Plett ready for Rage, throngs of matrics
PLETTENBERG Bay braces itself for thousands of school leavers about to descend on the coastal holiday town for what is said to be the biggest student festival of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
The annual Plett Rage, designed for school leavers to let their hair down and celebrate the end of high school, is set to attract at least 5 000 youngsters from November 30 to December 7.
Organisers have put together a variety of activities including performances by some of South Africa’s top music acts, parties and other entertainment
“It’s extremely difficult to name one highlight, seeing as the festival is such a monumental period in a matric’s life, it’s their celebration of coming of age and stepping into adulthood.
“We work day in and day out for more than a year making sure that we are able to deliver on the best and safest festival production possible,” Plett Rage spokesperson Ashley Brown said yesterday.
For the second time the festival will be hosted at an outdoor festival grounds dubbed CoCo Valley just outside the coastal holiday town.
This is where students will gather for evening entertainment while daytime activities will take place at Bikini Beach just off the town’s central beach.
Brown said one of the most exciting new aspects “is an art piece of blue petrel birds built by Mouth2Mouth from recycled plastics”.
“These birds are highly affected by pollution and our goal is to shed a light on issues we believe should be addressed by the future leaders of South Africa – the youth,” Brown said.
