RAGE FESTIVAL 2015 LAUNCHES RAGE RIDES – ITS NEW TRANSPORT SOLUTION

Rage Rides

Rage Festival has launched its new transport solution – RAGE RIDES, adding to the festival’s already-robust offering. This in response to the demand from both Ragers and parents for a more integrated and seamless transport solution – and the need to make Rage Festival even safer for festival-goers (we don’t condone drinking and driving, it’s not cool).

RAGE RIDES is an incredible addition to the existing transport network that already covers Ballito, Umhlanga and Durban North, the home of Sound Factory – the heart of Rage.

RAGE RIDES is a pass to an comprehensive transport network that uses existing festival routes to get Ragers to and from Rage Festival venues and events for a standard flat rate. No bumming lifts off mates or scraping together their last R20 for a taxi ride back to Rage Village.

RAGE RIDES passes are available for Ballito and Umhlanga, the two host towns. Passes must be purchased before the festival online at http://nue.so/ve8ase, so that Ragers know their transport needs are covered from the minute they hit Durbs.

The benefits are:
· It’s cheaper: by paying a standard flat fee upfront, you don’t need to budget for additional transport costs to get to and from Rage Festival venues. The flat fee is also cheaper on average than taking individual transport or taxis.

· It’s safer: in addition to the stringent checks Rage festival has in place with shuttle operators, this year each and every RAGE RIDES shuttle will have its own dedicated security guard on board at all times. You can also party with peace of mind knowing you won’t have to drink and drive. Rage Festival strongly condemns drinking and driving.

· It’s reliable: We are increasing the number of transport managers this year to closely monitor shuttles’ trips and frequency to ensure on-time transport as much as possible.

· It’s easier: with a RAGE RIDES pass, you know your transport needs to and from Rage Festival venues are sorted. It’s one less thing to worry about, and one more reason to have a great time.

Rage Rides info
Shuttles to and from the Rage Festival venues and events start at 17h00 and run every 15-30 minutes until the end of the last event, usually 05h00.

The RAGE RIDES will cost as follows:

RAGE RIDES passes are available at http://nue.so/ve8ase.

Rage Festival organisers, G&G Productions, are always looking to improve year on year, and along with an epic DJ lineup and party schedule, will be announcing some awesome additions to #Rage2015 in the coming months. Ragers can stay connected to #Rage2015 on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to be the first to know.

Passport tiers and pricing can be found online at www.ragefestival.co.za.

Passports are not for sale to persons under the age of 18. Attendees need to be 18 at the start of Rage 2015 to be granted access to the festival and venues.

UNPRECEDENTED SALES FOR RAGE FESTIVAL 2015

Massive demand sees thousands of Passports sell out in minutes – sets new record!

Rage Festival 2015 Passports

Rage Festival 2015 Passports

There is no doubt that Rage Festival 2015 is the biggest youth music and lifestyle festival in the country. In just seven minutes after going on sale on Sunday 1 March at 12h00 all 1,300 Early Bird Passports sold out.

It didn’t stop there. Huge demand throughout the day meant that by 12h30 Rage Festival had sold out of Phase 2 Black and Platinum Passports (300 Black and 1000 Platinum) – the most exclusive and in-demand of all Passports. By 16h00 that same afternoon, all Black and Platinum had completely sold out (750 Black and 1850 Platinum). A further 1,500 Regular Passports were also sold.

This incredible achievement has set a record for the event, says Rage Festival owner and producer G&G Productions. “Still nine months away, we have more than doubled the number of Passports we have sold this year over the same period in 2014,” says Will McIntyre, Rage Festival Director at G&G Productions. “Passports sell out even before we announce any of our artists or line-up,” adds Will, showing the demand for the annual event.

Rage Festival has come a long way since its inception in 2005 with only 500 matrics. Last year the festival celebrated its 10-year anniversary and hosted over 30,000 attendees over nine days and nights, with 19 international and over 40 local DJ’s at more than 70 events and venues throughout Ballito, Umhlanga and Durban North.

Regular and Reunion Passports are still available at www.ragefestival.co.za.

Passports are not for sale to persons under the age of 18. Attendees need to be 18 at the start of Rage 2015 to be granted access to the festival and venues.
