Classical music meets electronic in an underground Collingwood carpark
Every Friday night in November, Collingwood Underground Theatre becomes an intimate meeting point for two typically conflicting music genres. Play On welcomes some of the most exciting classical and electronic artists to join forces in an intimate performance space.
The event hopes to soften the often intimidating culture that surrounds classical music, and make sure it is enjoyable and accessible to all. Similar events have gone down a storm in New York and Berlin and opened the classical genre up to many.
The super influential Melbourne DJ Edd Fisher will open Play On, while the following three weeks will be hosted by an all-female line up of DJs.
