The 12th annual San Francisco Electronic Music Festival (SFEMF)  consists of four evenings of stimulating performances and fixed media works by internationally recognized artists in the electronic music field.

This year's Festival spans four evenings from Thursday September 8th through Sunday September 11th.  The opening evening event will take place at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA) in the Phyllis Wattis Theater, and the Friday through Sunday concerts will take place at Brava Theater Center in San Francisco.  

Tickets for the opening night (Thursday September 8) will only be available at the door at SFMOMA or as part of the Full Festival Pass.

As is our custom, the festival will feature a range of electronic music composers, performers and sound art practioners including respected pioneers and emerging artists whose work spans the sonic spectra  from ambient to rhythmic, from atonal to melodic. As the only San Francisco music festival dedicated solely to electronic music, SFEMF brings together the varied practices of artists working with laptop generated sound, processed live acoustic instruments, amplified found objects, projected video, improvisation, and performance art.

You can buy individual concert tickets, or you can get a full festival pass, which will allow you entrance to all four events.

The full schedule is as follows.
