Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells Lifestyle Festival

Do you know world famous Burlesque dancer (and Marilyn Manson’s ex-wife) Dita Von Teese? Have you heard of the Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells festival? Do you know the Christina Aguilera Candy Man video?


You’re probably wondering WHAT ON EARTH these three things have in common? All three celebrate charming American pinup culture and the 3 values of the Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells festival: uniqueness, self-expression and creativity.

It’s now in it’s third year, the Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells Rockabilly Lifestyle Festival celebrates all things Rockabilly. Voted as one of the top 10 festivals to attend in the Western Cape, this festival is for ‘all those fun-luvin’ katz who want a break from the big city hustle and bustle for a day and step back to the 40’s & 50’s for a day’.


  • Who: YOU!
  • Where: West Coast Ostrich Ranch
  • When: 14th of November 2015, from midday to midnight!

There will also be Burlesque shows on main stage from the Black Orchid Burlesque HQ and The Rouge Revue Burlesque Company.
