The Cape Town Electronic Music Festival
For over 15 years South Africa’s Electronic music scene has lived in the shadow of its counterpart, the greater global scene at large. That is until now. From a genuinely ‘underground’ scene devoid of industry and support, it has been slowly growing and has finally caught up with the rest of the world to the point of being taken seriously (even if still not entirely understood) by more mainstreamchannels.
The Cape Town Electronic Music Festival (CTEMF) is the celebration of a scene coming of age. It marks the point at which the Electronic Music Scene in South Africa has been recognized by itself and beyond as an industry that has reached the state of being self-sustainable.
The CTEMF is not about how many feet pass through the door, its not about booking the biggest acts to ensure radio play or getting as many ‘likes’ on facebook as possible. It’s about communicating the ethos, passion and musical creativity that has driven the scene from its early days to its current position as a global player in the world of electronic music.
The CTEMF will take place in Cape Town from 27 March – 01 April 2012.
The core Festival will be held at The V&A Waterfront from Friday 30 March – Sunday 01 April.
This will be preluded by a week of Workshops, Info-sessions, Showcases and Fringe Events from Tuesday 27 March 2012.
