Rage Rides will operate on a cash or cashless basis. You can choose either option depending on your preference.

Cash Option:

If you choose the cashless option, you will need to go to the cashless pick-up points to catch your lift to the venue you would like to attend. This option is advised for safety reasons, as it allows Rage Rides to track your trip. Please refer to the map to see where the shuttle ranks are located. Every night-time event venue has a pick-up point stationed outside. Load money onto your Passport before entering the shuttle (at a Top-Up Station). The fee charged to your Passport will be based on your trip from your location to your destination.

Red Frogs


Every year Rage Festival works hard to boost safety and security measures for Ragers, and the festival boasts an excellent track record. These measures include working with both the local police services and private security who operate openly and in plain clothes to monitor the festival across multiple venues.

A comprehensive safety team is employed including medics and the Red Frogs. Safety is managed by event-technology platform, Howler, Rage Festival’s NFC partner. Howler’s NFC system allows our safety team to access emergency contact details and medical history at the tap of a Rager’s Passport.


You’ve heard of the Red Frogs, right? They make you pancakes, walk you home safely and help out in difficult situations. They’re the coolest volunteer organization and seek to support as many young people as possible. It’s a completely free, no sign-up required service!
