Safety First

Hey there, we completely understand that as a parent, it can be nerve-wracking to think about your child entering the adult world. But rest assured, with over 20 years of experience in creating a safe and secure environment for Ragers, we take the safety and well-being of all attendees very seriously.

We have implemented some of the most stringent safety and security measures to ensure that everyone can have a good time in a safe environment. As festival organisers, we also rely on parents and guardians to instill values and good decision-making skills in their children.

At Plett Rage, attendees face newfound freedoms and decision-making responsibilities, which is why we encourage open and honest conversations between parents/guardians and their children about expectations, potential risks, and consequences associated with the festival.

Ultimately, the education and values that the child has received will guide them in making the right decisions at Plett Rage. We believe that through communication and trust, we can ensure that attendees have a memorable and safe experience while they enjoy the festivities.

Alcohol Use & Partying

We want to assure you that Plett Rage is not the extreme drinking event that some sensational journalism might suggest. In fact, we’ve noticed a significant shift in the behaviour and attitudes of Matrics attending our festival over the last five years. They have become more responsible and focused on healthy living and party habits.

Our festival is committed to promoting a safe and healthy environment for all attendees. We’ve seen a rise in the popularity of sugar-free and healthy drink options, opting for less single-use plastics, and many attendees are practicing less alcohol consumption. We’re proud to be part of this positive change and support it through our festival offerings.

We acknowledge that risks are still associated with any large-scale event, but we want to assure you that we take every precaution to ensure the safety and well-being of all those attending Plett Rage. We have implemented strict security measures and emergency protocols to handle any situation that may arise.

We hope that this information helps ease any concerns you may have.

Safety Measures at Plett Rage:

Our dedicated team of security personnel, medical staff, and emergency services are on site and ready to assist at all times. In addition, we have strict rules and regulations in place to prevent any dangerous or illegal behaviour, including alcohol misuse.

You can rest assured that medical assistance is covered by MedLife911, who will be stationed at each venue and have a separate response vehicle on standby in case of emergencies. For security, we have enlisted several roleplayers, including the PBCPA, SA police, Metro police, CSM Security, and Paragon Security, who specialise in event security and have been working with us for years.

Our Plett Shepherds, Red Frogs, and Amplified teams are also available to ensure your child’s safety during the festival. They are on night shift patrol and are trained to assist Ragers with anything they may need, from excessive alcohol consumption to helping Ragers who are separated from their friends. They will also take any Rager who needs it to seek further assistance from security or medical staff.

At Plett Rage, we take the safety and security of our attendees very seriously, and we want to assure you that we have taken every precaution to ensure that your child has a fun and safe experience.

RFID Access Control & Attendee Monitoring

As part of our commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all attendees at Plett Rage, we have implemented RFID access control and attendee monitoring through our ticketing partner, Howler. This technology allows us to track attendance and monitor crowd behaviour, providing valuable data that we can use to enhance safety measures and respond quickly in an emergency.

We use Howler’s RFID wristbands to store important personal info, like medical details and next of kin, to take immediate action if necessary when it counts.

Our Zero-Tolerance Of Illicit Substances

We want to assure you that we have strict policies in place to prevent drug use on our premises. In fact, compared to many other festivals in South Africa, drug use is extremely low at Plett Rage. We take the safety and security of all attendees very seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy towards illegal drugs. Our bouncers and undercover police keep a watchful eye out for any potential threats to our ban on illicit substances.

We want you to feel confident that your child will be safe and secure while having a great time at Plett Rage. If any individual is found to be in possession or under the influence of illegal substances, they will be immediately removed from the premises and dealt with by the authorities. We are committed to promoting a safe and enjoyable environment for all attendees, and we will continue to implement measures to prevent drug use and ensure the well-being of all who attend Plett Rage.

Rest assured that we have taken every precaution to ensure the health and safety of all those who attend Plett Rage to the best of our ability.
