Since its inception in 2005, Rage Festival has grown from 500 attendees to now hosting over 30 000 students celebrating the end of an era, making Rage one of SA’s safest, most progressive and premium music festivals.

Passports went on sale yesterday and Early Birds sold out within five minutes of being released, with 60% of all passport types sold in record time – making this year’s festival even more in-demand than the 2016 event.

This year the festival has introduced three new passport types: Rage Red, Rage Blue and Rage Lite, catering to students who are looking for a more tailored and niche festival experience, and as opposed to attending every party. The new Passports cater for those who are also looking for a weekend escape as opposed to a full week of activities, and this year travel safety is of top priority.

All Rage Passports are not for sale to persons under the age of 18, and will ensure that students are able to go between their desired destinations seamlessly and safely.

This year also marks the launch of an innovative Rage Festival Ambassador Program, which will afford students who see themselves as influential and trendy among their peers the opportunity to become Ragents and official brand ambassadors. Previous Ragents have gone on to work at the festival after their studies – some of which are now a part of the core organisational team.


2017 is set to be bigger and better, with an even more outstanding production and line up than 2016’s offering, featuring some of the world’s best international DJs and a few of South Africa’s top performing artists.


Students are gearing up for the experience of a lifetime, as Rage Festival returns to Durban from 2-9 December 2017.
