Back in 2012 CTEMF launched their festival with a specific mission in mind.
Their goal was to present an experience that reflects the rich electronic music culture in SA and to provide a platform for homegrown heroes to showcase their talent.
This was why they presented an all-local line-up in their first year.
Nearly a decade later they’ve evolved through venue, style and format but they’re returning to the source for the 8th edition where they will present an all-local line-up once again.
Join them in flying the flag at The Castle on the 9th of February – it’s a one-day celebration of electronic music in the heart of Cape Town.
Check out a bit more on all these changes below.
A One Day Affair
CTEMF 2019 will take place over one day (and night), with various stages that reflect our rich music culture. This also keeps the festival affordable and inclusive without compromising on the high standards you’ve come to expect from them. As usual, their workshop programme will take place in the week leading up to the event.
Back In The City
They also heard the calls to bring the festival back to the city. CTEMF 2019 will take place at the Cape Town Castle!
A Local Line-up
Past editions of CTEMF have featured acclaimed international headliners. This was important because it helped them achieve global recognition but they’re putting the spotlight back onto homegrown artists in 2019. International guests will feature at satellite events, but the core festival is a showcase of the finest artists in this country.
There will also be three stages JOOX, Red Bull and Budweiser.
