Emerging Ibiza is a brand new concept coming to the white isle in 2014. It’s ethos is to give exciting up and coming artists a platform to showcase their talents to the clubbing community. Emerging Ibiza will be creating innovative online and offline ways to discover new music during a five day break-thru festival from the 27th to the 31st May 2014, taking place at the heart of the worldwide dance music and clubbing scene, Ibiza. A selection of the most popular artists will then have the opportunity to return for residencies at iconic Ibiza venues throughout the season.
In a music scene now littered with countless artists and DJ’s due to technology being so easily accessible, it can be hard to find new talent that really impresses you. This is why Emerging Ibiza has called upon some of the most well loved and influential artists to use their music knowledge in order to curate the new music revolution Emerging Ibiza will be helping to uncover. Steve Lawler, Pete Tong, Audiogly, Chris Bones, Renato Ratier, Circus Recordings head Yousef as well as Danny Whittle and Ben Turner from IMS have all now been confirmed as the Emerging Ibiza experts.
The process which Emerging Ibiza will be working through involves each expert choosing a number of upcoming artists/DJ’s and selecting three tracks from each of them. These tracks will then be streamed to the public through the Emerging Ibiza website, Youtube and Spotify as well as being promoted on social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. All the selected Emerging Ibiza artists will be performing at the break-thru festival, to be concentrated down to 8 of the publics favourite. The 8 selected artists - determined by overall popularity through views, shares and likes of their performances and tracks will then return to Ibiza in the summer to play a month of residencies through June, July and August. Check out Luca from Audiofly and Chris Bones talking about some of their chosen artists in the videos below, and be sure to subscribe to the official Emerging Ibiza youtube channel for all the latest videos and artist announcements.
Emerging Ibiza is ready to be the voice which will change the way which we discover, consume and share new music, as well as providing an exciting experience at the Emerging Ibiza Break-Thru Festival.
