Brian Eno joins IMS Ibiza 2020 for a keynote interview with Pete Tong
IMS Ibiza 2020 ‘In Pursuit Of Purpose’ is taking place from May 20-22 in Ibiza.
International Music Summit (IMS), the leading voice for business, culture and education in electronic music, will unite the most influential global industry figures at the 13th edition of the summit, across three days of conversation, connection and celebration.
At the forefront of the debate will be iconic electronic musician, producer, visual artist, academic and leading pioneer in environmental activism Brian Eno, who will open IMS Ibiza with a keynote interview with IMS partner and legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong.
He will set the scene on the environmental crisis the world is facing and as a founding trustee of EarthPercent will introduce the project before other initiatives will be shared by other industry figures.
EarthPercent exists to encourage artists and music companies to commit a small percentage of their revenue to the best organisations addressing the climate emergency.
As an industry with a huge cultural influence, we should be taking a leading position in being conscientious and pro-active in supporting the best organisations taking on the challenges of climate change.
The aim of EarthPercent is to generate significant income via a rolling and continual mechanism, establishing a highly effective way for the music industry to be part of a solution.
“The music industry has always been a leader in movements for social change, and we can be proud of that. But if ever our efforts were needed, now is the time. This is The Big One and I am delighted to have this opportunity with IMS to speak with the global electronic music community at such a critical moment.” Brian Eno
