International Music Summit (IMS) announces details of its annual Dalt Vila event in Ibiza Old Town, the finale of the summit and regarded by most as the official opening of the Ibiza summer season.
Welcoming in its 11th year, IMS Ibiza is a three-day think tank and educational platform for the electronic music industry, which is held annually in Ibiza.
This year, IMS has a unique line up that Ibiza will witness in 2018, with a breath-taking backdrop of the sun setting over its 2,500-year-old fort and UNESCO World Heritage Site, which overlooks Ibiza Old Town and the Mediterranean Sea.
The 2018 line up is one of the best in all of IMS Dalt Vila history, with Sven Väth, the strictly vinyl only DJ and dance music pioneer returning for his third IMS Dalt Vila appearance, following his recent announcement that his Cocoon Monday event will switch venues to Pacha after 18 years at Amnesia. Also on the headline bill is New York DJ Danny Tenaglia and respected Israeli DJ and firm fixture on the Ibizan calendar Guy Gerber.
Other sets that should not bw missed are from Paco Osuna, Andrea Oliva and IMS co-founder and industry icon Pete Tong; seasoned Ibizan legends with long and rich careers on and off the White Isle.
Other international artists include Korean artist Peggy Gou and Middle East influenced DJ duo Bedouin who in introduced one of the most exciting new residencies to come out of 2017, Bedouin Presents Saga at HEART.
Also one not to be missed is Dubfire, whose talent and intuition have placed him among the top electronic music artists in the world and Nastia, a Ukrainian artist who is rapidly rising through the international ranks and leaving a wave of fans in awe.
Jackmaster flys the flag for the UK music scene, a pioneering DJ whose open-minded and unique approach to performing own blend of house and techno as made him a firm favourite across Europe.
IMS Dalt Vila will also feature an opening set from BURN Residency 2017 winner Furkan Kurt.
There will be exclusive back-to-pack pairing announcements coming soon, however, this spectacular line up already celebrates the closing of IMS Ibiza and the opening of the summer season on the island in one of the most extraordinary ways possible.
IMS Co-founder Ben Turner states “IMS Dalt Vila is one of the most beautiful ways to celebrate another summer of electronic music in Ibiza and the end to another IMS summit. It’s reflective every year of the dominant sound and tempo of the island, and right now this continues to be the underground house and techno sound. The line-up reflects artists with some of the best residencies including Sven and Bedouin, but also iconic artists like Danny Tenaglia, and the hottest new names of today including Jackmaster, Nastia and Peggy Gou. Male; female; Spanish; international; young and old – it’s a good reflection of techno today.”
