Austria’s body-painting festival is a vibrant cacophony of music, colours and art. And it’s happening this July.
An event that hosts some of the world’s best body-painting artists along with great international bands, this festival is a musical and aesthetic spectacle you can’t afford to miss.

BPF, ‘a fusion of body and beats’, is being held on 3 to 5 July, colouring the streets of Poertschach, Austria. Their lineup features global indie acts like Gentleman, the reggae/dancehall veteran from Germany, Pineapple Express, a live electronic act from Italy, City Lights Calling, an acoustic band homegrown in Austria and many more. Check out the full lineup here.
The WBF is nothing short of fantastic, every year – for a week in Austria, thousands of people witness the creation of ‘living, breathing, and multidimensional art. Bodypainting however, is not the only feature at the festival, throughout the weeklong festival – there are numerous artists playing on stages across the venue, workshops, competitions, and other events taking place that showcase the best use of the human body as a canvas. Beginning in 1998, the festival is now on its 17th year – and promises to be an exciting mix of artistic experimentation, fashion innovation, and musical expression while maintaining, the obvious professional aspect through the “Global Professional Bodypainting Conference” – to share, collaborate, and discuss, as well as showcase the pieces that have been created at the festival.
