessions, a handful of early Ibiza opening parties, the IMS Legends Dinner , wellness retreat ARETÉ and, of course, the holy grail, the IMS Grand Finale closing celebration in Dalt Vila.

Mark your calendars for Friday 28 April, when the show-stopping finale held at the unbelievably photogenic fortified old town declares Ibiza open for business.
