Cape Town – While the holiday is only kicking off this weekend for most, matrics from across the country have been flocking to Jbay Rage for a week already to celebrate the end of their school years.

Ahead of the last two shows in Jeffreys Bay this weekend, we chat to Christiaan Prinsloo, one of the organisers of Jbay Rage, about how the festival has grown and what to expect in 2018.

Check it out here:

What’s been the attendance at the festival so far?
The attendance grew a lot from last year where we had an average of 850 people per night. Now in 2017 we have about 1200 people through our doors each night. 

Has everything been a smooth ride so far in terms of the organisation and the young crowd attending the festival?

Yes, I can truly say that the event went smooth so far. No major hiccups. We plan this event for 11 months in advance to ensure that all the young people can have the best time in a safe environment.

Who’s been your favourite act so far?

All the shows were great! I would say Francois van Coke and Die Heuwels Fantasties stood out for me. They both brought the best energy to the stage and the crowd loved it.

Who is still set to perform?

Jack Parow on Friday 8 December and Sketchy Bongo on Saturday 9 December is our last two artists for Jbay Rage 2017. Tickets are available at Jolly Dolphin in Jeffreys Bay.

Do you have plans yet for next year’s Rage?

Yes, we definitely have some big plans for 2018. I can’t say to much, but one thing is certain: this is the beginning of big things.
