Description

Celebrating the human body in full color, the World Bodypainting Festival has become the biggest art event of its kind since its founding in 1998. Thousands of visitors gather in Seeboden, surrounded by idyllic mountains and lakes, to admire the stunning artwork and equally captivating nude "canvases". The festival begins with the WBF Academy offering body art workshops for artists looking to hone their skills. The main days of the festival are from Friday to Sunday in the “Bodypaint City”. Artists from 40 nations worldwide start painting in the public park at 11am and later in the day the artwork is judged by a professional jury. The World Awards are given in 4 main bodypainting categories - Brush/Sponge - Airbrush - Special effects - UV effects In addition to art, the days are filled with lots of music and shows. But the hottest ticket in town is the BodyCircus fantasy ball. Guests arrive to the medieval Sommeregg castle in full fantasy costumes combined with bodypainting, decoration and masks and extreme make up. International Dj's keep the stone walls thumping on 3 levels complete with visuals, costume prizes, percussion, shows and entertainment until the early morning hours. It's the perfect end to an unforgettable feast of the eyes.
