About the festival



Glamour, grace, glitter. The Bavarian Burlesque festival will take place for the third time from 21. to 23. October  2023. International Burlesque stars will carry the audience into a world of fantasy and sensuality.


Like no other, Burlesque, skilfully combines the art of the tease and seduction in many ways.  Whether sensual, elegant, mysterious, explosive, cheeky or simply hilarious -  the sky is the limit.

It’s not about the strip, but about the tease. The play with the audience, the breath-taking  costumes, the music or the stories that the performances are telling.

The audience will be captured by an international cast of dazzling performers in two completely different shows.


The „Friday Night Tease“ takes place at Theater Drehleier, Munich’s first location for Burlesque. “The Filly Follies”, Munich’s Burlesque pioneers have been running international Burlesque shows in the theatre for several years. Together with Burlesque performers and promoters, Melody D’Amour and Bettie Berlin, they are also organising the Bavarian Burlesque Festival.


The pompous-baroque ambiance of the “Silbersaal” amazes with it’s awe-inspiring  paintings, gleaming chandeliers  and mystic light. The historic hall, build in 1896, provides a glamorous setting for the “Saturday Night Gala”.


And also the "Best of Festival" show on Sunday, where you can experience once again the highlights of the two previous evenings, will take place in the beautiful Silbersaal.
