Today we added a further 24 acts to the phase one line-up - making this year’s festival unparalleled in size and scope.
A total of 39 acts will share their sounds on CTEMF’s stages over 3 days from 5 – 7th February 2016.
Uniting world-renowned icons with fresh, new emerging acts from all corners of the South African scene, the 2016 line-up presents the same careful curation that has garnered CTEMF international recognition in previous years.
In typical CTEMF fashion, the line-up boasts a staggering variety of electronic music: hip hop, house, techno, electronica and all strains of bass music.
Highlights include: Detroit techno stalwart Rolando, French DJ/producer Chloé lauded for melding art and music, Berlin's Ralf Kollmann, head honcho of powerhouse imprint Mobilee. Critically acclaimed SA-raised Petite Noir returns to his home stage to perform while Aero Manyelo will administer a dose of Pretoria’s house sound.
A large contingent of Cape-based artists make sure that the festival remains true to its name and aims of representing the city’s vibrant and varied electronic music communities. Sibot & Toyota will present their deft amalgam of bass, beats and attitude as well as hip-hop quartet Driemanskap who have taken their self-crafted spaza sound around the globe.
Late in 2015 the festival announced plans for a new third stage, and this has been realized via the new “Club Stage”. This extensive line-up and expansion both indicate evolution of the festival and the growth of the industry at large.
