EMC LIVE showcase applications are now open!

Curated by triple j Unearthed Music Director Dave Ruby Howe and in partnership with Muzeek we’re proud to introduce a $500 bursary for each of the 16 EMC LIVE showcasing acts to help ease the financial pressure to deliver their best possible performance over two nights at The Lansdowne Hotel on November 13 & 14.

Jane Slingo, EMC’s Executive Producer, has managed a multitude of artists and knows the mechanics of a showcase from many perspectives. On the topic of the bursary Jane says;

Artists are at the core of events like EMC. The artists showcasing are essential to the positive experience of EMC’s delegates and EMC LIVE attendees, and discovering new artists is a significant part of why international bookers and industry influencers invest their time in attending events like EMC. This bursary eases the financial pressures for artists – it may contribute to flights or accommodation for a band, or an artist adding in a special production element that is integral to the delivery of their performance.

Muzeek, an artist and event booking platform, have long been a supporter of emerging talent and Co-founder Danny Fiorentini is excited to join forces with EMC once more; 

Muzeek is very excited to continue our long-term partnership and commitment to EMC. Year after year it continues to remain one of our favorite conferences to attend as music fans, so as partners we’re proud to be a part of it.

This is your chance to perform in front of a range of national and international bookers as well as influential figures from the global music community.


Back on curation duties, Dave Ruby Howe is excited to see what is in store for 2019;

I was personally very stoked with the applications that came through to perform at EMC in 2018, representing the brightest up and comers in the country who’re now cementing themselves on the scene. 2019 is set to be another great year as we know that Australia is such a creative hotbed when it comes to emerging artists from across the electronic spectrum. More than ever, it feels like there’s more great music being made but there’s an increasing competitiveness to have your music heard currently – with EMC we’ll get to give the best new dance and electronic musicians a chance to show their wares live and get a leg up to the next stage of their careers.

With previous showcases having featured the likes of Cosmo’s Midnight, Crooked Colours, Dom Dolla, Miss Blanks, Motez, Nicole Millar, Rainbow Chan, SAFIA, Set Mo, UV Boi and hundreds more, we can’t wait to once again shine a light on the future of Australian electronic music.


EMC LIVE applications are now open to any electronic music artist from Australia. EMC determines’ live’ as “any live performer on stage, solo or otherwise – and this includes DJs.” Applications close 11:59pm Sunday 15th of September, 2019. For the second year, EMC are working with tech partner Muzeek for the EMC LIVE application process. Muzeek offer a seamless online experience to manage live music events and artist bookings and will be the tech partner across all EMC festival events in 2019.
