The 6th edition of the Cape Town Electronic Music festival will take place from 7 – 12 of February 2017.
The festival takes place over a busy 6 day period in central Cape Town and offers attendees the most diverse program of electronic music available in the Mother City. CTEMF believes that the 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.
Established in 2012 as a platform for South Africa’s 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 Africa’s music festival calendar, where 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.
Following six years of refinement, CTEMF 2017 is bigger and better than ever. Expanding from three dancefloors to five, making sure that you’re on top of the world regardless of what you’re in the mood for. Every floor will have a distinct vibe, so expect unique sensations on each – this is the complete electronic music experience.
The flagship stage, the Audiotorium, is situated in the heart of the historic City Hall, befitting the legacy of CTEMF. It showcases some of the world’s best artists performing in a magnificent space. Prepare yourself for the ultimate audiovisual experience.
Take in the sights and sounds of Cape Town’s CBD while enjoying some of the finest electronic music acts in the world. The Terrace Stage adds a traditional festival element to CTEMF – it’s the perfect setting for cutting loose under the sun and stars.
A slightly more intimate zone, the Mezzanine floor is at home in the city’s bustling heart. Expect an exhibition of the freshest artists currently expanding the electronic scene in South Africa. This stage is for the hometown heroes and local crowd-pleasers.
Geared towards a focussed dance experience, the Club Floor is an intimate, immersive space, tucked away and hidden. It’s not another room; it’s another world. Smaller, yes, but highly explosive.
This is a place of calm, where you escape the madness. The Chill Floor is the perfect place to take a seat, sip on a drink and enjoy a bite. Strike up a conversation as you recharge, enveloped by deep dubs and slow-rolling ambience.
More stages mean more artists. You’ll hear sounds from Africa, Europe and North America. You’ll experience the dark, the tropical, the euphoric and the melodic.
