EMC10 Festival 2022

For EMC’s10th Anniversary, we’re taking over Eora/Sydney and beyond with an electronic and dance music festival program from November 25 to December 15. EMC is partnering with promoters, collectives, agencies, labels and creative crews to present EMC10 Festival events, parties, showcases, club nights, pop ups, films and more.

Why be part of the EMC10 Festival Program?

The EMC10 Festival program is a collaboration between EMC and promoters, venues, dancers, DJs, artists, performers and industry. There’s a fresh energy in Eora/Sydney after battling through almost a decade of tough times. These past challenging years splintered our nightlife across different pockets of Eora/Sydney and beyond. 

Through EMC’s festival program, we aim to shine a big light on all the amazing things happening around the CBD, Inner West, Northern Beaches, Western Sydney and further south and north in Wollongong and Newcastle. 

We believe that by working together collectively in taking over Greater Sydney and beyond with a range of different events across the spectrum of styles of electronic and dance music, we can inspire thousands of people to get off the couch, get on the dancefloor and celebrate everything that’s great about music and summer in this great city of ours.
