Written on .
When we heard the music of this organic mix of electronica, modern pop music and Ukrainian folk instruments we got goose bumpse, NOW we are thrilled to announce the performance of ONUKA on the final day of the World Bodypainting Festival 2017 AND there is more to come along with them!
The festival sunday is a traditional very relaxed and remixed morning and the afternoon there is the big chill with for example the famous Reggae-Band Big Mountain who became world famous with their hit "Baby, I Love Your Way". The multi platinum-selling band announced a return to the road with their upcoming 2017 tour and Austria with the World Bodypainting Festival is one of their stops.
In co-operation with the team of the popular artist MATILDA we have developed a new competition, the "Purple Brush Award". This award will in future tour around the world, and the finals are presented annualy at the World Bodypainting Festival. With € 2.000 cash prizes plus products this competition is another very attractive one at the WBF for advanced make-up artists. The theme is "Fashion Seduction"
We are very happy to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the World Bodypainting Festival with ALVARO SOLER and many others, live on stage. The Latino Star will get the crowd into massive dance movement on the second main day of the festival. Also on saturday, there are many more live bands coming up, for example the German Urban Brass group MOOP MAMA.
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.
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!
