Cape Town - The third edition of the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival is set to rock the Mother City this weekend with international and local acts.

The festival kicked off earlier this week with workshops, showcases and satellite events, but the main music festival will be kicking off at The Grand Parade today, Friday 7 to Sunday 9 February

We chatted to local Afro-house duo Crazy White Boy ahead of their performance tonight at the festival.

You can watch the video here.

The acts for the festival include deep house don Dixon (Germany), drum ‘n bass trio Noisia (Netherlands), hip hop pioneer DJ The Original Jazzy Jay (US), American house producer Justin Martin, UK bass hero Benga, a collaborative performance from local stars Jullian Gomes and Culoe De Song, one of South Africa’s most successful trance exports DJ/producer Protoculture, Black Coffee, Dirty Paraffin, Haezer, Portable (UK), J-Phlip (US) and Crazy White Boy.

Established in 2012 as a platform to celebrate the progress made by South Africa’s electronic music scene over the last fifteen years, The Cape Town Electronic Music Festival (CTEMF) is gaining recognition as one of the most relevant and forward-thinking events in South Africa’s calendar.

CTEMF’s objectives are simple:  annually presenting South Africa’s most interesting and innovative electronic artists to a local and international audience - thereby contributing to the growth of electronic music culture in a inclusive, positive and responsible way.
