Now in its 11th year, IMS Ibiza (International Music Summit) is a three-day educational and thought leadership platform for the electronic music industry held annually in the dance music capital of the world. For its closing finale, IMS has curated a line up of heavyweights who will perform to a backdrop of the sun setting over the historic 2,500-year-old fort and UNESCO World Heritage Site, overlooking Ibiza Old Town and the Mediterranean Sea.
With both legendary and iconic artists sharing the stage with the most exciting emerging artists of today, the 2018 line up is a strong contender for the best in IMS Dalt Vila history. Headlining is Sven Väth, the strictly vinyl only DJ and dance music pioneer with a career spanning more than 30 years returns for his third IMS Dalt Vila appearance, following his recent shocking news that his long-running Cocoon Monday weekly will switch venues to Pacha after 18 years at Amnesia. Also announced is seminal New York DJ Danny Tenaglia and respected Israeli DJ and firm fixture on the Ibizan calendar Guy Gerber.
Ensuring the international pace is upheld is Korean artist Peggy Gou and Middle East influenced DJ duo Bedouin who in 2017 introduced Bedouin Presents Saga at HEART, one of the best new residencies in Ibiza last summer.
Adding further strength is Dubfire, an artist whose drive, talent and intuition have placed him within the top tier of electronic music artists in the world and Nastia, the break out Ukrainian artist who is rapidly rising through the international ranks.
Bringing the diverse flavours of the UK dance scene is Jackmaster, a pioneering DJ whose profile has rocketed in the last 5 years due to his truly open-minded and unique approach to performing, expertly delivering his own blend of house and techno.
IMS Dalt Vila will also feature an opening set from BURN Residency 2017 winner Furkan Kurt.
This spectacular line up celebrates the closing of IMS Ibiza and the opening of the summer season on the island in one of the most extraordinary locations in the world.
