EMC is looking huge already. The Electronic Music Conference, which has been happening each year in Sydney since 2012, is the place for the discussion of the Electronic Music industry. Think of it like TEDfest but for electronic music. It’s a place for industry makers, talent buyers and fans to come together to experience discussions from members of the industry, as well as see some sick shows as part of EMCPlay. This week, EMCPlay got even bigger.
Already confirmed have been acts like L D R U, Nicole Millar, POOLCLVB, Porsches, Running Touch, Strange Talk and Vanessa Elisha, but this second announcement almost doubles that stacked list of local goodness. Duo Set Mo, man-to-die-for Oscar Key Sung, indie rapper Ivan Ooze, Dom Dolla, Tyler Touché, Tear Council, cln, LOLO BX, Running Touch and Woodes will all be gracing Sydney’s city on December 1st and 2nd – absolutely huge. EMCPlay curator Dayna Young explained the importance of exhibiting up and coming talent at the Conference – “You only need to look at the overseas success of electronic acts such as Flume, Peking Duk and Alison Wonderland to see why Australia has a strong reputation internationally for developing incredible musical talent. With EMCPlay we’re providing a valuable opportunity for emerging Australian talent to potentially springboard the careers by connecting them directly with the world’s most influential labels, publishers, talent buyers, agents and managers.” This massive lineup compliments this year’s list of speakers, which includes Carl Cox, Gilles Peterson, Ta-ku, Tkay Maidza, The Meeting Tree, Nina Las Vegas and tonnes of industry heads just to name a few.
Venues will start getting announced over the coming weeks, but for now you can still buy second release tickets to the shows here. They’re on 25 bucks which is hella cheap, and that gets you access to every show across the Conference. Or, if you’re really serious about EMC, you can get a delegate access here, which gets you priority entry to all EMCPlay, conferences, networking sessions and welcome drinks. Make sure to peep the full lineup below, and jump on those tickets fast – no doubt this will sell out mega quick.
