In a statement, the organisers say vaccination and smart testing will ensure the music festival gets the go-ahead.

South Africa is currently on adjusted level two lockdown and curfew is between 11 pm and 4 am. 

Only 250 people are allowed at outdoor events. 

"In addition to the requirement to be fully vaccinated, the organisers will be making use of WHO and SAHPRA approved Rapid Antigen tests. All staff will need to be fully vaccinated too and will be tested daily before entry. Attendees will be tested on the first, third, and final days of the five-day festival.

"The team is working tirelessly on the Ballito Rage 2021 safety, Covid-19 mitigation, and operational plan. The Covid-19 mitigation tools at our disposal in 2021 are incomparable with 2020," said Greg Walsh, CEO of G&G Productions.

In 2020, a report found at least two people who attended the festival had tested positive for Covid-19 and had given false information during the screening process.
