EMCPlay programmer Dave Ruby Howe shares his thoughts on the 2016 lineup:
“This year’s EMCPLAY lineup is chockers with some of the best and brightest new names in Australian electronic music but it’s also exciting to be partnered up with some of the labels, agencies and collectives that help to breathe life into the local scene every week and weekend. Having the opportunity to connect the successful applicants for EMCPLAY 2016 with the industry is going to be super exciting – from big names capping off remarkable years to emerging, innovative artists on the brink of breaking it big.”
With more than 65 artists scheduled to perform at EMCPlay 2016, alongside a few extra special surprise guests – don’t miss one massive night of emerging electronic music with some of the country’s finest local crews and collectives.
