We are pleased to announce the third annual Metalesque Fest held in the creative and cloudy city of Portland, OR on October 4-5-6 of 2018. Portland is home to one of the nation's most active burlesque communities AND metal music scenes. Metalesque Fest merges the two art forms in a three day celebration featuring burlesque performances set to heavy metal music and bands that fit the genre. This is the only fest of it's kind, curated by local metal burlesque troupe Sign of the Beast Burlesque which was founded in Portland, OR in 2010. Your producers for this event are local burlesque performers/producers Hai Fleisch and Rocket.
Join us as we crank up the volume in downtown Portland with a three day festival showcasing the most brutal and bewitching entertainers from our fair city, and beyond, and live metal music from our favorite bands!
Friday October 5, 2018 is the second night at the historic Star Theater Portland, also in downtown. This night stars our visiting burlesque headliner Frankie Fictitious (Miss Viva Las Vegas 2017, Best Small Group at Burlesque Hall of Fame, 20th Century Burlesque Top 50 Performer) Friday's show features classic and neo burlesque, circus arts, aerial performers, and pole dancers.
