Cape Town Electronic Music Festival Announces First Phase Line-Up for 2016


From 5th – 7th February 2016 the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival makes its return to Cape Town’s City Hall for its fifth annual edition.

Primed and ready for the 2016 edition, the festival today presented phase one of its line-up for 2016 including Goldie, Nightmares On Wax, Harri & Domenic and Boris Brejcha alongside some of South Africa’s trail blazers and hotly tipped new talents.

Long-serving icons like Vinny Da Vinci, DJ Kenzhero and DJ Superfly will share the stage with the mold-breakers like Okmalumkoolkat, DJ Lag and Rudeboys while the more established house and techno purveyors like Terrence Pearce and Andi Dill are billed alongside fresh talent like Adam De Smidt and Kyle Roussouw and Robin Would.

Renowned for its carefully curated line-ups, CTEMF brings together an assortment of local talent and imported luminaries to create a programme that aims to represent a cross section of South Africa’s vast, thriving electronic music industry in its global context.

The 2016 line-up will run the full gamut – from hip hop and disco to bass, house, techno and newer forms of electronic music unique to South Africa that now resonate in dance music’s capital cities such as gqom.

In addition to the main event, CTEMF will once again be hosting a three day workshop programme ahead of the core music festival. Free and open to all, the CTEMF workshops explore the many different facets of this rapidly growing industry from the inside out.
