“These are strained and complicated times in electronic music—– not a landscape this industry has had to navigate before,” said IMS co-founder, Ben Turner. “Now, in our 15th edition, the key theme of trying to understand how to Rebuild Our Community is designed to be constructive, positive and impactful.

“Special thanks to the team of IMS advisors and experts for their input to this year’s program. We hope those in attendance will find something insightful and inspirational to take home with them along with new connections, new music and positive thoughts and actions for the future.”
