International Music Summit announces the return of IMS Ibiza in April 2022
The worlds leading electronic music conference will reinstate its face-to-face format next spring, making its long-overdue return to the infamous party island of Ibiza
Date published: 2nd Dec 2021
Returning to the renowned Balearic island for the first time in over two years, IMS Ibiza 2022, the thirteenth edition of the overseas conference, promises to be an event with a stark difference in comparison to its last outing back in 2019.
Opting to remove panel discussions for the first time ever along with online digital events, a format that allowed the brand to continue holding important debates and exchanges throughout the pandemic, IMS Ibiza 2022 will instead focus on delivering more one-to-one conversations with its notable guest speakers, allowing more free time for guests to mingle and meet new people.
Amongst some of the lofty names already confirmed to appear and give talks over the three-day event - running from Wednesday 27th - Friday 29th April 2022 - are the likes of BBC Radio DJ and journalist, Jaguar and global dance music ambassador and IMS co-founder, Pete Tong. More names have yet to be announced.

The aim of these individual keynote speeches and presentations is to offer a more in-depth overview of the various different sectors which make up the ever-popular electronic music industry - from business to culture and education - driving more collaboration between attendees and inspiring all those representing the ecosystem to find solutions to the challenges and opportunities the industry is currently facing.
As always, live dance music will play an integral role at next years summit. A programme of distinguished dance talents is expected to perform in venues exclusive to delegates attending the event - including the Destino Pacha Ibiza Resort, where IMS Ibiza will take place, and the IMS Dalt Vila, the site of the closing finale on Friday 29th April.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the health and mental wellbeing of guests next year, with daily yoga, meditation and reflection sessions on offer, as well as the events' new green policy. Those thinking of attending who choose to travel to IMS Ibiza by train and ferry can save money by obtaining an Eco Badge, brand new for 2022, whilst others can choose to pay an extra fee towards minimising their carbon emissions.
In the company of various other music brands and organisations, the likes of official event partner, Pioneer DJ and associates, She.Said.So, the Skiddle team will also play a part in supporting what's set to be a very busy summit next April. Expect to hear much more from us in the lead-up and throughout the duration of IMS Ibiza 2022.
