As usual, there will be something For Everyone to be Sampled, Bought, Tasted, and Tried at the festival this year.
The organisers have dug deep and provided Cape Town’s finest lifestyle vendors for the Dusty Rebels and The Bombshells Rockabilly Festival (DRTB), making sure anyone and everyone has something to see and do at SA’s premier 40s and 50s lifestyle festival.
First of all, don’t go hungry…
The NOB’s famously huge burgers are worth saving yourself for. Add a Chip n Dip. Jack Rabbit’s specialised comfort food options are always a pleasant, event-specific surprise, while Wahineoffers Asian and Polynesian food, with vegetarian options.
Baguette Bicycle hotdogs are famous around the SA festival circuit, while El Burro and Meisies Kitchenstock a taste of Mexico and Portugal respectively. Cool down with ice cream from Creamy tops and ice lollies from Las Paletas, and snack on some tasty treats from Second Breakfast and La Rhine Biltong.
Finally, you can wash it all down in the Jack Daniels Bar Area, or if you prefer, with great coffee from Brazillaint Express.
Cars and Bikes
DRTB is all about getting motors running. Harley - Davidson Tygervalley and Anvl Kraft will be on site for bike enthusiasts. 8 Crate Garage specializes in complete muscle car restoration, fabrications & conversions of cars. Need some new gear? Mr Helmet provides unique, freaky and attitude helmets for all uses. Detroit Vintage Garage will display some of their vintage, classic and exotic car items.
SA Hotrods Magazine will also be on site to cover the event, and will be available to chat to on the day.
Make-up and Hair
Mac Cosmetics provide their unique products for that bombshell look; Scar will provide 40s and 50s rockabilly hair styling, while Barnet Fair and Widow Maker offer classic barber services (including beard-care) for the rebels.
Shop till you bop…
This year’s kiddies area is hosted by Clamber Club, so you can take a moment to get to some of the dozens of vendors on show.
Decades of Vintage sells exactly what the name says: vintage clothing, collectables, vintage jewelry, bags, suitcases and more.
And for the first time this year, our new store, Retrospective Fashion Recreated (Cape Town) will be there, having taken a double booth! We will have a huge selection of Rockabilly and Pinup clothing, accessories, footwear and vintage inspired swimwear.
For sportier types there’s a board with your name on it at Dutchie Surf Designs, and Gabrielle Swimwear for the summer that’s upon us, ideal also for some work from Quick Tattoos.
The city’s favourite Cape Town Rollergirls clans will be offering fans T-shirts. And of course you are obliged to commemorate the day with a Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells T-shirt and calendar.
Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells takes place on Saturday 14 November 2015 at the West Coast Ostrich Ranch, from 12 noon.
