IMS Keynote 2013

Posted on April 2, 2013

IMS 2013 is fast looking like the biggest line up of speakers to date and, given some of the previous talent that has shared its wealth of knowledge with the masses who head to Ibiza for one of the most important conferences on the calendar. This year sees performances from Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Maya Jane Coles, Sven Vath and DJ Driis (Idris Elba) and while the cream of the talent pushing the scene forward takes centre stage at the closing party, some of the genius that inspired as generation shares some thoughts during the day. Nile Rodgers was a massive success at last years IMS and he returns to impart ore wisdom and some amazing stories this time around.

IMS 2012

Joining the legendary line up this year is Jean Michel Jarre, one of the earliest pioneers of synthesised music, who will take part in a keynote interview, offering an insight into one of the finest musical brains of a generation. On his forthcoming appearance, Jean Michel Jarre said, “I was excited to discover the IMS event in Ibiza and particularly the values it holds for a genre of music which I’ve been involved in from the early beginnings. I continue to push the genre forward in many ways, and I see my Keynote Interview at IMS as a way to continue to communicate my passions to a wider and younger audience – who appear to be today’s trailblazers for this genre, all united in one location.”

Ben Turner, IMS partner, commented on the inclusion of Jarre, “A lot of work has gone into landing Jean Michel Jarre. But we are hugely excited to have his attendance. I interviewed him in 1993 for the Melody Maker when electronic DJs like Slam had remixed his work. So it’s been amazing talking to him again about speaking at IMS. He is a true pioneer and his understanding of today’s scene is quite surprising. His understanding of the challenges facing the business is second to none, and his vision for change is also impressive and inspiring.” ON the return of Nile Rodgers, one of the high points of the IMS 2012 he also had this to say, “Nile set IMS alight last year but it felt like he didn’t get to finish his story. So welcome back – the man was an inspiration and so much has come from his involvement in IMS last year. He can come back every single year as far as IMS is concerned.”
