IMS Schedule 2015

The International Music Summit in Ibiza (IMS) is starting of today and with the full three-day schedule now announced, the annual industry summit is heading into its eight year, which is set to be their biggest and most insightful event yet.

IMS 2015 is packed with interesting and engaging debates, talks and interviews discussing the issues facing the dance music industry. Particular highlights include Soundcloud founder & CEO Alexander Ljung being interviewed by Pete Tong, who will also interview Ultra Records’ CEO Patrick Moxey on the imprint’s 20th anniversary and Def Mix CEO Judy Weinstein, who will talk alongside fellow legendary DJ David Morales for the first time in public since Frankie Knuckles passing away.

But there are also plenty of music events around to enjoy. The legendary Dalt Vila event returns, providing a unique opportunity to party at a UNESCO world heritage site with big names such as Luciano, Sven VäthSolomun, Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moon, Becky Tong, Thalab, Kidnap Kid, ZHU, MK and Rudimental. Take a look at the schedule to see which events you can’t miss out on. And if you’re not going to IMS you will realise why you should be there next year.
