For the past three years I have had the pleasure of attending the CTEMF. It’s an event I attend to educate myself a little more about the current electronic music scene and to explore the different subgenres. The city hall acts as the perfect canvas for the colour and culture of this festival – century-old meets new, current and “now”.
Random festivals are popping up all over South Africa. Some make it, and some not so much. Up the Creek is one of those events that has been around for many years (20 odd?). So true the words on the website “No VIP nonsense. No pretence. No cliques.”, I believe this is exactly why it has been working for so long.
