Synthony Australia 2022
A 60-plus piece orchestra will perform 30 years of dance floor bangers on Cockatoo Island.

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 Sydney on Saturday, October 28 — and not just to any venue. It'll see a 60-plus piece orchestra join forces with a selection of DJs and live performers on Cockatoo Island, all to play the biggest dance tracks of the last 30 years.
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.
The lineup includes live performances from Ilan Kidron from The Potbelleez, Savage, Emily Williams, Cassie McIvor, Mobin Master and more — and The Metropolitan Orchestra, of course — with Madison Avenue's Andy Van on hosting duties.
