Introducing the stages

Audiotorium Stage

The flagship CTEMF stage, the Audiotorium is situated in the heart of the historic City Hall.

Terrace Stage

The Terrace Stage adds a traditional festival element to CTEMF. Here, attendees can take in the sights and sounds of Cape Town’s CBD while enjoying some of the fine electronic music acts.

Mezzanine Floor

A slightly more intimate zone, the Mezzanine floor is at home in the city’s bustling heart. Expect an exhibition of the freshest artists currently expanding the electronic scene in SA.

Club Floor

Geared towards a focused dance experience, the Club Floor is an intimate, immersive space, which is tucked away and hidden.

Chill Floor

This is a place of calm, where you escape the madness. The Chill Floor offers attendees a place to take a seat, sip on a drink and enjoy a bite. Strike up a conversation as you recharge, enveloped by deep dubs and slow-rolling ambience.


In addition to the three-day music festival, CTEMF hosts a three-day series of workshops and showcases where luminaries from around the world cross paths with South Africa’s emerging talent. A wide-ranging programme takes place at various locations around Cape Town from 7-9 February 2017. Further details will be released soon.

CTEMF Connect JHB Festival

Many of the headliners will be playing in Johannesburg for the CTEMF Connect JHB Festival in collaboration with Truth nightclub over the same weekend on 10-11 February 2017.
