IMS Ibiza has just announced the full #IMSIbiza schedule! Beyond the stream of industry heavyweights involved, the topics for debate at this year’s event have also been carefully chosen to highlight the issues directly impacting on people working in the industry. The rumbling debate of festival billing politics is a noteworthy issue being brought to the forefront at this year’s event, as well as the ever-contentious Great IMS Ibiza Debate, discussing the ever-changing face of the island and it’s immense impact on the international dance music industry.
