WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CTEMF 2019

We’ve evolved since making our debut back in 2012. A few weeks ago, we were looking at the lineup from that year. AKA. Black Coffee. Floyd Lavine. Goldfish. Julian Gomes. Kid Fonque. In several short years, these artists went from high potential to world class. From locally respected to internationally renowned.

CTEMF provided a platform to showcase their talent at an important point in their careers. We’re proud of that and it made us reconsider our approach to the 8th edition of this festival. We’re making a return to the source with three big changes to ensure an event worth looking back on.

 



1. 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 us. As usual, our workshop programme will take place in the week leading up to the event.

2. BACK IN THE CITY
We’ve heard the calls to bring the festival back to the city. CTEMF 2019 will take place at the Cape Town Castle! We’re thrilled to be back within the city limits and make the event more accessible.

3. A LOCAL LINEUP
Past editions of CTEMF have featured acclaimed international headliners. This was important because it helped us get global recognition but we’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.

We look forward to seeing you at The Castle on the 9th of February, where CTEMF 2019 will pave the way for a new generation of local stars.
