Now an integral part of advancing electronic music culture within the Asia Pacific region, Electronic Music Conference has established a strong foothold in Sydney over the past few years. Considered the annual destination for Australian and international creative professionals, curators and influencers, the week-long program includes a two-day conference program that covers all facets of electronic music business and culture.
Of course, not forgetting EMCPLAY either; a grand display of five nights of after dark parties, club nights, film screenings and pop-ups. Across the parties and conference, the likes of Sasha, Gilles Peterson, Blond:Ish, Late Nite Tuff Guy and Greg Wilson and more.
The Electronic Music Conference has not only disrupted and made an impact nationally in Australia, but it’s began to make waves beyond Australia, managing to culminate an impressive international following; attracting influencers and musicians from all over the globe. Many plan visits to Australia and specifically Sydney around the conference dates, leaving time to enjoy the early days of the Australian Summer season either side of EMC. The transport links in and around the Harbour city are a delight to use and a purchase of their OPAL card will allow you to use train, ferry or bus to get around. The OPAL card also extends beyond the city to the Blue Mountains, Southern Highlands, Central Coast and to other great locations.
The Electronic Music Conference is situated in the new location of the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building at UTS, Ultimo Road, Ultimo. A 5 Star Green rating, state of the art auditorium which will be home for EMC’s keynote theatre and everything else over the conference.
Sydney, often considered the London of the southern hemisphere, is a haven of incredible places to stay with unbeatable views of the city, harbour and of course, the glorious spectacle that is the Opera House. As the transport links in Sydney are so easy to use, there is not much pressure on staying so close to the EMC. If you’re looking for cheap and cheerful that offers up a great backpacking experience then look no further than Kanga House Backpackers or Siesta Inn Sydney.
Budget hotels are also available in their numbers, but our picks would be either the Grand Hotel or East Sydney Hotel. Of course, if budget and hostels are not for you and you are looking for something a little more fancy, The Rendevouz Hotel Sydney The Rocks and Four Seasons Hotel Sydney provide an affordable, but luxury stay in the city.

There’s almost no limit to what you can do in Sydney, you’ll be entertained for hours and it’ll be music to your ears to hear that it’s not all about splashing the cash, there really is a variety of things you can do to keep yourselves entertained, without breaking the bank! A walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge provides a simply stunning view of the Opera House and is something we recommend to all visiting tourists.
A day trip to the Blue Mountains is an affordable trip and one that’ll blow your mind.If food, specifically fish is your thing, then a trip to the Sydney Fish Market should be high up on your list, but not before you’ve entered the most famous attraction of the city.. The Sydney Opera House!
