International Music Summit (IMS) has announced details of the 2018 finale of the summit and its annual Dalt Vila event in Ibiza Old Town.
IMS Ibiza is a three-day educational and thought leadership platform for the electronic music industry held annually in the dance music capital of the world and will see its its 11th anniversary taking place on May 23-25th 2018, placing special attention on health and wellness for mind and body, and alleged sexual harassment within the genre.
For Dalt Vila 2018 closing finale, IMS has curated the most unique line up that Ibiza will witness with 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.
“ 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. ”
– Ben Turner, IMS Co-founder

Strictly vinyl only DJ and dance music pioneer Sven Väth, with a career spanning more than 30 years will return for his third IMS Dalt Vila appearance, following the recent news that Cocoon will switch venues to Pacha after 18 years at Amnesia Ibiza. Also announced is seminal New York DJ Danny Tenaglia and respected Israeli DJ and firm fixture on the Ibizan calendar Guy Gerber.
