Last week the CEOs, execs, media, DJs, wannabes and liggers that make up the dance music industry headed to the fifth annual IMS (International Music Summit) held at the Gran Hotel, Ibiza.
The fifth and arguably greatest year included panels from the man who invented disco (Nile Rogers), the man who pioneered synthesizers (Giorgio Moroder) and the man who just sold Cream for £18.9m (James Barton). Nile Rogers, who was interviewed by Pete Tong, told a capacity conference room about working with legends like Diana Ross, Grace Jones and most recently, Daft Punk. Speaking of the robot's new album Nile said "All I can say is that shit sounds amazing!"
Other panels featured DJs such as Carl Cox, Loco Dice and Luciano.
But it wasn't all panels, meetings and conferences - there were parties too. This was opening week for Sankeys, Space and right now, DC10. The main event though was the IMS Finale at Dalt Vila, in the heart of Ibiza's old town. The event, overlooking the whole of Ibiza, was held on Friday night with Seth Troxler and Disclosure plus a live set from Azari & III.
