South Africa: Cape Town Electronic Music Festival to Build On Previous Success

The Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, to be held from 12 to 17 February, 2013, at the V&A Waterfront will once again feature a series of development workshops and satellite events in a core three-day festival looking into the multi facets of South Africa's electronic music scene.

CTEM will reach back to the roots of how it all started, and discover what continues to inspire. Who has progressed and why and who are the names to watch. Which global artists shape trends in South Africa and, more importantly, who are the South African artists who are shaping trends globally.

In 2013 CTEMF welcomes its first International guest, none other than Richie Hawtin. As one of the initial role players in the global techno movement in early 1990s, he has continued to be a driving force both on and off stage, positioning him currently as number-two artist in Resident Advisor's 2012 DJ poll.

Locally, CTEMF will once again present a selection of the absolute cream of the crop of our electronic music scene, from scene originators and business leaders to the up-and-coming mavericks and industry revolutionaries.
