Applications are now open for EMCPlay 2016

Get your typing fingers ready – applications for 2016’s EMCPlay showcases are now open.

The 2016 showcases will take place at still-TBA inner city venues in Sydney on Wednesday November 30. Getting in is a big deal – artists will play in front of label bosses, industry big guns, A&R’s, festival bookers, and a heap of media types, meaning you can get a whole heap of exposure and make some very important connections. The likes of L D R U, Running Touch, and Nicole Millar are all EMCPlay alumni.

In previous years, the showcases have also been gatecrashed by some top notch artists: Skrillex and DJ Snake rocked up to the Onelove party at the Kings Cross Hotel in 2014, and Guy from Disclosure hopped on the decks at World Bar to play back-to-back with Motez in the same year.

This year’s EMC runs from a full week from Monday, November 28 to Friday, December 2. The full speaking line-up is yet to be announced, but EMC have locked in a keynote speech from Amsterdam’s Night Mayor Mirik Milan.

To apply for EMCPlay, Head to the EMC website. Applications close August 21.
