Rage Festival 2015 launches rage rides - its new transport solution

2015-05-12 05:00

Cape Town - 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 a 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 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 Ride 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: 

Early Bird Umhlanga (First 1000 passes) - R500.00
Official Sale Umhlanga - R550.00

Early Bird Ballito (First 1000 passes) - R400.00
Official Sale Ballito - R450.00 

Rage Rides passes are available here

Rage Festival organisers, G&G Productions, are always looking to improve year on year, and along with an epic DJ line-up 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.

The Rage Festival will be taking place from 26 November to 5 December 2015.

Passport tiers and pricing can be found online on the official website.

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.
