Welcome to VBF!
For one week each year the Vienna Boylesque Festival will deliver world-class progressive performance art from burlesque artists, drag artists, dancers, and beyond to an international audience in Vienna. Through expression, exploration and discussion it will help forward positive attitudes to bodies, sex, and gender across Austria, Europe, and the World. The Festival is proud to call Vienna it’s home and will work with the city, community organizations and companies to deliver cultural and economic benefits to the region.


Why should I apply to the VBF?

The VBF-Family loves to create events full of passion, professionalism and a variety of all different aspects of our beloved art form ‚Burlesque‘. We’re bringing you each festival the pick of the glitter in form of international headliners. Meet your favorite performers, hang out with them and just have fun – as a big happy family … as cheesy that may sound, but we really are a family!
