PLETTENBERG BAY - Organisers of the Plettenberg Bay Rage event say they’ve reached a point of no return and won't cancel.

Some 900 people are expected to attend this year’s festival that’s been held since 2019.

Organisers say testing will be carried out on a daily basis and only those who are fully vaccinated will be allowed in.

“We’ve made the decision to continue with hosting the event because the Ragers are coming down anyway, so, whether we like it or not they’re all going to be in Plettenberg Bay," Plett Rage organiser Ronen Klugman said.

"We can see already a bulk of them while onsite building the event space we can see them at the beaches they’re in and around town. I think we are now passed the point of no return.”

This comes on the back of the Ballito rage festival in Durban having been forced to cancel after over 30 attendees tested positive for COVID-19.

Klugman said they’re taking the responsible and safer route and all attendees will be required to be fully vaccinated and will follow strict rules for the duration of the event.

“They get an IRF identification it’s an armband with a chip on it and they get scanned."
