International Music Summit, Ibiza Grand Finale lineup announced

March 31st, 2011

2manydjs
DUBFIRE
PETE TONG
JASON BENTLEY

LIVE PERFORMANCES FROM:

HERCULES & LOVE AFFAIR
THE JAPANESE POPSTARS


LOCATION: Dalt Villa, UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ibiza
DATE: Friday 27th May 2011
EVENT TITLE: IMS GRAND FINALE FESTIVAL
TIMES: 18:00 – Midnight
PRICES: From €25 (IMS delegates have free entry)
CAPACITY: 2,500 people

The IMS Grand Finale Festival returns to the iconic Dalt Vila for a third year as they look to host their biggest event yet. In the heart of Ibiza Town and looking over the Balearic sea, the very special UNESCO world heritage site in Dalt Vila is without doubt one of the finest open-air locations in the world – and this is the only contemporary music event they allow to take place each year.

Building on last year’s unforgettable show that featured performances from Buraka Som Sistema, Mark Ronson, Sasha, Skream, David E Sugar and IMS co-founder Pete Tong, the IMS team have now confirmed the lineup for 2011 and once again it’s tantalizing prospect.

In the year that Pete Tong celebrates 20 years on BBC Radio 1, the co-founder of IMS will once again be spearheading the IMS celebrations and joined by none more exciting than the mighty 2manydjs – still regarded by many as the greatest DJs on the planet. Having re-written the rulebook of DJ mixes, pioneered the art of the mash-up remix, and conquered the world as their 4-piece band Soulwax, there’s little the two Belgian brothers haven’t achieved. They will be the headline act this year and it promises to be one hell of a show!

Not stopping there we also have Ibizan favourite – and huge techno star in his own right – Dubfire, who will be making his IMS debut. A man who originally touched down on the island in the early 90’s as one half of the Grammy award winning duo Deep Dish, but in more recent years has developed a solo career that has taken him to even dizzier heights. Without doubt he will be a huge draw to any techno fans that are in Ibiza that week. Rounding off the line-up we have IMS favourite Jason Bentley, the host of America’s most influential radio show (Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW) and the winner of the first ever IMS Pioneer award. A key name in the U.S. dance scene for many years, he is also the man behind countless movie soundtracks, including all three Matrix films, and is credited for orchestrating the partnership between Daft Punk and the recent Tron movie – he’s also an amazing DJ!

The headline live act on the night will be New York’s finest, Hercules & Love Affair, who recently released their ‘Blue Songs’ album to the delight of both the media and their ever-growing fan base. Managing to channel the spirit (and sounds) of the famous Paradise Garage, they combine both classic NYC disco attitude with modern house and electronic pop at it’s very best.

They will be joined on the bill by The Japanese Popstars, who will be performing their hybrid style of live electro to an Ibizan crowd that has already shown them a lot of love from their previous shows at Wonderland and Amnesia. Their Positiva/EMI album contains some incredible collaborations, expect special guests to be joining them on stage at IMS!

Supermoon/Full Moon rising on Ibiza 2011

March 20th, 2011

This saturday there was a party & bbq for two friends birthdays – it was a gorgeous sunny day in Ibiza and so afterwards we decided that since the supermoon would be around 7pm we’d all go to the beach and watch this once in every 20 years event.

To cap a fantastic day off the legend that is Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin was there watching it as well.
