As part of Rage Festival’s ongoing evolution, festival founders G&G Productions, have made a seismic announcement: Sound Factory moves to Ballito!

Sound Factory is the epic epicentre of Rage Festival, one mega-venue that is home to everything the festival represents: the biggest parties, the best international and local DJ’s, unforgettable experiences, state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology, world-class production and activations across four stages over four nights.

As the festival’s flagship venue, it’s essential that Sound Factory is located in the best, safest and most accessible place possible. For the last four years, it was located next to Kings Park Stadium in Durban.

The move to Ballito means Sound Factory will now be closer to the two festival hubs, Ballito and Umhlanga, where the bulk of Ragers stay and party over the nine days. Transport will be cheaper as distances between Sound Factory, Rage’s club venues and accommodation will be closer (travel time to Sound Factory will now be 10 minutes from Ballito’s La Montagne hotel and 25 minutes from Umhlanga Sands Hotel, where before it was 45 minutes from Ballito and 20 minutes from Umhlanga). The new location is safer and overall a much better venue, set amidst the rolling hills of Ballito, it’s more suitable for an outdoor festival, which Ragers have been asking for.
