Celebrate the global heritage and localised brilliance of electronic music
I can still feel the frequency of lights and bass beaming through my body, the sweat trembling off of me as the hours I dedicate to the dancefloor become an extension of my reality. There’s a moment, where City Hall let’s me sit upstairs and watch from an aerial view as the party breathed life into all its guests. Each day offered a mood fit for a particular personality. I absorbed each of them, as a continuum of the nonverbal attitude the festival represents. At CTEMF, no one needs to say what a good time they’re having, you can see it.
Many festivals serve the purpose of bringing electronic music to a given city or region, but few create as vital an exchange as the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival. Since it started in 2012, CTEMF has established an essential bridge between South Africa’s electronic scene and the global dance music community.
This year boasts a great line-up that amplifies the electronic circuit on a global scale. You can expect the likes of Âme, Ninjatune founders Coldcut, Stones Throw architect Peanut Butter Wolf, Heidi, Dave Clarke and Ryan Hemsworth. The list of homegrown talent includes Jazzuelle, Jullian Gomes, Kid Fonque, Leighton Moody and topped by Portable, AKA Bodycode, Haezer, Grimehouse and Youngsta Cpt.
This three-day music festival hosts a three-day series of workshops and showcases where luminaries from around the world cross paths with South Africa’s many up-and-coming talents.
This one’s for the lovers and creators.
