Plett Rage Student Festival

Plett Rage

PLETT RAGE is the longest running student festival in the Southern Hemisphere. It started with a couple hundred students coming to Plett for a few days in the early 80’s to celebrate summer. Now the Plett Rage Student Festival is a 10 day non-stop party, attracting students from all over the country. Time to say good-bye to school and hello to freedom and the summer holidays in Plett!

About 15 000 students will descend on Plett on the 29th November 2013. Organisers have been hard at work and this year promises to be awesome with a great line up of bands, 10 days of partying, 6 epic festival venues, and amazing sponsors. Most of the day time activities take place on Central Beach; where ragers will get to play volley ball, touch rugby, beach soccer, and 360 Ball – a new ball and racquet sport sponsored by Carling Black Label. The atmosphere could not be more perfect to chill out, listen to cool tunes, work on the tan, relax and soak up the good sunshine!

Rage Tip 1: Red Frogs are the good guys and they will be there to help and support the students. Providing a very necessary service, Red Frogs are an internationally recognised student holiday support network aiming to provide a positive presence in the partying environment. Look out for their Chill Tent when the partying gets too much; you will be in good hands.

Rage Tip 2: Remember if the going gets tough, take time out and explore our beautiful Plettenberg Bay. We have the best beaches and our forests are full of stunning hikes. Check out our adrenalin sports, like Bungi Jumping  or  Sea Kayaking  The new guys on the block would love to show you Canyoning, which is a lot more than abseiling and  kloofing! 

Rage Tip 3: Students are to take responsibility and care and not put themselves into dangerous situations. Its all about having fun in a responsible manner! Remember to keep your emergency contact numbers, and local transport numbers somewhere safe, in case you lose your cellphone.

Rage Tip 4: Treat the place where you’re staying as you would your own home.  Be considerate of your neighbours – you are on holiday, they are not!  Familiarise yourself with your neighbours and look out for each other.  Don’t walk alone at night, stay in groups, use the designated taxis! Have a blast! But do it responsibly.

Freedom is just beginning, you don’t want to wreck it.

Whether it’s a quick walk you’d like, or a leisurely stroll, Salt River in Nature’s Valley is the one to do.
Abounding with beauty from every angle, Salt River will capture your heart! It’s one of our favourite Plettenberg Bay hikes. Set out along the beach, savour the majestic coastline, and stumble upon all sorts of special sea creatures. Climbing over the Blue Rocks be it the right time of the year, you are almost guaranteed a whale spotting. Over the rocks and a few steps up into the fynbos forest and on your way down take a look to the left and be prepared to be blown away. What lies before you is a special place!
Sit! Relax! Skim stones along the river! Take time out! Watch the whales! Enjoy life! Savour the moment…for those steps up are a killer! One step at a time and you’ll make it. Take a breather and enjoy the view, there’s nowhere else in the world you would rather be at this moment.

Back on top and enjoying the coolness of the trees, make your way to the Village Viewpoint. Blown away second time round! After experiencing this magnificent view, there’s a path taking you down the hillside and back towards the beach.
What goes up must come down! As many steps as there are going up there are taking you down!
This walk can be done either way, back to front and front to back. So put on your shoes, pack your lunch bag and set off!
