South Africa’s most prominent electronic music showcase and festival returns for its seventh annual celebration of local music and all things innovative and experimental.

After enjoying three amazing years at the Cape Town City Hall, the organisers have made some fresh changes including a new venue and date. The internationally acclaimed festival is now set to take place from 6 – 8 April 2018 at Atlantic Film Studios.

The new and minimalistic venue will host one of the most powerful CTEMF line-ups to date with nine internationals including Dutch disco boss Job Jobse, Swiss legend DEETRON and Hip Hop Selecta, Egyptian Lover. These foreign acts will take the stage alongside a massive list of local pioneers and innovators of the South African Music Scene over its signature three-day marathon next month.

Also returning to the CTEMF week agenda again is their expansive 3-day workshop programme taking place at various locations around Cape Town from 3rd – 5th April 2018. The workshops aim to uplift up-and-coming artists and will feature a variety industry talks and activities focused on personal branding, industry advice and of course, music production.

Above and beyond the enigmatic music festival and uplifting workshops, CTEMF will also be hosting their second annual Johannesburg Satellite event on 7 April 2018 as the brand continues their efforts to further its reach in celebration of local, underground electronic music.
