Life’s a Rage party in KZN
BALLITO and uMhlanga are rocking as thousands of schoolleavers from across the country and beyond start arriving for the summer holiday and the 20th annual Rage festival, which begins tomorrow and runs until December 6.
Organised by G&G Productions and Samsung, the Rage has 17 international acts and 30 of South Africa’s top DJs scheduled.
The Sound Factory has been moved to Kings Park Stadium because of a lack of open space in Ballito caused by the many developments under way.
The opening party will be at Kings Park on Saturday night, featuring Congorock, Wankelmut and Trevor Guthrie.
Crush, a Ballito nightclub, is the flagship venue for the Rage and has been hosting schoolleavers’ parties since the first Rage. This year there will be a party at the venue daily.
Owner Blair Lock said it was an exciting time for Ballito, which was the home of the Rage.
“The other parties, including the Litchi Party, are also in Ballito. Only the Sound Factory has moved to Durban,” he said.
Lock said all the venues had beefed up security and were working closely with the local police.
