ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

ESTABLISHED IN 2012 AS A PLATFORM FOR SOUTH AFRICAʼS BURGEONING ELECTRONIC MUSIC CULTURE, THE CAPE TOWN ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL HAS GAINED INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR BEING ONE OF THE MOST RELEVANT AND FORWARD-THINKING EVENTS ON AFRICAʼS MUSIC FESTIVAL CALENDARS.

International pioneers and innovators share the stage with the bright lights of the South African scene, while the inner workings of this rapidly growing industry are unpacked and explored through a prestigious workshop program.

The festival takes place over a busy 6 day period across Cape Town city, and offers attendees the most diverse program of electronic music available in the Mother City. We believe the CTEMF crowd is one of the best in the world, and there are few other festivals that boast such diverse audiences alongside an unparalleled dancefloor vibe.

CTEMF CONNECT

CTEMF CONNECT IS THE NAME GIVEN TO OUR ANNUAL OUTREACH PROGRAM, FOCUSED ON SOCIO-ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT THROUGH OPPORTUNITIES IN ELECTRONIC MUSIC.

Every year we take on a small group of CTEMF Connect ambassadors – future stars of the South African music industry who undergo an extensive program of industry-focused workshops and training aimed at building the skills and insight required for a successful career in music.

Ambassadors are hand-picked from dozens of up-and-coming DJs and producers, and over the weeks leading up to the festival are given attention from industry experts in a wide range of fields:

    • Personal Branding & Marketing
    • Press Photography
    • Creating a Successful Press Kit
    • Social Media Best Practice
