We’re at the end of May which can only mean one thing: the opening of the season in Ibiza. Kicking off proceedings is the International Music Summit, which boasts a formidable range of talent across the three day event. Speakers include electronic music’s most important players, from veteran DJs to an array of fresh faces, as well as a wealth of insiders and experts, who will give their unique insight into the industry.
Yet the treats don’t stop there. IMS will be capped off on May 27th with a blowout at Dalt Vila, the beautiful historic site set atop the cliffs of Ibiza Town. With a line-up as mouthwatering as the setting, the crowds flocking to the historic site this Friday will be able to feast on six hours of fine music. The night will be launched by Francesca Lombardo, the Italian-born DJ whose background in classical music gives her sets a unique edge. Benjamin Damage will follow, bringing his warm brand of techno which has led to his rising popularity in his adopted home of Berlin. Next up will be B.Traits, who’s fast becoming known as much for her DJ and producer skills as she is for her role in working towards resolving some of the industry’s most pressing issues. Techno maestro Nicole Moudaber will then take over, whose big beats and even bigger hair will lead us into the night as the sun sets over the marina. Fellow Berlin-based DJs Karm and Matteo of Tale of Us will be pumping out their atmospheric techno towards the end of the night, before Dubfire rounds off the evening with his HYBRID show – where ‘man meets machine’ to bring an experience like no other.
Whether you need a pick-me-up to get you through the week or whether you’re heading to Dalt Vila yourself (if you’re still tempted to do the latter, tickets are available here), we’ve picked our favourite mixes from the DJs taking to the stage this Friday. All we can say is, you’re welcome.
