Desti­na­tion free­dom

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - LIFE -

PLETT RAGE, the pre­mier stu­dent mu­sic and life­style fes­ti­val in the Western Cape and ar­guably the largest stu­dent fes­ti­val in the South­ern Hemi­sphere, is once again set to take place this year in the town of Plettenberg Bay from the 29th Novem­ber – 8th De­cem­ber 2013.

The road to in­de­pen­dence starts at Plett Rage “Desti­na­tion Free­dom” and with 10 days, 6 epic fes­ti­val venues, amaz­ing ac­ti­va­tions and ex­plo­sive head­line acts by South Africa’s top DJ’s and artists, Plett Rage will be the ic­ing on the cake of any Ma­tric­u­lants cal­en­dar and the ex­pe­ri­ence of a life-time!

The jour­ney that is Plett Rage, a rite of pas­sage where Ma­tric­u­lants get the op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate the end of an era with their friends, and as a commu- nity, gets big­ger and bet­ter each year!

Plett Rage 2013 will boast ex­cit­ing ac­ti­va­tions by spon­sors Adidas, Red Bull, SAB, Distell, Lip­ton and Sti­morol, amongst oth­ers, and fea­ture the likes of Roger Goode, Gold­fish, Haezer, Niskerone, Good­luck, Die Heuwels Fan­tasties, DJ Fresh, Jack Parow, Pas­cal & Pearce, Gareth Cliff, Mi Casa and many more. A fes­ti­val that never sleeps, Plett Rage fo­cuses not only on par­ty­ing but on life­style too – Cen­tral Beach sees a burst of ac­tiv­ity as stu­dents flock to soak up the sun­shine and get their heart rates pump­ing by par­tic­i­pat­ing in daily beach sports like soc­cer, 360 Ball and vol­ley­ball.

Safe trans­port. Check. Des­ig­nated driv­ers. Check. Ded­i­cated safety of­fi­cers. Check. An­thony Ja­cobs, Di­rec­tor for Plett Rage says, “Plett Rage has al­ways been about hav­ing fun in a re­spon­si­ble man­ner, and the safety and se­cu­rity of stu­dents is our num­ber one pri­or­ity. We work closely with Plettenberg Bay’s lo­cal coun­cil and law en­force­ment as well as lo­cal groups such as the Red Frogs, a vol­un­teer group who act as des­ig­nated driv­ers en­sur­ing stu­dents re­turn safely to their ac­com­mo­da­tion.”

Af­ter its suc­cess­ful launch last year, Plett Rage 2013 will see Rage 4 Good, a cam­paign which af­fords the op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to ‘give back’, make its sec­ond ap­pear­ance at the fes­ti­val.

Rage 4 Good, in part­ner­ship with the Bi­tou 10 Foun­da­tion, an NGO with a fo­cus on chang­ing the land­scape of lo­cal youth, will ex­tend on the ed­uca- tional legacy projects im­ple­mented last year. This year, Rage 4 Good will be host­ing a Christ­mas party, with the help of spon­sors and vol­un­teers, tar­get­ing chil­dren in the most crit­i­cal ed­u­ca­tional phase, Early Childhood De­vel­op­ment. Passes for Plett Rage 2013 can be pur­chased through the school am­bas­sador net­work, or di­rectly through Jen ( sales@ plet­trage. co. za). Free­dom Passes al­low ac­cess to ev­ery venue, with guar­an­teed ac­cess on ev­ery night for the du­ra­tion of the fes­ti­val.
