Traxsource at IMS, Ibiza

Once a year the hard-working people of Dance music flock to the white isle to enjoy the sights and sounds of pre-season Ibiza as part of the International Music Summit, a conference to connect the global business partners of the electronic music industry and to finally meet those people you’ve known via email for the past five years.

Once again we’re treated to our favorite IMS highlights including Dalt Vila, the Legends Dinner and numerous pool parties (with free drinks) set against the backdrop of the über-cool Hard Rock Hotel on Playa d’en Bossa. The ever-popular highlight the ‘IMS Legends Dinner’ will take place on the Space Terrace and this year sees the accolade awarded to Pepe Rosello (Owner, Space Ibiza) – A fitting tribute for the ‘Best Club in the World’s final year as we know it.

IMS never fails to throw a good party and Friday evening belongs to the Dalt Vila event held in the UNESCO heritage site high above Ibiza town for a night of open-air fun with Francesca Lombardo, B Traits, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, Benjamin Damage and Tale of Us.

Another returning favorite this year will be the ‘Diversity in Dance Music’ panel, exploring the gender gap with Radio 1 favorite B Traits, Nicole Moudaber, Jackie Antas (Head of PR, Live Nation International, UK), José Woldring (CEO / Founder, The Media Nanny, Netherlands), Lucy Blair (Director of Sales & International Marketing, The Orchard, UK) and Maria May (Senior Agent, CAA, UK). The panel picks up where it left off in previous years, broaching the hot topic of gender equality in dance music and how to encourage more women into the genre.

This year we’re very pleased to be hitting the island with our marketing and A&R departments, bringing quite a Traxsource presence to the International Music Summit! Our very own Brian Tappert (Co-founder, Traxsource) will be offering up over 3 decades of industry insight and experience, appearing as one of this year’s IMS ‘Industry Icons’. He’ll be tackling the ‘Great Streaming Debate’ on Wednesday afternoon alongside representatives from Crowdmix, Anglo Digital Management, The District, MetaPop, Dubset Media Holdings and Mark Lawrence (AFEM) on a panel that will discuss the ever-changing electronic industry, the future, the current state of the streaming and digital landscape with these crucial voices of the industry.

The International Music Summit takes place from the 25-27th May 2016 at the Hard Rock Hotel, Ibiza.
