Klagenfurt is an international established event location that will allow the festival to flourish and develop for many years. The picturesque historical theater buildings, art house and city gallery, will all serve as a great backdrop for the festival, WB Academy program and the side events. The open air park “Bodypaint City”, will house the festival main events, turning into a unique and vivid art experience.  This will allow visitors to look over the shoulders of artists at work, while experiencing art, music and various shows. The Powder Group and On Makeup Magazine are proud to be sponsors of this event. Get more details about the World Bodypainting Festival 2017 at www.bodypainting-festival.com
