Welcome to VBF!
Be part of a united family that wants to live in a world of inclusion, diversity and empowerment. A family that is not willing to sit by while the rights of those who are marginalized are ignored or trampled on #breakfree and let‘s start a movement!

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.
