The International Music Summit Ibiza has announced more than 65 speakers for its 11th edition, taking place from May 23rd-25tth at the Hard Rock Hotel. Those include deadmau5, Seth Troxler, Nastia, Solomun, Black Coffee, Armin van Buuren and many others.
Canadian festival star deadmau5 will be beamed in live from his state-of-the-art studio in Canada for a revealing studio session. He'll be joined by mau5trap label COO Chris Johnson, who'll provide behind-the-scenes insight.
South African star Black Coffee will be joined by his management team for a panel on the challenges and successes of his meteoric career, along with Ushuaï/Hï Ibiza's Yann Pissenem. Trance superstar Armin van Buuren and Diynamic boss Solomun will also participate in similar panels.
As Burning Man has risen into the global conversation, so have many misconceptions about the event. Helping clear those up while speaking about the Nevada event's philosophies will be Dominique Debucquoy-Dodley, joined by Seth Troxler.
Paco Osuna and Bedouin will help lead the annual Great Ibiza Debate—an always insightful discussion about the future of the island. This year the spotlight is on Pacha, which will now host Cocoon. Pacha Group's Artistic Director Jessica Capaz joins, along with Solomun manager Daniel Schoeps.
And in keeping with this year's health and wellness theme, famed sober-raver Bradley Gunn will sit in the hotseat for the IMS Keynote Interview. Gunn has used raving as an outlet for his Asperger’s Syndrome, and been interviewed by the BBC.
Sexual harassment will also be addressed with a panel featuring The Guardian's Kate Hutchinson and DJ Mag Editor in Chief Carl Loben, with Carly Wilford of the SISTER Collective and representatives from SHESAID.SO.
Other topics this year include the blockchain, how to get your music heard on Pandora, emerging party destinations, drugs testing with The Loop's Fiona Measham, and many more.
