Electronic Music Conference (EMC) is excited to reveal the EMC Masterclass Program as part of ‘The Reboot’ one-day conference, Tuesday 5 April at the Powerhouse Museum. The EMC Masterclass Program has been designed with a dedicated focus on independent artists stunted from two years of disruptions. Some of Australia’s most innovative and inspiring artists – Nina Las Vegas, Human Movement and Setwun – will each host an intensive full-day of masterclasses located at The Lab inside the Powerhouse Museum. Each host will spend a full day with 25 participants in each group, experiencing three 90-minute sessions across each of these pillars: 

  1. Create – all about music-making 
  2. Perform – all about live performance development and DJing  
  3. Amplify – marketing, branding, promoting yourself and engaging with fans, brands and media, online and offline

Each masterclass host has been handpicked to take participants on a thorough end-to-end journey throughout the day, providing a valuable, intimate, thought-provoking and socially engaging opportunity to hone skills with experts in electronic and dance music. The program caters to a range of skill sets and experiences, including beginners.



Today EMC is also proud to announce its inaugural ‘EMC Next Generation Scholarship’ program, offering  6 months of intensive professional development to three chosen participants (one from each Masterclass at EMC’s The Reboot). 

Created to support emerging artists in electronic and dance music, the program’s multi-faceted approach provides one-on-one professional development sessions for each participant, working with industry experts across the below modules:

Module 1 – Artist Management

Mentor: Jane Slingo – Artist Manager and Director, EMC 

Module 2 – Music Production

Mentor: Antonia Gauci – Producer and Mix Engineer

Module 3 – Live Performance Development

Mentor: Joel Farland – Music Director, Farland Creative

Module 4 – Marketing and PR

Mentor: Sarah Hamilton – Regional Manager Australia and New Zealand, Ditto Music

Module 5 – DIY Releasing

Mentor: Monique Rothstein – Director, Positive Feedback

The program runs from May to October with a different module each month, featuring weekly mentor sessions.

In addition to the one-on-one professional development across the five modules, scholarship recipients also receive a photo and video content suite, with EMC providing a professional photo and video team for filming in the sixth month of the program, plus an ad budget to amplify the digital content created around each participant. 

The total value of the professional development per participant is $7,500. 

EMC’s Next Generation Scholarship is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.

Recipients will only be selected from among the Masterclass participants on April 5.
