International Music Summit finalizes 2018 international speakers programming

Ibiza’s International Music Summit (IMS) announced the final speaker details for its 11th annual conference, set to take place just as the White Isle’s season kicks off, May 23–25th. Now, in association with Pioneer DJ, IMS brings together over 93 impressive voices from around the world. Twenty-three global artists and industry heavy-weights will bring further insight to the summit, covering every aspect of the diverse and ever-changing electronic music landscape.

Programming for the 2018 event will tackle mental health in the music industry, the landscape of digital media consumption, technology, and much, much more. The house music legend Todd “The God” Terry will speak for the first time at IMS for a keynote interview about his life and career in dance music, including his early years in New York. Honey Dijon will present a discussion on sexual harassment in DJ culture which in an open and frank capacity, IMS hopes to use to confront the realities of this issue in the industry and what we can all do to tackle it.

A full list of the new speakers is listed below. Delegate badges can be purchased here.
