Exploring the anxiety around the climate emergency and the power of an artists’ platform to reach the audience that matters.

Eco-Anxiety and Climate Emergency' looks at the anxiety around the climate emergency and the power of an artist's platform as a vehicle to reach the audience that matters - yours.

We've become familiar with terms like Web3, NFTs, and the metaverse, and some of us have even begun dabbling and building in this space. Has the technology for making music more equitable for artists finally arrived or are we still a long way off? We sit down with some of Australia's top minds at the intersection of music and Web3 to explore what is at our disposal now and the critical role artists and creativity play in realising a fair and equitable future.

Gen Z and the End of Creative Gatekeeping
3:00 pm - 3:40 pm
We hear from the experiences of brands, major labels, marketers and Gen Z creators and ask what the future of creativity looks like in a DIY culture.

Unapologetic. Disruptive. Born into technology. Creative slashies. Artivists. Gen Z is a generation that is fluid in their collaborations and knows no boundaries when it comes to creativity. Gatekeeping has forced Gen Z to take pathways to adapt and evolve more freely, in a changing landscape where activism, culture, creativity and technology intersect. For generations, gatekeepers have controlled the flow of information and creativity, dictating what is considered "good" and worthy of attention. That power is shifting. So what does the future of creativity look like in a DIY culture of independent creators? Gen Z and the End of Creative Gatekeeping we hear from the experiences of brands, major labels, marketers and Gen Z creators themselves on the status of gatekeeping and we ask what the future of creativity looks like in a DIY culture of independent creators.

6:10 pm - 7:00 pm
Powerhouse Theatre

Electronic music was an underground phenomenon with the origins of house birthed in Chicago following the Disco era in NY, and techno birthed in Detroit in response to the hard life of post-Industrial Detroit. These early scenes were defined by a DIY ethic and for providing places of inclusion and safety for marginalised groups such as people of colour and the queer community. Despite the progress over the almost four decades since, many similar issues both culturally and politically remain today. Closing EMC10 is ‘Never Forget The Underground’ in conversation with John ‘Jammin’ Collins (Underground Resistance). John ‘Jammin’ Collins’ of Underground Resistance has been a force locally in his hometown of Detroit and globally for more than three decades as a DJ, record producer, electronic music historian and curator of Exhibit 3000 - the USA’s only techno museum. Never Forget The Underground chronicles the experiences of John ‘Jammin Collins’ during his formative years, discussing the importance of underground culture, and how he sees the underground surviving the current tumultuous climate culturally, economically and politically.

Can Web3 De-Risk the Business of Promoting?
10:40 am - 11:10 am
The ‘Duck Drop’ Case Study
Session Category
Tech
10:40 am - 11:10 am
Theatrette

The business model for promoters has always been high risk. Huge financial investment with slim to no profit margins placed promoters in a precarious position even before Covid. Post pandemic, the stakes are even higher with a changed consumer mindset impacting presales and significant increases in logistics and production costs. All Access Anonymous (AAA) was founded on a need to de-risk the promotions game using the transparency of web3. One of AAA’s verified network participants, Livescape’s - It’s The Ship, recently tested the power of web3, with their very own NFT ‘Duck Drop.’ Their ‘Duck Drop’ provided a sample size of 200 fans with the power to help Livescape determine the It’s The Ship lineup, craft exclusive theme parties for Duck Drop holders, and sell cabins and tickets to family and friends in return for exclusive rewards, which can be redeemed on board It’s The Ship. It’s The Ship’s Duck Drop assists in validating AAA’s past year of research on deepening the artist/fan/promoter relationship through live events and the power of web3, and in turn diversifying and increasing revenue. AAA presents the Duck Drop case study at EMC, answering the question Can Web3 De-Risk the Business of Promoting?

No Guestlist!
11:30 am - 12:10 pm
No Guestlist! provides a ten-year retrospective of insights from promoters across Australia’s electronic music industry.

What distinguishes a "successful" promoter in this new world? Promoters are known as “tastemakers”.

No Guestlist! provides a ten-year retrospective of insights from promoters across Australia’s electronic music industry. Topics include skills development, community engagement, capacity building and response to global recovery efforts. What are the challenges? What about the future excites them?

We Are The Mainstream
12:30 pm - 1:15 pm
We Are The Mainstream looks at systemic change across workplace culture, nightlife spaces, governance and policies.

We Are The Mainstream addresses access, equity, representation and safety through the perspectives of First Nations peoples, the LGBTQI+ community, people with disability and culturally diverse people. Historically, these groups have been excluded and invisible from ‘mainstream’ culture as well as leadership roles. Whilst there is immense change afoot, there is still much work to be done to remove barriers and ensure access and safety for these communities. We Are The Mainstream looks at systemic change across workplace culture, nightlife spaces, governance and policies to create a better and safer music industry and society overall. These pioneers and professionals guide us to the future of creative work and play and highlight the role that everyone plays in creating a better world.

The DNA of a Green Festival
3:00 pm - 3:40 pm
The DNA of a Green Festival focuses on what is essential for music festivals to address the climate emergency - and to survive in the future.

The summer of 2019/2020 saw many festivals cancelled due to catastrophic bushfires and in 2022 we are now seeing our favourite festivals cancelling due to floods. The brutal reality of Australia’s climate emergency is impossible to ignore. Just as we must change the way we live, travel and work to reverse the impact of climate change, it is also critical that we act on the impact music events and festivals have on the environment. Many festivals and events are major commercial enterprises that result in significant carbon emissions, single use plastic and other garbage waste. This is a collective responsibility of audiences, industry, sponsors and influencers. The DNA of a Green Festival focuses on what is essential for music festivals to address the climate emergency - and to survive in the future. The speakers are leading new operational practices in sustainable event management and environmental initiatives.

For a medium that’s almost 120 years old, radio has been able to evolve with time and significant changes in technology. Today, Australia is one of the most advanced podcast markets in the world. This could indicate that the radio audience would diminish, but instead we’re witnessing profound changes in the radio sector and a growing appetite for radio from younger listeners. For the electronic and dance music industry, radio remains a powerful medium for a range of artists. It’s the home for beautifully curated mixes from emerging to seasoned DJs. It can give that first, meaningful break to a new artist. It provides the crossover for artists transitioning from mid tier to the mainstream.

In recent years, the rise of First Nations hip hop and hip hop artists is undeniable.
