Life’s a Rage party in KZN

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - NOKUTHULA NTULI

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.
