International Music Summit (IMS), the premier platform for business, culture and education in global electronic music, today announce their collaboration with the leading female empowerment organisation in the music industry SHESAID.SO.As the summit continues to identify areas where positive transformation can occur, encouraging debate and proactively working towards change, this year’s event at the Hard Rock Hotel in Ibizaon May 22-24will be presented and co-curated by the shesaid.so organisation, with a 50% discount offered to all shesaid.so members who are attending the summit for the first time.
IMS and shesaid.so share the same key ideology and vision: creating an environment that supports collaboration, creativity and positive values. Key objectives of this partnership are to break down gender stereotypes whilst promoting and increasing the profile of women who are making an impact in the industry. The two organisations are uniting to make a joint statement of intent to help the electronic music industry examine inclusivity and encourage its movement to a more balanced sector, they will work together to strive towards gender parity at IMS Ibiza.
IMS co-founder Ben Turner states: “IMS has been on a journey of self-discovery in recent years and we feel ready to focus our event and its curation around striving for inclusivity in as many areas as possible. This is our third year working with Andreea and the shesaid.so organisation, and it really feels natural and unforced to share ideas and ideology with her team. It feels like our hearts and minds changed a few years ago but not enough action was being taken and IMS must lead by example. We can’t hide that IMS was created originally by six white males, but we can change everything else around us to promote the best in the industry from across professions. IMS is more open to collaborating than ever before and I personally hope we can encourage more women to speak, attend, perform and help shape the industry they love.”
shesaid.so founder Andreea Magdalina states: “We are excited to renew our partnership with IMS this year as a programming co-host. This gives us a greater opportunity to create more visibility for women and other marginalized communities in electronic music and beyond at one of the most forward-thinking music conferences in the business. Our relationship with Ben Turner and IMS exemplifies the shesaid.so collaborative ethos - to constructively work together to address the gender gap where necessary and propose solutions for the industry to adopt further. IMS has positioned itself at the forefront of innovation in electronic music and we are thrilled to augment the experience with our programming ideas.”
Focused on evolving and elevating the potential of both the individual and organisations to unlock success, IMS Ibiza 2019 will harness creativity and productivity in our work and daily lives, assembling industry leaders and artists from the international electronic music sector and beyond to inspire and be inspired.

THE IMS LEGENDS AWARD 2019 HONOURS JAVIER ANADÓN
FOUNDER OF THE ICONIC IBIZA INSTITUTION CAFÉ MAMBO, CELEBRATING ITS LANDMARK 25THANNIVERSARY
The annual International Music Summit (IMS) Legends Award is awarded annually to true pioneers of the dance music industry, recognising and paying tribute to the artists and industry trailblazers that have helped write dance music history and define its culture.
The 2019 IMS Legends Award honours Javier Anadón, Ibicencanbusinessman and creator and founder of Café Mambo, one of the islands most respected, influential and key electronic music venues celebrating its landmark 25thanniversary this year. Famed for its unrivalled iconic sunset location, Café Mambo has welcomed some of the world’s most renowned and recognisable artists and DJs as well as being a part of the annual BBC Radio 1 Ibiza Weekender since it began.
Café Mambo was created during the 90's house music heyday and, despite the challenge of being directly next door to international heavyweight Café Del Mar, the venue received instant recognition, was named ‘Bar of the Year’ by GQ and its following grew rapidly. DJs began to frequent the bar requesting to play on the decks and before long regular sets included the biggest names in dance music playing at the now celebrated sunset 'pre-party'.Throughout its reign, Café Mambo revellers have been treated to sets from IMS co-founder Pete Tong, Annie Mac, David Guetta, Erick Morillo,Eric Prydz, Sister Bliss, Smokin Jo, Swedish House Mafia, Sasha, NERVO, Paul Oakenfold, Roger Sanchez and many more. With a quarter of a century under its belt, this white isle institution is an invaluable part of Ibiza history whilst holding a reputation for championing new and ground-breaking talent.
Now with the help of his two sons-DJ's and producers Christian and Alan aptly known as 'The Mambo Brothers'-Javier remains at the helm of The Mambo Group which comprises restaurants, bars and hotels across the island.
Javier joins anesteemed group of previous recipients which include international artists Nile Rodgers, Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Sven Väth, Carl Coxand Underworld, plus Space Ibiza founder Pepé Rosello and Pacha Group founder Ricardo Urgell.
IMS Co-Founder Danny Whittle says “It’s an absolute pleasure for IMS to present Javier with the IMS Legends Award as Javier is without doubt one of the true legends and his unfaltering support for electronic music has been a pleasure to be part of. From my early days of decorating Café Mambo for Renaissance pre-parties, Javier always supported and helped up to hosting all seven Pacha pre-parties there through the 2000s, huge BBC Radio 1 events and so much more. This is one IMS Legends Award dinner no one should miss, it’s going to be one hell of a night with a huge group of people that have nothing but love for Javier, Caroline, Christian, Alan and the whole Mambo family.”
Javier Anadón says ‘I am extremely thankful for all the friends and family that have been around me over the years to make the dream of Café Mambo a reality and to create one of the most special places in the world. I am blessed to have met so many amazing people during this journey, and it's a real honour to receive this award from IMS as Café Mambo turns 25 years young. We have had so many fantastic moments over the years - I hope that we can celebrate all together for many more years to come!’
The celebratory banquet honouring this Ibiza icon will take place at the picture-perfect rural hotel Casa Maca on Wednesday May 22 at 8pm and will feature live performances from renowned Spanish guitarist Paco Fernández, who will bring his unique blend of traditional Mediterranean sounds infused with electronica and the incredible new talent Astrid Canales who will mesmerize guests with her mixture of traditional and classical sounds fused with cool pop and a stunning voice. Limited tickets are available to purchase now from the IMS website or entry is included with Delegate Plus and All Access badge tiers.
