They say the dust up north is unique. So South Africa’s premier vintage lifestyle festival will return to the north this year, to add a certain flare to another of our capital cities. Dusty Rebels and The Bombshells will bring its signature fare of 40s and 50s cars, fashion and music to 012 Central in Helen Joseph Street on 14 May 2016.
Returning to the day’s festivities are the PTown Roller Derby League doing a mini bout. DRTB icons The Blue Haired Betty and Miss Bombshell Betty 2015 – who was crowned at Dusty Rebels and The Bombshells in Cape Town on November 2015 will be attending with 4 of last year’s finalists. They will host a competition on the day for the best pinup gal, so all the bombshells are encouraged to put their best fashion foot forward.
The Betties will also be recruiting pinups for the Miss Bombshell Betty 2016 competition to be held at The Dusty Rebels and The Bombshells festival on the 12 November 2016 in Cape Town.
This years live bands include Gunshot Blue, Hellcats, the Ratrod Cats (Cape Town), The Spinebenders, Oh So Serious and with DJ Ted and DJ Michael Lesar playing some tunes inbetween. Black Orchid Burlesque will perform a tantalising burlesque show, a fashion show to spice things up and the day’s entertainment will be rounded off by DJ Rockabilly Rythmn playing the finest classic tunes of the era.
Our favourite vendors will offer make-up, clothing, jewellery, helmets, a barber shop, memorabilia, food and drink.

The idea behind the name Dusty Rebels & the Bombshells:
One of the attractions will be cars and bikes; we believe DUST represents the outdoors/speed /dirt tracking.
The Rockabilly followers are known to be REBELS not necessarily conforming to the everyday norm. They are uniquely different and equally passionate individuals.
The Gals of Rockabilly feature Burlesque and Pinups with class and feminine style. And we are 2 females organizing the event and believe we are 100% Bombshells.
