There's two ways to join the IMS 5 revolution; as a fan or as a industry professional. Both ways include individuals that are willing to have a great time and an amazing experience with no attitude. IMS 5 is for those that love dance music. For those that live for dance. For those that want to experience and mingle with some of today's top EDM professionals. That's what IMS 5 is all about.


Thanks to the gererosity of The City of Cathedral City; IMS 5 will be making ticket available for free. Here are the ticket structures:

  • Public standard public attendance ticket FREE.
  • Public adult VIP ticket (for VIP areas at event) $10.
  • Public under 18 VIP ticket (for separate VIP areas) $10.
  • Industry standard 3-day attendance tickets FREE.
  • Industry VIP tickets for special parties and events FREE (requires registration)


For the first time, IMS 5 is opening up the hotel option to all attendees to any hotel in the Cathedral City area. In the past, we were requiring industry professionals to stay at the official IMS host hotel. We've changed that this year.

Now, all industry professionals, attendees and fans can stay at any of the amazing hotels in Catheral City. We welcome you to review the list of recommended hotels we have for you. Please make sure to book your rooms early to be all set for IMS 5.



Parking is not an issue. As a matter of fact there is plenty of parking for this event. Thanks to The City of Cathedral City; we have free parking available to all IMS 5 attendees. This includes 3-level covered parking structure..

For the first time, IMS 5 is going to offer a special area (at the event) for Uber drop-off and pick-ups. Now you don't have to worry about parking and walking. Just use Uber and get dropped off/picked up extremely close to the event.

Dress Code

Many attendees from out of the area don't realize that it's still hot in October, in the Coachella Valley. It's important to remember that when packing those clothes for IMS 5

With that in mind, other than our Friday night VIP event; this is not a formal event. So feel free to wear tanks-n-tees. Friday night's VIP party we ask that all attendees dress appropriately because this is more of a formal event. The VIP party is not a public event and is a invitation-only party.

Food & Beverages

This is another first for IMS. This year we will have gourmet food trucks for the fans! The trucks will be inside the event grounds for you to take advantage of. Also surrounding the event area is fast food and other restaurants that are walking distance. So it's easy to walk over get your food and come right back.

Also new this year are two VIP lounge areas that include a full wet bar (in the adult VIP). This bar will be available all night at the main event. For the under-18 VIP area there will be a non-alcohol drink area with sodas and water.

Rules & Safety

The past Interfusion Music Summits have been amazing. The main reason is because we had a great fan base that enjoyed themselves with no issues. This year, we're expecting a much larger crowd which means that we're asking all to follow some very simple rules and guidelines:

  • Please leave your attitude at home.
  • Absolutey no alcohol can be brought into the event
  • The entire IMS 5 area is a no drug zone. This includes pot
  • Any individual causing a disturbance will be immediately removed from event.
  • Leave you knives, bats, guns, rocks and weapons at home. Please don't bring them.
