This year, the World Bodypainting Festival takes place in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee in Austria from July 12-14 2018. For 21 years now, the World Bodypainting Festival has been attracting teams of artists from more than 50 countries, each fighting for victory and the final world championship title in several categories and techniques. The Goethepark between Stadttheater and Künstlerhaus forms the backdrop for the numerous colorful installations and models. The soundtrack will be provided by international DJs and top acts.
The festival starts with a training and party program at the beginning of the week (Sunday July 8 – Wednesday July 11) before the actual world championship. The training program offers various workshops with experts from the fields of bodypainting, photography, special effects and make-up. The workshops are accompanied by side events such as exhibitions, parties, excursions and cozy “get-togethers” in numerous bars in Klagenfurt. After one week with new experiences and impressions, the world championship ends for the 300 teams from over 50 nations on Saturday with a spectacular award ceremony.
In addition to the world championship of bodypainting artists, the World Bodypainting Festival is the largest music festival in the south of Austria. National and international musicians provide the best entertainment on the main and smaller side stages. The colorful program will be complemented by the Bodypainting and Make-up Fair, where colors, accessories and make-up can be tested and bought.
The Festival Pass includes all concerts and shows from July 12-14 2018 and is available for 49 € (discounted price). Day tickets can be purchased for 21 €.
