Join us for our inaugural festival August 2-5 in Nashville, Tenn.

Delinquent Debutantes is thrilled to present the first ever Nashville Burlesque Festival! A four-day celebration of the best burlesque and variety arts from Nashville and beyond!

Nashville has turned out some of the most iconic hits in music history, the city that spawned them is a gem itself. Called “One of America’s Hottest Cities” by Forbes, the cover of a recent Rolling Stone Magazine, and named an “It” city by the NY Times, it’s time to peel back the country curtain.

The Nashville Burlesque Festival presents a different kind of rhinestone sparkle with glittering productions hosted at a historic Honky Tonk and inside a working whiskey distillery. Boasting a burlesque scene that has grown almost as rapidly as the city itself, Nashville is home to a talented group of dancers, costumiers and performance artists creating striptease art.

Presented by the Delinquent Debutantes, along with our incredible sponsors, the Nashville Burlesque Festival promotes bawdy positivity by celebrating the human form through breathtaking aesthetics and tantalizing talent.
