The Ibiza 2019 season kicks off next week when the International Music Summit (IMS) arrives on the island. Part conference, part party IMS has become the de-facto curtain raiser for the Ibiza season. In addition to a host of panels and keynote speeches from dance music insiders, artists and more (which will be broadcast live on the IMS Facebook page) we’ve rounded up four unmissable sets that you can watch online during IMS weekend…
Nicole Moudaber B2B SAMA live from Dalt Vila
One of the most exciting pairings from this year’s IMS show at Dalt Vila features Mood Records boss Nicole Moudaber alongside DJ SAMA, the Palestinian DJ, whose ground-breaking Boiler Room set has now clocked up more than 2m views. Moudaber, who grew up in post-war Lebanon, explained during an interview with our friends at EGG LDN how the young Palestinian DJ’s story resonated with her. We can’t wait to hear their respective sounds gel in Ibiza…
Anja Schneider Live From IMS Hard Rock Rooftop
Following the success of our IMS rooftop party with David Morales last year, DJ Mag returns to Ibiza with Anja Schneider. In 2017, the German DJ/producer stepped away from the iconic Mobilee label she founded in 2005 to start her Sous Music imprint. Schneider’s nine-track album, ‘So Me’ landed shortly after, which we crowned Album of the Month on its arrival. She takes over the Hard Rock Hotel’s rooftop on Wednesday 22nd May from 7pm. Expect sun-drenched tech grooves as the sun goes down…
Adam Beyer & Ida Engberg live from IMS Dalt Vila
Drumcode power-couple Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg bring their cinematic techno sound to Ibiza’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Swedish husband and wife duo tend to save their back to back DJ sets for special occasions so this one – direct from the 16th Century fort above Ibiza Town – is not to be missed.
Charlotte De Witte live from IMS Dalt Vila
The duty of closing out IMS’s Dalt Vila spectacular goes to techno star Charlotte De Witte. Since appearing on DJ Mag’s cover back in September 2017, the Belgium DJ – known for her immersive, hypnotic techno sets – has gone from strength to strength. Her set on the Tomorrowland main stage last summer (a rarity for a techno artist) has won her a whole new army of fans. Dalt Vila - watch out!
