There’s no shortage of excitement at the Hell City Tattoo Festival and the Main Stage is no exception! A few of the events gracing our Main Stage at this year’s Fests are Burlesque, a Freakshow, the Hell City Hotties Competition, and Live Music!


Cervena Fox is bringing her Demon Burlesque act to her first year at Hell City Killumbus and Phoenix! In this show, which debuted in 2016, the London-based model, Cervena Fox, comes straight from the depths of Hell as a sparkling demon. The show is set to “Judith” by Perfect Circle and features spinning fabric fans, mimicking fire, during this belly dancing-burlesque fusion performance.

Finland’s entertainment star LouLou D’vil, the #1 Burlesque Figure in the World and Miss Exotic World – Queen of Burlesque 2013 has tantalized audiences all around the World since 2008 touring around the globe for more than 17 times.
