Where in previous years the focus has been on both the main event (the three-day music summit at the 5* Ibiza Gran Hotel) and the Friday night IMS Grand Finale Festival at Dalt Vila, last year saw the introduction of David Guetta also co-hosting Thursday night at Dalt Vila and this year it’s no different.
The unstoppable global force that is Mr Guetta returns (with friends!) to throw a huge open-air free party on the Thursday again, but that’s not all, there’s now a full week of IMS events/parties spread across Pacha, Blue Marlin, Grial, Es Vive, and new venue Bubbles, as well as the legendary opening parties at Space and Ushuaia.
The IMS Opening Party also takes place at Pacha with the first ever set from Chase & Status in the club. They will be followed by Porter Robinson – the hottest new name to emerge from the American EDM scene, fresh from his American college tour with Tiesto. Plus expect a storming back2back set featuring Kaz James and Carl Kennedy.
With the IMS Grand Finale Festival still very much the jewel in the IMS crown (Friday 25th May), this year’s line-up features Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Pete Tong, Seth Troxler, DJ E.A.S.E, Azari & III (live) and Disclosure (live) – all set in the heart of Ibiza Old Town, with nothing but the stars above you, looking over the Balearic Sea.
Artists playing across the week include (a-z):
2manydjs – Azari & III (live) – Calvin Harris – Carl Cox – Carl Kennedy, Chase & Status – Cosmo – David Guetta – Detroit Grand Pubahs – DJ E.A.S.E – Diplo – Disclosure (live) – Doorly – Dubfire – Fatboy Slim – Francois K – Goldfish (live) – Groove Armada – Jim Rivers – Jon Rundell – Joy Orbison – Julio Bashmore – Kaz James, Loco Dice – Mark Knight – Martyn – Miike Snow – MINX – Nina Kravitz – Paul Oakenfold – Pete Tong – Porter Robinson – Radio Slave – Roger Sanchez – Sasha – Scarlette Etienne – Seth Troxler – Silicone Soul – Sister Bliss – Sonny Wharton – Steve Lawler – Wally Lopez + many more!
