The International Music Summit in Ibiza has become a call to arms for electronic music lovers around the world. With the 3-day summit hosting some of the very best parties and line-ups the island has seen, these spectacular events now represent the unofficial opening of the Ibiza season. So, it is with great pleasure the IMS can announce the line up for the Grande Finale 2013 at the infamous Dalt Vila on 24 May.
Headlining the Grand Finale will be the legendary Sven Väth, the artist whose Cocoon event laid the foundation for underground music in Ibiza. This will be your chance to witness a rare performance of Sven Väth outside of his Cocoon residency, and we’re sure it’s going to be one of the most memorable performances of the year.
On the list also shows the live act of Tensnake, whose live performances have delighted festival-goers around the world. Responsible for one of the biggest dance anthems of all time Coma Cat, a true Balearic record loved by the likes of The Guardian & NME and frequenting Radio 1 playlists. Joining Tensnake will be up and coming band Le Carousel, the new band project from acclaimed Belfast DJ/ Producer, Phil Kieran. Take this opportunity to remember last year’s edition.
We will enjoy also Maya Jane Coles. The past 18 months she has seen the meteoric rise, to one of the most highly sought after DJ and producers. Having performed in over 30 countries, with multiple awards, and millions of views across YouTube and Soundcloud, Maya is currently working on her debut album, which is set for release later this year.
Mixmag’s DJ of the year 2012, Solomun has been laying his deep grooves and impeccable song selection at venues around the globe. With an arsenal of killer tracks on the most celebrated labels of the underground scene, a Watergate compilation, plus his Diynamic label nights in Berlin, London, South America, Amsterdam as well as his highly regarded residency in Ibiza, not surprising that the best DJ last year has been signed to the Grand Finale.
Rounding off this already impressive line up is Scuba, whose album Personality was big, brash and one of 2012′s most talked about albums. His roots are in the London Dubstep scene, but he keeps one foot firmly in the Techno metropolis of Berlin. His DJ Kicks mix shows this is one DJ who cannot be pigeonholed… Bass heavy, stripped back and full of atmosphere.
Tickets are now available to the public, and having sold out rapidly last year, will be better than you act quickly. This is just the beginning.
