Zombie Walk WBF2017

That is going to be a blast in the inner city of Klagenfurt. The "Zombie Walk 2017" presented by Senjo Color, is one of the many side events of the World Bodypainting Festival week. This gore/fun event takes place Tuesday July 25 perfect fitting placed at the plague column on the old square.

Program overview  of the festival week (updated soon) 

 

The first music program highlights 2017

The new location in Klagenfurt on Lake Wörthersee offers the World Bodypainting Festival completely new opportunities for exploration. The art is in the focus and mixes up with the content of the cultural center of the city - from the Künstlerhaus (artist's house) to the Citygallery, from the state theater to the Alpe Adria Gallery. Many details, such as the free public bus network of the STW for festival visitors or free accesses with ticket holders to the galleries will be published soon.

BUT we have also packed a lot of music highlights. Pretty perfect fitting to the World Bodypainting Festival are "Alle Farben" means "All Colours" from Berlin and "257". But there is soooo much more to come!

Painted bodies, fire-breathers, burlesque dancers, freaks plus the finest club sounds - Roll up, Roll up! Into our magical Wonderland!

Competition Themes for 2017

We have all artist information ready for 2017 and now we are ready to publish the main themes for the bodypainting competitions.

After the last years festival we would be able to pull off the 20th anniversary in 2017. It was almost Utopian to realize the anniversary without skipping a year and consequently this reflection process gave rise to this years themes.

The 20 year anniversary, July 24 - 30, 2017.

Dear Festival friends,

for the past nineteen years, The World Bodypainting Festival has been an integral part of the cultural and touristic events calendar in Carinthia. For six of those years the festival has hosted thousands of participants and visitors to Pörtschach at Lake Woerthersee.
Due to the increasing burden of the residents and their complaints, as well as the high costs of infrastructure we are no longer able to continue at the current location.
2017 will signal the 20th Anniversary of The World Bodypainting Festival. We truly feel it deserves to be a very special one and for many weeks we have been playing with the notion that perhaps the 2017 festival would not take place.
Recently an alternative location has offered itself. After much economic and infrastructural consideration, we believe we have found our new World Bodypainting Festival HOME.
The WB-Production is happy to announce the city of Klagenfurt and the capital of Carinthia to be the new location of The World Bodypainting Festival. Klagenfurt am Woerthersee is an international established event location that will allow the festival to flourish and develop for many years.
We are particularly interested in networking with all the great art and cultural initiatives the city has to offer. We are also sure that everyone will be happy with the centrally located airport and main train station. In addition Klagenfurt offers artists and visitors alike a city vibe filled with restaurants, cafes and all types of shopping including the lakeside. The World Bodypainting Festival has always been and will continue to be a melting pot of art and entertainment. The new venue is embeded in the stunning ambience of the state theatre, the art house, different galleries and the house of architecture. 

We look forward to a sensational 20th year in Klagenfurt, Carinthia in the south of Austria.
