After a stressful exam and school year, Plett Rage will be there to welcome Matrics back with open and sanitized arms.
By not hosting the festival last year and by observing what happened at Durban Rage 2020, the organisers have learned a lot. Their goal is to reset our music industry in the same way as Europe and the US have been doing. They feel more confident now that there is a better understanding of Covid-19.
The festival will now be broken up into two four-day parties, whereas traditionally it was one week non-stop. The first will be from 3 – 6 December, and then again from 8 – 11 December 2021. And in order to attend, all matrics must have proof of vaccination as well as a negative PCR test. Attendees will also have to undergo a rapid antigen test upon arrival and before returning home. “Upon arrival, organisers will test each Rager with a rapid antigen test before they receive a wristband. Due to Plett Rage being a multi-day event, we will also enforce another rapid antigen test before Ragers return home,” organisers said.
Even though the organisers are feeling confident at this stage, there is still talk about a fourth wave hitting the country. Thus, one month before the festival is set to take place, they will have a status meeting with all relevant parties. Should the go-ahead not be given due to the risk being too high, all possible Plett ragers will receive a full refund.
Now that South Africans 18-years and older are allowed to get vaccinated, Plett Rage will be the perfect motivation for the younger generation.
