The German-based promoter, a pioneer of global touring, and his new partners intend to start Ibiza Dreams in 2014.
There will be two festivals in Germany, at the HockenheimRing in Baden-Wurttemberg and Berlin, and others in Israel, Turkey, Switzerland and Romania.
The following year, it’s expected to roll out to a further 15 sites around the world.
“Having promoted and produced some of the biggest artists and events on the planet, I am excited to be joining forces with IBZ Entertainment to bring a world beating electronic music festival to Europe and beyond,” Avram said in a statement. “These events are not only an Ibiza Dream but also my dream which we are about to make a reality.”
Whittle has been a leader of the electronic and dance music scene for nearly two decades, spending 12 years as brand director for Pacha, booking and promoting shows and events for Pacha Ibiza and Pacha nightclubs around the world.
Netto is also a veteran of Pacha and has spent almost 20 years working in the electronic music scene.
He was responsible for setting up the management and touring department at Pacha and has produced shows on every continent.
In 2013, Whittle and Netto formed IBZ Entertainment, an Ibiza-based, international music entertainment company backed by Y Entertainment Group LLC.
Y Entertainment Group is the dedicated music entertainment vehicle of The Yucaipa Companies.
