Written by Sacha Wall on June 5, 2018
A POWERFUL WEEK OF POSITIVITY, PROGRESS & CELEBRATION
IMS the inspirational, educational and motivational thought-leadership platform for the electronic music industry, last week delivered another insightful and inspiring schedule of powerful and at times emotional discussions on the most important issues facing the scene today, delivered by 120 artists and industry leaders.
Across 3 days IMS Ibiza welcomed 1,200 members of the global electronic music community from 48 different countries for a powerful week of reflection, positivity and progress.
IMS co-founder Pete Tong (BBC Radio 1, Broadcaster, UK) opened the 11th edition of the summit with an incredibly poignant opening tribute to Tim Bergling, otherwise known as superstar artist Avicii. Tong’s reflection on his life, his legacy and the impact of his tragic and untimely death started the summit on a somber but important note, reminding all of the importance of putting the spotlight “firmly back on our industry and the health of the DJ”, adding the powerful statement “we weren’t supposed to die chasing the dream.”
