Synthony No 3
A live orchestra will perform dance floor bangers by Disclosure, Eric Prydz, Flume, Calvin Harris, Wilkinson and more at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Dance and classical aren't music genres you'd usually find swirling around in the same basket — unless you have a particular bent for the orchestral 'Sandstorm' covers found in the depths of YouTube. Synthony — A Generation of Dance Music is here to prove that the disciplines go hand in hand.
Touring Australia since 2019, the event is returning to Melbourne from 6pm on Friday, February 17, 2023. It'll see a live orchestra join forces with a selection of DJs and onstage performers at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, all to play the biggest dance tracks of the last 30 years — think tunes by Disclosure, Eric Prydz, Flume, Calvin Harris, Wilkinson and more.
Expect the venue to take a few cues from the nightclub scene, with lights, lasers and mapped video all part of the experience — and a selection of dance floor bangers note-for-note.
Forming part of the Live at the Bowl summer event series, the lineup of talent includes the Synthony Orchestra; conductor Sarah-Grace Williams; and Rogue Traders' Natalie Bassingthwaighte, The Potbelleez' Ilan Kidron, Thandie Phoenix, Cassie McIvor, Greg Gould, Matty O, Mobin Master and host Aroha.
