This year EMC returns with a new venue, a line up of incredible speakers and an unmissable program.

EMC announces today its new home – the Frank Gehry designed, multi-award winning Dr Chau Chak Wing Building at UTS in Ultimo. Mind-blowing outside and inside, it has a state of the art auditorium and multiple breakout spaces including 360 engagement spaces, providing the perfect home for EMC’s new conference program format.

Our new home at UTS’ Dr Chau Chak Wing Building enables EMC to contain all conference program activities under the one roof, delivering an unprecedented experience for EMC attendees to take in the entire conference program whilst delivering ease to meet with new connections. This year, EMC will feature a stacked Keynote Theatre featuring front to back keynotes over two days, teamed with four breakout spaces focussing on different streams of content – Tech, an Artist and Manager’s Hub, Touring and Events and EMC Studio which houses EMC’s workshops and master classes focussed on craft development and music creation.

SASHA GILLES PETERSON GREG WILSON BLOND:ISH FLEXMAMI JOHN WATSON LEANNE de SOUZA CHARLOTTE LUCY CIJFFERS Last but certainly not least, EMC also welcomes DJ Magazine’s Charlotte Lucy Cijffers also appearing at EMC for the first time. Starting her career as a fashion journalist, Charlotte Lucy Cijffers moved to London from Brisbane, Australia, six years ago. She set-up popular online music magazine Chase The Compass on her arrival in 2011, expanding the brand to club-nights around the capital shortly after. Five years on, Chase The Compass now throws disco-themed parties in New York, Sydney, Dublin, London, Barcelona and beyond. In 2014, Charlotte took on the role of digital editor at DJ magazine's UK HQ and has since expanded her role to include the magazine's popular Ibiza print publication.

At a time when as an industry we are more future focussed than ever before with constant disruption, tech developments, big data and analytics, AI, VR, blockchain and more, EMC’s 2018 theme reflects the reality that despite our future focus, we are always looking back to the traditional business models of the past to learn from the shortfalls and errors, and to work towards a brighter future in the music business which offers a fairer playing field for all involved, be they music creators or music businesses. Musically – especially in electronic music which has a DNA embedded in sample-based culture – we are forever referencing past sounds and past genres – reworking, remixing and refurnishing nostalgic sounds of yesteryear in a contemporary take for today. EMC’s THE FUTURE OF YESTERDAY theme will also pay homage to some of the most golden years in electronic and dance music from the last three decades – 1988; 1998; 2008.
