Australian music producer What So Not (real name Christopher Emerson) will headline the return of next month’s Night Of Dance.

Heading to Wollongong’s Towradgi Beach Hotel, the DJ will be accompanied by special guests Billy Xane and Mincy.

The event comes after the success of the Day Of Dance – an Underground Car Park Party that starred STÜM and more. What So Not returns to Wollongong after headlining the coastal city’s premier music festival, Yours & Owls, in 2021 and follows his recent tours, Not Quite A World Tour and his Anomaly Australian Tour.

Early bird tickets are already exhausted, but punters can now access first-release tickets on Moshtix. The event goes down at 6:30 pm on Saturday, 29 June.

On Instagram, What So Not recently revealed that he’ll be announcing support acts, events, and pop-up shows every few days to kickstart an Australian Dance Revival.

You can DM the DJ “REVIVAL” to receive updates about the forthcoming events, including information on tickets and other details.

In a recent interview with Purple Sneakers, What So Not said about the inspirations behind his Anomaly tour, “I could just see about three years ago that it wasn't going to be about music on its own anymore, and that has kind of eventuated.”

He explained, “Even with TikTok, you can't just like put a song on that; you have to give it a story with a hook, with a delivery, while including incredible artistic, captivating visuals, or whatever it may be - it's no longer a standalone just with audio. So, basically, this is how I wanted to prepare myself for that and start to approach my shows as an all-encompassing visual and audio experience.”

What So Not’s search for support acts and kicking off an Australian Dance Revival also calls back to his recent comments, in which he said: “I have all these super-talented kids that send me stuff, and then they’re not getting shows, or they can't even work out how to make enough money to do it properly. They're all working jobs.

“So, I wanted to go on a mission to find out not who’s the most popular young person that's already got a bit of a platform, but who are the ones that don't have platforms yet?”
