"We encourage that if you can, #keepyourticket and keep the industry alive. By not requesting a refund and holding onto your ticket for the future date, you will not only be supporting the artists, but the wider industry of venues, agents, managers, promoters, hospitality workers and so many more who work tirelessly behind the scenes on the events that bring so much joy to all of our lives, and whose livelihoods depend on the industry. These shows are very popular and sell out quickly so we hope you will keep your tickets and join us in 2022." - Aus Burlesque Festival

Your tickets will be valid for your new show and you don’t need to do anything, just hold on to your tickets. If you require a refund, please follow the steps here. If you want to attend a different show, you need to apply for a refund then repurchase tickets. Refund requests must be submitted prior to 5pm on Friday 1 October 2021.

Sparkling Sinners | Sunday 17 April

You’re in for an enticing treat when the Sparkling Sinners comes to town…

It’s bizarre.
It’s mysterious.
It’s all you never knew you wanted!

Hold your breath as we combine the best of the dark side of burlesque: featuring the best of neo-burlesque, queer art, fetish delights, sizzling erotica, satire, parody and all that’s in between.

So sit down, recline, relax and get ready to enjoy a night of mesmerising burlesque adventure! 

Hosted by Sellma Soul with special guest Rielle La'Vish.
