Dear Burlesque lovers, friends, family and fans,

due to Covid-19, and still no green light from the government for cultural events to take place, we will have to postpone this year's event to 23 & 24 April 2022.

We would like to thank all of you for your continuing patience, support and love. Let's glitter and shine in 2022. Stay safe & healthy and let us pray we can hit the stage again very soon.


Since all of us have been dealing with Covid-19 and its restrictions for quite some time now, we've been waiting for some good news just like everybody else. Waiting to see how the pandemic evolves, and what this will mean for Antwerp Burlesque towards the summer.

In the meantime, we're staying positive (not thàt kind of positive) and are doing everything we can to be ready when the club circuit is allowed to open again.

What we want most of all is to have the Antwerp Burlesque Festival take place, with all of you there! Cabaret the way it is supposed to be, live entertainment with a live crowd.

2022 festival

The early birds that already purchased their tickets for the 2020/2021 festival can sleep on both ears. Your tickets will always stay valid, even if we end up having to move the date or location. The same goes for tickets purchased today. Should you want a refund, just get in touch via email.

We are ready to entertain you, and are very much looking forward to welcome you all back to our festival!

We tease to please!

About Our Festival

Why organise Antwerp Burlesque festival you ask? Well, simply because we feel like hosting a couple of nights every year where everything revolves around the art of seduction, extravagant and sexy outfits, tight corsets, big feathers and spinning tassels. Naughty and exciting, just like our fans!
All this, just to seduce an audience with a beautiful selection of theatrical, magical, 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 six editions were such huge succeses, we'll be back with something special for our eighth anniversary and seventh festival on 7 and 8 May 2021. Just like the past years, we will treat you with a magnificent double bill.
On Friday 7 May 2021 , 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 8 May 2021 we'll celebrate our 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.
