The four-day festival, offering 120 burlesque and variety performances in four venues, has sold-out every year since its premiere in 2003.

“It’s four nights of tassels and tail feathers, glitter and glamour in Gotham,” said Jen Gapay of Thirsty Girl Productions, co-founder of the New York Burlesque Festival. ”The world’s best burlesque performers at four of New York City’s hottest nightclubs is the hottest ticket in town.”
The festival's other co-founder Angie Pontani will also be performing in Saturday's show. Pontani was the World “Queen of Burlesque,” winning the Miss Exotic World 2008 competition, and she will be featured as part of a forthcoming PBS “Great Performances” series dancing live with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett at Lincoln Center. This is scheduled to air on PBS on Oct. 24, 2014.
Australia's Imogen Kelly, the World Queen of Burlesque 2012, Burgundy Brixx, named Vancouver, Canada’s “Reigning Burlesque Queen” by Vancouver Magazine, and Michelle L'amour, semi-finalist for “America's Got Talent,” and ranked in the Top 5 of Burlesque by 21st Century Burlesque magazine, are just a few of the other stand-out talents at this year’s festival.
A nightly Burlesque Bazaar at each venue will include custom corsets, pasties, hair ornaments, vintage dresses, makeup, lingerie, and pin-up makeovers. An afternoon Burlesque Bazaar on Sunday will feature surprise performances, go-go dancers, DJs, shuffle board and a live pin-up shoot with celebrated burlesque photographer, Don Spiro.
