Media Reviews!

"An event of the highest quality! Not to be missed when it arrives in your neck of the woods?" – 3 Fates Media

“Although all the artists were bombshells, the performers who incorporated additional accoutrements, made the act of taking their clothes off quite secondary to their overall mystique, which is very much at the crux of effective burlesque: enchantment, chimera and intrigue proved to be as breathtaking and arguably more erotic than sheer nudity” – Theatre Review

“Whether you’re an old hand at burlesque, or you know even less about it than you could learn from a viewing of Gypsy, the Australian Burlesque Festival is an amazing opportunity to see some of the best cabaret from around Australia and the world” – Adelaide University

“The curtains opened and it felt electric. I was totally hooked” – Aphra Magazine“One of Sydney’s top ten Burlesque events!” – Timeout Sydney

“There’s something for absolutely everyone at the Australian Burlesque Festival.” –

“Tonight we attended The Australian Burlesque Festival. What a glam-glorious night starring Australia’s best performers!” – The Dusk Zone Blogger
