You know it’s nearly summer when the buzz starts about the International Music Summit, now in its 9th year on the island and this year being held at Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza from 25 to 27 May.
News that will especially appeal to the 80’s generation (such as myself) it’s just been announced that the Pet Shop Boys, namely Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, will make a rare public appearance talking to Pete Tong about their 30 year career and the stories behind their legendary remixes by artists such as David Morales, KLF and Shep Pettibone.
Also making their IMS debut will be Dieter Meier and Boris Blank also known as “Yello” who have been around for over 35 years and most famously had the smash hit record ‘Yeah’ which has become an iconic track for all sorts of multimedia.
Ben Turner, IMS Co-Founder and Curator, states: “Pet Shop Boys and Yello are both visionary acts that have taken electronic music worldwide with a pioneering, but populist approach. We’re proud to have Chris Lowe, Neil Tennant, Deiter Meier and Boris Blank all in attendance at IMS Ibiza this year. 2016 showcases our biggest list of artist speakers to date for IMS Ibiza, and in addition, our flagship event will also bring some amazing industry icons to introduce the perspective not often heard in our daily working lives.”
