The Australian Burlesque Festival was established in late 2009 which was born out of a passion and desire to celebrate our wonderful burlesque community.
ABF debuted in early 2010 to sold out audiences with the festival flourishing and continuing to experience hugely popular and sold out shows across the country. Each year gets bigger and better with more lavish, exciting and fun events.
Australian burlesque is internationally renown for its unique flavour of theatrical, glamorous and avant-garde burlesque and outrageously talented performers. The Australian Burlesque Festival brings together the best of our homegrown artists as well as international burlesque icons!
The past number years have seen burlesque aficionados and first timers alike delighting in the stunning array of sensational tease with more glamorous strip-tease, exciting neo-burlesque and exotic seduction than they can handle!
The Australian Burlesque Festival is a unique community based experience uniting burlesque artists all over the country and the globe in a tour of sizzling showcases, workshops and industry awards. The festival celebrates diversity, variety and talent from all over the world.
