On Ireland’s west coast lies the City of the Tribes, a place famed for its bohemian citizens, cobbled streets and a year-long line-up of festivals and events. This year, Galway is getting a sexy new feile – The Galway Burlesque Festival.

The festival which will take place from the 18th – 20th September is sure to set fire to stages around the City. Favourite venues like Seven Bar and the Roisin Dubh will host the diverse roster of Irish and international talent.

The geniuses behind this sexy three-night party are Burlesque performer, Shir Madness and Dirty Circus Producer, Tommy Walsh. Festival goers will be treated to some seriously hot shows from the biggest names in burlesque: Calamity Sparks, Fabio Ego Deflato and Celeste de Moriae, to name but a few.

There will also be a series of workshops on offer, where wannabes can learn the intricacies of the art; the twerkshop, balloon-pop, and make-up classes will give Galwegians the tools to get their own at-home performances up and running.
