World Bodypainting Festival
7/5/2013 - 7/7/2013Description
WBF ART // The World Bodypainting Festival is the World Championship in different body art categories and the biggest event of this art form. Every year, the World Awards are held and 30.000 visitors are attracted by the artwork. Artists from more than 40 nations compete for the World Champion titles in categories brush/sponge, airbrush, special effects, UV effects, facepainting and some special awards. The peninsula of Pörtschach becomes “Bodypaint City”, a fantastic scenery for the living artwork presented in spectacular shows. Bodypaint City has more to offer than a “Living Art Studio”.
Art, music, fashion and shows are the main focus of the festival program.
WBF Music // Painted bodies are choreographically replanted into a scenery with the help of music. Each year, the festival connects musicians like national and international bands, DJs and singers from all around the world. Concerts of superstars such as in the past Aura Dione, Shaggy, Culcha Candela, Pierre Sarkozy or Patrick Nuo take the visitors on a journey into a colourful world and provide an amazing framework program for the World Championships.
Not to be forgotten is the strong DJ community behind the festival. The well-known radio station ForceFM from London travels to the festival with a whole crew since many years already. Whether reggae, pop, electro or funk – the festival satisfies all tastes of music.
WBF Fashion // Fashion is an integral part of the World Bodypainting Festival. Fashion workshops, fashion shows, the Haute Couture Award, the Fashion Park – a big variety of program highlights are offered for fashion fans.
