This Saturday, 9 November 2013, my roller derby league, the Cape Town Rollergirls, is taking part in the very first Rockabilly Festival in South Africa! The Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells comprises a crew of rockabilly lovers and legends that are here to introduce this culture to South Africa by bring all things rockabilly together at this event!
Maria and Zigi, head honchos of this rockabilly event were recently on Expresso Show on SABC3 – you can see the clip here. Expect Hot Rods, custom bikes, enchanting burlesque dancers, a fun game set up by the Cape Town Rollergirls, epic rockabilly bands, food, fashion, dirt-tracking by Dickies Dirt Track and an all-round retro flavor at this Rockabilly Festival in Cape Town.
