Rockabilly Festival


Rockabilly FestivalDo you love hot rods, custom bikes, burlesque and an all-round retro flavour? Then be sure to catch the first official Rockabilly Festival to be held in South Africa, hosted by Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells in Cape Town, on 9 November 2013.

What’s it all about? Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells were inspired to create a platform where all the related aspects of Rockabilly culture can be celebrated together – from classic cars, a dirt track to the thrills of the roller derby, fashion to food, not to forget enough live music and other entertainment to take festival goers all the way from noon to midnight.

One of the highlights of the festival will be the Dickies Dirt Track, where festival goers can register their classic car or custom bike for a ride on a typical dusty track. True rebels will remember the iconic Dickies brand. Born in America as a rough and tough clothing brand, it was adopted by motor-heads who weren’t willing to compromise on style, all while getting the job done.

Red Bull will be supplying the sound track for the day accompanied by some of Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells finest DJs. With Hellfire supplying the sound and Marshall Music – ‘setting the tone’ they guarantee great live performances from the entertainment line up.
