Reclaiming space in dance music: International Music Summit & why we’re going to Ibiza

shesaidso founder Andreea Magdalina in conversation with IMS Co-founder Ben Turner, hosted by Valerie Lee

Practical Parenting panel at IMS 2018, hosted by shesaidso

Ibiza is known as one of the most hedonistic islands in the world, where clubbing culture is not only thriving but it’s feeding its entire economy. For us, it not only makes sense but it’s absolutely imperative that we insert ourselves in these spaces in electronic music where sexism is at its peak. In our opinion, these are the exact type of environments where our voice is more crucial than ever.

As a hosting partner this year, it was important to us to open discussions that we think will have a positive impact on the industry in the long term. To be able to talk about sexual harassment, intersectionality, safer clubbing, politics, mental health and curating balanced lineups at International Music Summit is a privilege we hope to turn into positive action.
