Emerging Ibiza Announce Experts, Talents and Wild Card Competition
Last month we announced Emerging Ibiza, the new platform for discovering new talent. The website will see a carefully pick a selection of Experts (all of whom are international DJs, label bosses and or established promoters) shine a light on who they think are the hottest new electronic music talents. These artists are then invited to play the Emerging Ibiza Discovery Festival from 27th May – 31st May 2014 with the most popular invited back to be a part of a season of Emerging Ibiza events in Ibiza from June to September.
We can now announce the full list of experts in no particular order, including Circus boss Yousef, ViVA Music label head Steve Lawler, Brazilian DJ, producer and D-Edge Club owner Renato Ratier, Ibiza regulars and Flying Circus chiefs Audio Fly, Detroit’s Visionquest members Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss, plus 8Bit boss Nick Curly, founder and artistic director of Ushuaia Yann Pissenem, established island promoter and DJ Chris Bones, and IMS co-founders Danny Whittle and Ben Turner.
