Sydney’s Electronic Music Conference has unveiled the full program for its 2018 Global Cities After Dark forum.

This November is set to see Sydney’s EMC return for another year, bringing along with it the now-annual Global Cities After Dark forum. Intending to focus on supporting night time culture, the event brings together some of the top thinkers from the government and creative fields, along with representatives from areas such as urban planning, health, and hospitality.

Following an amazing debut in 2017, the event is set to return next month, with an array of exceptional speakers added to the lineup yesterday. With the likes of Bakehouse Studios’s Helen Marcou, MusicNSW’s Emily Collins, and the Australia Council for the Arts’ Morwenna Collett, attendees are truly in for an informative experience.

This year’s event is also set to include a number of intriguing presentations, including a keynote on The NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into Music (and what this means for the night time economy), presented by Member of the Legislative Council John Graham. 

Likewise, attendees will also see a number of specialists present the Expert Sessions, which aims to look at the solutions to challenges faced by the night time culture and economy.

Los Angeles’ Loren Granich will reflect on the time spent building the internationally renowned pansexual party palace ‘A Club Called Rhonda’, and London Boiler Room Programmer Amanda Maxwell will discuss the theme of collaboration and its necessity within nightlife

This year’s event is set to take place on Tuesday, November 13th at the University of Technology Sydney in Ultimo. Tickets, along with information about the 2018 edition’s full program, are available from the Global Cities After Dark website.
