The Perth International Burlesque Festival is an annual Burlesque event held in Perth, Western Australia.

The Perth International Burlesque Festival brings world-class international, interstate and local Burlesque, Cabaret and variety acts to Perth and regional West Australian audiences.

The festival gives show go-ers the opportunity to experience performance in styles that vary greatly and fantastically across nations, scenes, and personalities.

PIBF aims to both celebrate and support the local Burlesque community, as well as facilitate creative links and inspiring ways for international, interstate and local artists to develop, open doors, and realise their uniqueness onto the International scene.

Through performance, workshops, and social networking opportunities, the festival endeavours to provide a series of events that are of personal and professional value for both local and touring artists.

Above all, we look forward to presenting festival audiences with fabulous entertainment, burlesque, and the art of tease!!
