The `Smörgåsbord of Sin` – a spectacular, genderfu**ing, glittering, delicious extravaganza with the crème de la crème of top international Burlesque Stars!

Welcome to one of the top burlesque events on the planet – a fantasy world encapsulating the renaissance and revival of burlesque, cabaret and related artform’s in two of Stockholm’s most beautiful venues.

Amazing performers from all over the globe; 14 countries and four continents collide in Stockholm to create two magical showcases with a spectacular array of all things burlesque: classic, neo, drag, boylesque, cabaret, circus, dance and music.
