About Our Festival

Why organise an Antwerp Burlesque festival you ask? Well, simply because we felt like hosting a few nights where everything revolves around the art of seduction, extravagant and sexy outfits, tight corsets, big feathers and spinning tassels. Naughty and exciting!
All this, just to seduce an audience with a beautiful selection of theatrical, sexy, stylish and humorous acts. There's a reason "We tease to please" is our credo for this swinging festival.

Dress to impress

Since the last four editions were such huge succeses, we're going to do something special for our fifth anniversary festival on 27 and 28 April 2018. Just like last year, we'll treat you with a magnificent double bill.
On Friday 27 April, we'll be kicking off with the Grand Opening Night, where we'll introduce you to some new wonderful acts and fresh faces. And on Saturday 28 April we'll celebrate our fifth Antwerp Burlesque Festival with a Best Of night, inviting some of our most loved performers back to the stage, back to the spotlights and back in front of our amazing audience.
Being able to present this magnificent event at the most beautiful venue in Antwerp, La Riva, brings us nothing but joy!
Again, this will be a stylish weekend, and we'll be more than happy to welcome you. Get ready to be swept away during these evenings filled with cocktail dresses, frivolous evening gowns, tight suits, suspenders and high heels. Dress to impress, and we'll collectively make these nights unforgettable.
