4U Rage Festival – Just under 3 weeks

JUST UNDER THREE WEEKS UNTIL  4U RAGE FESTIVAL KICKS OFF  IN BALLITO AND UMHLANGA

G&G PRODUCTIONS MAKES SURE YOU ARE ENTERTAINED 24/7 FOR THE ENTIRE 4U RAGE FESTIVAL

FF480ED9-E6F3-4792-881C-B93A15B70088 

There is no better way to unwind and party up a storm after a long hard year of studying and working than at the 4U RAGE FESTIVAL taking place in Ballito and Umhlanga in Kwa-Zulu Natal from the 29th of November to the 7th of December 2013.

All the international acts along with the stellar local acts will be performing at the revolutionary Sound Factory brought to you by G&G Productions. Not only has G&G Productions provided the biggest and best venue to celebrate 4U RAGE FESTIVAL but they have also ensured that there will not be one second of the festival where you can be left unentertained. Willards Beach in Ballito will host many daytime activities while getting that bronze tan and showing off your chiseled assets. There will be beach touch rugby, beach volleyball as well as a beach soccer pitch setup for all the sporty types to enjoy in the day. If being too active in the day is not your thing, The Coconut Grove on the beach will host many DJ’s performing throughout the day as well as chill areas where you can enjoy a non-alcoholic coconut cocktail, getting the energy levels revitalized for the next big party that night. The 4U RAGE squad will also be scouting the areas giving out many exciting spot prizes as well as making sure you are being entertained non-stop throughout the festival.

Blackberry will also be providing many opportunities to win exclusive experiences such as entry into the Upgrade Deck at the Sound Factory which includes a VIP area with complimentary drinks, food and lounge areas. Also on offer for ragers is the opportunity to mingle with celebs and get the VIP treatment in the 4U and Blackberry Mini’s that will be on the go every afternoon at the festival. Ragers will also have the chance to win their share of R600 000 worth of prizes which includes Vodacom 4U vouchers, Blackberry smartphones, Jam Jar Bluetooth speakers and much more.

After the announcement that eight premium international DJ’s in the form of R3hab, Danny Avila, Borgore, Stimming, Tube & Berger, Bakermat, Hannah Wants and Madeon was made, 4U RAGE PASSPORTS started becoming scarce from selling out at a rapid rate. Party people of South Africa started creating many online viral campaigns of their own to win exclusive 4U RAGE PASSPORTS with Platinum treatment. The winner has been chosen and they will have the ultimate 4U RAGE FESTIVAL experience by spending the week in a mansion with five friends partying it up at the biggest youth festival in South Africa.

4U RAGE FESTIVAL and G&G Productions encourages responsible and safe partying for all those that attend. Many measurements have been put into place to ensure all those that attend have the biggest and best party while being safe. Red Frogs (082 RED FROGS), along with Rape Wise, will be present at the 4U RAGE FESTIVAL educating young people to make safe and responsible choices in the partying culture by being present at The Sound Factory, main hotels in Umhlanga and Ballito and also be on call 24/7 for any ragers that are in need of assistance. There will be qualified medics on hand to assist with anything throughout the festival as well as a qualified health and safety officer who is part of the 4U RAGE FESTIVAL staff.

There will be zero tolerance for drinking and driving. Vodacom 4U, BlackBerry and G&G Productions will be providing 50 4U RAGE FESTIVAL branded shuttle transporters for all ragers on the move.

4U RAGE FESTIVAL is proudly sponsored by Vodacom 4U and BlackBerry.

Colour Festival Durban 2013 – Photos

Durban’s first colour festival took place on Saturday 6 April 2013… I arrived a little late, and completely underestimated the traffic coming in towards Gateway. Arriving just before the scheduled first Colour Throw, I scrambled to get my camera ‘dustproofed’, a few plastic bags, some insulation tape and a bit of duct tape, that was as good as it was going to get.
0001103_0

I managed to get through to the main area just as the throw happened, but wasn’t quite ready to get the shots. None the less this wasn’t a big deal. There was a colour throw planned every hour on the hour and there was plenty powder getting given out to the masses, definitely no shortage there.

Music wise, I must admit, its not my typical scene, I’m not particularly fond of the general stereotypical people that go to these events. Thankfully though this was a very mixed crowd, with people from all walks of life, young and old, that came to get covered in colourful powder. The venue was packed, I haven’t attended an event at Wavehouse that had seen so many people in that area, which was an awesome sight.

I must comment, however that people in Durban clearly don’t understand the concept, there was little unison when it came to throwing the powder up all at the same time. It seemed to happen in smaller groups. With the majority of people just throwing it directly at there friends.

The bar areas were inadequate in my opinion, I didn’t even bother trying to get a drink, I think there were about 4 or 5 separate bar areas available and they were all overflowing with the 6000+ colour festival attendees.
Lets not forget the bathrooms, I don’t know if it was from the powder itself, or the packets the powder came in, but all the basins were blocked, and overflowing, spilling a brown liquid all over the place. The cleaning staff were clearing the area throughout the event, but not being very considerate, splashing this dirty water all over any unsuspecting person that walked into the restroom.

All in all the event was as expected, a lot of colourful mess, with some awesome DJ’s that kept the crowd moving the duration of the event. The general feeling seemed as if the majority enjoyed the event and enjoyed getting colourful.
