As the build up to IMS 10 Ibiza, taking place at Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza between May 24-26, continues, a further 20 speakers, from global industry leaders and influencers, has just been announced. Artists such as Art Department, B.Traits, Hot Since 82 and Seth Troxler join industry heavyweights from BBC Radio 1, Native Instruments, Positiva/ Virgin Records and Deezer as the three-day inspirational summit celebrates its first decade.

The annual motivational thought-leadership platform has enjoyed some very special moments throughout its Ibiza tenure, from the minute it first announced its intentions to the countless industry initiatives and positive changes it has been responsible for to its expansion to territories throughout the electronic dance world. The tenth edition of IMS boasts a carefully curated programme that includes inspiring talks, technology masterclasses, networking opportunities and cutting edge events. With a plethora of skilled experts, innovative business minds and some of the finest artists, both experience and emerging. It’s a fitting celebration of a Summit that has become one of the most important on the calendar.
