For over 20 years, rAge has been the geek destination for South Africans; the culmination of year-long waits and months of pent-up video game hype. It was always the be-all-and-end-all of conventions in South Africa, and it has always been amazing. That is, until the pandemic struck and the world as we knew it changed forever. Gone were the days of innocent “vidje geam” event memory-making with friends, but not forgotten. Thankfully, rAge 2022 is set to make one of its biggest comebacks yet with a brand-new venue and revitalised purpose – and you can be a part of it! 

It really cannot be overstated just how important rAge is to the South African geekosphere. For decades, it has opened up the local video gaming scene to new and important happenings from across the pond and elevated the entertainment sector tenfold. The next chapter begins on 9 December 2022 and we want you to be there!
