South Africa: RAGE IN THE CITY
Johannesburg, South Africa: Rage In The City starts the festivities this December. In partnership with YFM and Trace TV. Thousands of fun-loving Joburgers experienced the city’s first ultimate three-day festival, Rage In the City, this past weekend.
The festival was created by event pioneers, G&G Productions, to answer the demand for a year-end celebration in the heart of the city.
#RITC2019 kicked off with a warm-up club hopping experience in the streets of Braamfontein on Friday 29 November. The event featured killer performances from Franks Casino, The Big Hash, DBN Gogo and others.
Day Two Festivities
Day two certainly turned Constitution Hill into a mega outdoor music and lifestyle arena. It started off with a basketball showdown tournament, with Skinny Boyz OG crowned the ultimate dunk kings in the “Shoot Your Shot” challenge, in partnership with Loq Down.
Performances from Sho Madjozi, Moonchild, Nasty C, Kabza De Small, Maphorisa and the first South African female rapper to reach platinum status, Boity ,had the crowds vibing the entire night. Fans also got to meet UK-based African YouTubers, Ubunifu Space, who are currently on a South African tour.
Furthermore, Ragers certainly ended the weekend experience at Secret Sundays. A partnership with CottonFest, at Carfax, Newtown. Students brought to their feet with energetic performances by Uncle Vinnie, Costa Titch, with King “Kotini” himself, and Riky Rick bringing the house down to end three days of musical ecstasy.
Will McIntyre, Festival Director at G&G Productions shared his thoughts on the event;
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with how Rage In The City was received. We had over 3,000 students across the full weekend of celebration, partying it up after a long year of studying. Most importantly, we had no security issues. All event spaces well-managed by security and local SAPS teams. This was year one and we cannot wait to expand the festival over the next few years,” adds McIntyre.
Above all, it seems as if Rage surely brought some heat to Johannesburg with the best performers and the best party vibes! South Africa knows how to party and we certainly cannot wait for more this festive season! Let us know how your rage experience was!
