Celebrating their fifth year in operation, team IMS are very proud to be able to unveil the full details for this year’s IMS Grand Finale Festival – an event that’s now considered the opening party for the whole season.
Set in the heart of Ibiza Town and looking over the Balearic Sea, the very special UNESCO world heritage site in Dalt Vila is a place of true beauty, made even more special when you consider that this is the only time of the year the area is used for a contemporary music event.
And what an event it promises to be… Having previously showcased acts and DJ’s such as 2manydjs, Mark Ronson, Buraka Som Sistema and Hercules & Love Affair – as well as the annual host and IMS co-founder Pete Tong – this year’s line-up once again delivers on every level.
“It is a great honour that the IMS have invited me to celebrate my many years in the music industry, I have worked very hard in my life to strive to do the right thing and push my industry forward so to be acknowledged for this by such a great platform is truly wonderful. That said I am not over yet! There is plenty more to come!”
Joining Pete and Carl are two of the leading lights in modern dance music, heralded for pushing the genre forward and bringing back some much-needed soul and charisma to clubs in recent years. They also both hold mythical status on the island, with Loco Dice the former Circoloco hotshot turned Cocoon hero and Seth Troxler the new king of DC-10, alongside his good friend and sometime DJ-partner Jamie Jones. With both Dice and Seth being voted in the top 10 of Resident Advisor’s annual DJ pole for the past three years running (Seth was voted #2 and Loco Dice #4 in 2011), you are guaranteed to hear the newest and finest in cutting edge club music.
"IMS is proud to unveil this line-up – our finest to date and very reflective of Ibiza innovation. The IMS events at Dalt Vila really are the most prestigious outdoor events of the Ibiza season and its our little way of saying thanks to the Ibiza Consell / government and the island for all the inspiration it gives us every year.
The event now attracts partygoers from every corner of the world as the week around IMS becomes one of the busiest of the entire summer."
