EMC announces first keynote speaker for their 2016 instalment
EMC has today announced Amsterdam, Mirik Milan as its first keynote speaker for 2016, alongside the news that Purple Sneakers will be one of the media partners for their fifth year!
EMC 2016 is returning to Sydney’s The ivy Complex from November 28 – December 2 for a week of keynotes, interactive sessions, Q&As, panels, workshops, master classes, showcases, parties and more, celebrating electronic music culture in the Asia Pacific region.
They’re celebrating this with the announcement of Mirik Milan. Milan has been the Night Mayor of Amsterdam since 2012. The Night Mayor Foundation “is an independent, not for profit foundation dedicated to ensuring a dynamic nightlife in Amsterdam, and helping to build bridges between the business owners specific to nightlife in the city, and the city council, the mayor, residents and the public to create a pleasant, safe environment without damaging the night-life’s attractive and vibrant economy.”
His appearance is incredibly timely, considering Sydney’s much documented lockout laws, Milan‘s opening keynote at EMC 2016 aims to highlight the successes of Amsterdam’s nightlife policies and how other countries can implement similar solutions to cultivate a sophisticated and flourishing nightlife.
Stay tuned for the full EMC 2016 agenda to land soon, alongside a stacked EMCPlay lineup of 14 curated showcases across four official venues. As a presents partner we’ll also be whipping up some serious content alongside some surprises for you.
EMC 2016 Early Bird tickets now on sale. Conference ticket prices begin from $99. Whilst EMCPlay tickets are on sale from September 14.
