BE SMART WITH YOUR YOUR DRINKS
- Watch your drink at all times
- Cover your drink with your hand
- Watch your drink being made
- Don’t leave your drink unattended
- Utilize the buddy system
- Don’t accept a drink if you don’t know where it came from
Use the buddy system:
You and your crew will undoubtedly get separated at some point. When arriving at Joburg Rage events, get to know your surroundings and agree on a meeting point. Partying in numbers will ensure your safety.
Don’t sell or buy drugs:
Undercover cops are inside all of the official Joburg Rage Festival venues. Don’t ruin your experience by spending nights in the police station or worse, being charged with a crime. Our policy is zero-tolerance, you have been warned!

RAPE PREVENTION ADVICE
What seems like harmless fun to one person can do lasting damage to another. Here’s how to:
- Be aware of your surroundings. Trust your instincts. If you’re uncomfortable, move on or out
- Don’t go in alone. Travel in pairs and stay in well-lit areas
- Date rape drugs are real. Don’t take drinks from strangers. Also, don’t set your drink down and pick it up later
- Don’t get too drunk. Consumption of alcohol can lead to a lowering of your personal and moral boundaries
Help someone who may have been harmed
- Help them seek immediate medical attention and notify safety personnel
- It should never be brushed off or taken lightly
- If the person who harmed them is still nearby, stay with the victim
Avoid causing harm to yourself
- Remember that “no” means “NO,” even if it’s said politely. And, no answer is NOT “yes.”
- Keep in mind that someone who is under the influence of alcohol is not capable of making responsible decisions
- Monitor yourself. Some people cross the line without realizing it
- Be supportive and a good listener—reassure them they are not to blame
