Spanning over 60 discussions and sessions, more than 125 speakers will converge with thousands of delegates to scrutinize the current state of the electronic music industry in 2024 and outline the roadmap for the upcoming year.

Over the course of three days, IMS Ibiza will bring together trailblazers, innovators, visionaries, and disruptors from across the global electronic music landscape in one central location, offering avenues for delegates to delve into leading practices and innovations across fundamental pillars of music, technology, diversity & inclusion, education, and health & wellness.

The cornerstone session of the first day of the summit will spotlight “Reconstructing Our Community: Strategies for Reinstating Peace, Love, Unity & Respect.” This session will probe into methods to uphold and revitalize the core values of the industry in times of fracture, as witnessed amidst recent global events. Moderated by Georgia Taglietti, Culture & Campaigns Manager of the Association For Electronic Music, the discourse will feature contributions from artists DJ Pierre and Madame Ghandi, Ruth Daniel from In Place of War, prominent agent Maria May, and Author & Professor Timothy Morton. Professor Morton, a distinguished figure from Rice University, will kick off the session with a keynote address titled “Can you feel it? What I Learned About Belonging To Earth Since 1988.”

Serving as a platform for leadership and forward-thinking, IMS Ibiza will showcase keynote addresses from two revered figures in the music industry: “AlphaTheta & One Through Music: A Company’s Search For Meaning & Finding A Higher Purpose,” featuring an opening keynote address by General Manager EMEA Mark Grotefeld, alongside an exclusive 90-minute keynote speech by Michiel Beers, founder of Tomorrowland. Beers will offer insights into the festival’s evolution and the substantial impact of the Tomorrowland Foundation, which supports underprivileged children through the establishment of music + art schools.
