Dust off those beach umbrellas; Plett Summer is just around the corner and, once again, we have an unforgettable summer calendar packed with seaside fun, awesome sporting events and world-class performers!
Watch this space over the next few weeks as we roll out our Plett Summer calendar of events…
Plett Rage, running from the 29th of November to the 6th of December, is one of South Africa’s oldest and best-known student festivals bringing students together from all over the country to celebrate the end of their schooling career. Epic artists, great locations and excellent planning make for a memorable annual event, and we expect nothing less from this year’s Rage!
Located at Central Beach during the day, the Bikini Beach Bar will be hosting the ragers from 11-7pm , and then the party will move to Rietvlei, also known as Coco Valley, where superb bands and amazing djs will be keeping the crowds entertained from 8pm – 2am.
Dedicated transport systems will have pre-planned routes to shuttle students between Rage venues, keeping them off the roads and in safe hands. Transport between pick-up locations and Rietvlei will be free of charge, and transport during the day will work off a R20 Taxi Token system.
