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 mainstream channels.
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 first edition of CTEMF in 2012 boasted a 100% South African line up over 3 days, creating awareness and confidence within the local scene about its own achievements.
In 2013 CTEMF presented one international guest – techno pioneer Richie Hawtin. Globally recognized for his forward-thinking approach to making and playing electronic music, Richie Hawtin embodies relentless innovation and the development of the global electronic music movement.
The 2014 edition of CTEMF signaled the festival’s evolution from Cape Town’s electronic music festival into an internationally relevant music festival anchored in Cape Town. With its fundamental principles still rooted in the unified growth of the South African scene, 2014 saw the line-up at CTEMF transform to reflect its global relevance.
The CTEMF is not about how many feet pass through the door, it’s 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.
