Psymedia was founded in 2010 as a simple blog reporting on the Cape Town music scene. Since then, it has gone through several transformations and new features throughout the years. Our primary coverage includes festivals in South Africa and abroad, festival reviews, interviews with artists, mixes from a wide variety of techno, progressive and psytrance artists, video content, articles and more.
To date, we have released thousands of unique pieces of content and are recognized as influences within our niche on a global level.
