IMS Ibiza 2012. Speakers, music industry and deejays

Recently we told you about the new edition of the International Music Summit 2012 that takes place on May 23-25 at the Ibiza Gran Hotel. For another year, it offers a unique selection of lectures and conferences about the music business and annually attracts dozens of artists and leading executives in the electronic music industry. Also, as you know, daytime sessions will be complemented by first-class evening events in the historical enclave of Dalt Vila and in the mythical club Pacha Ibiza.

Now, the team behind the IMS Ibiza presents the day schedule and first participants of the talks, lectures, interviews and round tables. Spread across three days (Wed 23rd, Thu 24th, Fri 25th May), the IMS consists of some of the most forward-thinking and relevant discussion that you’ll ever experience.

This meeting offers an oportunity to tackle hugely important subjects for labels, managers, publishers and of course the artists. It offers you the opportunity to listen and be a part of vital conversations with the world’s leading figures across music, business and digital strategy.

It is a truly exciting occasion that is coordinated by some of the most experienced names in the business; and now in 2012 it announces its strongest line up of panels and guest speakers since its founding five years ago.
