With just three weeks to go until this year's Ibiza International Music Summit opens for business, things are really starting to heat up - if you'll excuse the pun.  

Organisers have now revealed the the full week of events, parties and openings - and by the looks of things the 2012 edition will be the biggest and best yet.

See the full programme of IMS events are proud to be hosting the Ibiza Skiddle Social on Wednesday 23rd May as part of the IMS festivities. We'll be taking over Grial in Ibiza Town in association with Whartone Records for dancing, drinking and a bit of networking. But mainly drinking. The line-up for the event includes The Japanese Popstars, Sonny Wharton, Pacha's Graham Sahara and Funkademia's Jamie Scahill. Find out more about the Ibiza Skiddle Social.

While in previous years the focus of the IMS has been on both the main event (the three-day music summit at the 5* Ibiza Gran Hotel) and the Friday night IMS Grand Finale Festival at Dalt Vila, last year saw the introduction of David Guetta also co-hosting Thursday night at D'alt Vila.

Mr Guetta returns - with friends in tow - to throw a huge open-air free party on the Thursday this year. But that's not all. There's now a full week of IMS events and parties spread across Pacha, Blu Marlin, Grial, Es Vive, and new venue Bubbles, as well as the legendary opening parties at Space and Ushuaia. 

The IMS Opening Party also takes place at Pacha with the first ever set from Chase & Status in the club. They will be followed by Porter Robinson - the hottest new name to emerge from the American EDM scene, fresh from his American college tour with Tiesto - and Kaz James back to back with Carl Kennedy.

The IMS Grand Finale Festival is still very much the jewel in the IMS crown, this year taking place on Friday 25th May. The line-up for this year's event features Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Pete Tong, Seth Troxler, DJ E.A.S.E, Azari & III (live) and Disclosure (live) - all set in the heart of Ibiza Old Town,  looking over the Balearic Sea with nothing but the stars above you.

Artists playing across the week include (a-z):
