Yes, the Rage Festival age restriction does get enforced

What is the age restriction for the end-of-year Rage Festival in KwaZulu-Natal?

Princess Ndlovu, the mother of a teenager, wrote to Azania Mosaka to express her disappointment at what she says is miscommunication from Rage.

Ndlovu says agents promoting the event told her that even 16-year-olds can attend, while the website states that participants must be 18 years old.

The Rage Festival sees more than 15 000 young people from across South Africa and other parts of the world converge on Ballito and Umhlanga for eight days and seven nights of beach, sun, fun and music.

The way that it's being marketed to these students is that anyone can attend. She even gave an example that last year, even 16-year-olds attended.

This unclear message from Rage is concerning.

Spokesperson for the festival, Darren Sandras makes it clear that the age of admission is 18, as specified on the website.

If you are not 18 at the start of Rage you will not be granted entry.

Sandras says they will be addressing this matter with their 'ragents' who promote the event.
