As if we weren’t already excited enough for what is widely regarded as one of the hottest musical events of the season, today IMS Ibiza have announced further back-to-back pairings for IMS Dalt Vila, an al fresco party on top of the island’s historic UNESCO World Heritage Site. Headlined by German techno guru Sven Väth, this year’s line-up has had us chomping at the bit thanks to its expertly curated mix of electronic music legends and cutting edge talent. So wait until you see who’s going b2b with who!


As well as Papa Sven’s atmospheric and driving soundscapes, revellers will be treated to sets by Pete Tong b2b Bedouin, Paco Osuna b2b Andrea Oliva, Dubfire b2b Nastia, Jackmaster b2b Peggy Gou, Danny Tenaglia b2b Guy Gerber PLUS Burn Residency DJ Furkhan Kurt. If you haven’t got your tickets already, then NOW is the time to act as you most certainly will be left weeping into your breakfast/lunch/dinner if you miss out!

IMS Dalt Vila is set for May 25th this year and, as well as representing the grand finale of IMS Ibiza, is widely regarded as the opening shot for the new Ibiza season. Dancing to the fierce beats underneath the starry night sky while getting to see some of the world’s biggest names in electronic music play in this unique setting should be a bucket list tick for any Ibiza fiend worth their salt. Sven Väth, of course, needs no introduction; the strictly-vinyl-only DJ and dance music pioneer has a career spanning more than 30 years and is not only a White Isle, but also IMS Dalt Vila veteran.


Brooklyn-based, Middle East influenced production and DJ duo Bedouin make the perfect match for dance music royalty and IMS co-founder Pete Tong, who is known for his eclectic and far-reaching track selection. Representing Spain will be Paco Osuna back-to- back with Swiss Andrea Oliva, both seasoned Ibizan artists with long and rich histories on the island’s dancefloors. Adding further strength to the pairings is American-Iranian DJ Dubfire, one of the world’s leading figures in techno who joins Nastia, the break-out Ukrainian artist rapidly rising through the international ranks with her fearless and authentic approach. Other outstanding sets will come from the energetic pairing of Scotland’s Jackmaster and Korean artist Peggy Gou, and the heady pairing of seminal New York DJ Danny Tenaglia, and esteemed Israeli DJ Guy Gerber.

IMS Co-founder Ben Turner states, “Last year’s back-to- back marathon made for a unique atmosphere on the stage with seven DJs playing together at one point. IMS is all about the industry collaborating so we’ve decided to extend this positive approach to the line-up of IMS Dalt Vila again. There are some classic pairings, some we’ve seen before, others for the very first time such as Danny Tenaglia and Guy Gerber.”
