Virtual Satellite Venues

In 2021, RFF introduces the innovative “VSVs” (Virtual Satellite Venues) to even further expand it’s footprint. With VSVs, RFF partners with communities to create remote festival locations where local community members can attend and benefit. This as well being a way to minimise the spread of COVID-19 whilst reaching more people.


International Travel Information

Rustenburg is a well-developed city in the North West province of South Africa, it is 100 Kilometres west of Pretoria, South Africa’s capital city and only 47 KMs from the famous Sun City Resort and major game reserves, making your attendance of the festival an unforgettable thrill.
