IMS (International Music Summit) Ibiza will recognise the achievements and contributions of the elrow & The Arnau Family, who were recently announced as the recipient of the annual IMS Legends Award 2024 as part of this year’s Beatport Awards. 


The family will be presented the award by IMS co-founder and BBC Radio 1 broadcaster Pete Tong at the event celebrating excellence in electronic music production and DJ culture on Wednesday, 24 April at House of WOW from 8pm to 2am CET. 


From its beginnings as a small café over 140 years ago, the Arnau family empire has grown into the brand now known as elrow. Their parties are possibly known for their colourful brand of hedonism that includes a selection of music, costumes and performance art, bringing their electronic music across the globe, which includes their annual residency at Amnesia Ibiza.


Juan Arnau Jr. and Cruz Arnau, are the latest incarnation of six generations of The Arnau Family who have been part of the dance music scene in Spain with clubs and events like Florida135, Monegros Desert Festival, Row14 and elrow. 


The Arnau Family join a list of previous recipients of this award which include: Underworld, Nile Rodgers, Fatboy Slim, Sven Väth, Carl Cox, Space Ibiza founder Pepe Roselló, and Ricardo Urgell founder of Pacha Ibiza and the worldwide Pacha Group.


Juan Arnau Jr. and Cruz Arnau:

“Truly thank you from the entire Arnau family and also and above all from our grandmother Pilar, who at 95 years old is extremely excited to receive in our name and from her home, in the middle of the fragatine orchard, this recognition of so many years of passion that all of us have had for the art of making our clients dance. Of course, also thanks to all of them and all the collaborators who, together with the family, of which they are also a part, have helped achieve this award that we humbly receive.”


IMS Partner Ben Turner:

“The Arnau family and the elrow brand are true disruptors of global nightlife, not just Ibiza. A family legacy that has been promoting underground music and nightlife in Spain for generations, they are one of the true great success stories of our industry and consumer culture. IMS is delighted to honour them for their dedication, innovation and colourful approach to the dancefloor!”
