IMS To Debut in China, Collab With Storm Festival 2015
In Collaboration With China’s Largest Electronic Festival Budweiser Storm Electronic Music Festival 2015
SAVE THE DATE: IMS, the world’s most influential and forward-thinking business platform for electronic music will set foot for the first time in China on Oct 2.
IMS CHINA adds to a total of four IMS summits to be held around influential electronic music cities in the world for electronic music (Ibiza, Los Angeles, Singapore and now Shanghai).
The Inaugural IMS China
Combining a business element to China’s best festival with international promotion and focus on China, IMS China will be held to coincide with Budweiser Storm Electronic Music Festival, China’s largest outdoor EDM festival.
IMS’ co-founder Ben Turner notes: “This is a great opportunity to explore a huge emerging market and to really help decipher the opportunity there. The event is as much to unite the industry there as it is for the rest of us to find ways of collaborating and understanding the country. Its just one aspect of our push and support of the Asia-Pacific region. To be clear, IMS Asia-Pacific is our overview of the entire region, and IMS China will shine a spotlight on one country with a gigantic opportunity for growth.”

Storm Festival, China’s largest outdoor EDM Festival
In 2013, Storm Festival drew 24,000 revellers, setting a benchmark for the Chinese EDM industry. Last year, it saw another attendance record with 35,000 people in two days. Storm 2014 was supported by 80 pre-parties across 21 cities in China, plus six warehouse-sized parties in Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, leading up to the two-day festival. The festival is organised by leading festival and events promoter A2live.
Shanghai, the megatropolis with a big club and festival culture, is China’s largest city with a population of 23-million people. It is also a popular stop for globetrotting superstar DJs, fuelling its thriving dance music scene. IMS China marks the summit’s second foray into Asia, following the 2014 IMS Asia-Pacific in Singapore.
IMS is presented and co-founded by UK dance music legend Pete Tong. It is an educational, inspirational and motivational thought leadership platform dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for electronic music, the artistry related to DJ-ing and all-related popular art forms, primarily through the presentation of summits and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of the genre to art and culture worldwide.
