This year, they’re going with “19 Topics for 2019,” touching on new technology, gender party, social conscience and mental health awareness
The international Music Summit in Ibiza has announced what they will be talking about for their 12th edition of the event, which is happening from May 22 to 24. This year, they’re going with “19 Topics for 2019,” touching on new technology, gender party, diversion and inclusion, social conscience and mental health awareness, and bringing positive changes to electronic music.
IMS Co-Founder Ben Turner explains the topics, saying, “Real issues once again dominate IMS. We will present the content very differently on the first day as we host two extended debates on Mental Health and Clubland in Crisis with multiple contributors from around the world. IMS strives to make change in the industry by its content and curation. The Keith Flint news has shaken our industry, almost a year on from the Avicii news. We hope this year to bring together all of the companies focusing on mental health including the Association for Electronic Music, to help find a way forward that can actually make a difference.”
