The first music program highlights 2017

The new location in Klagenfurt on Lake Wörthersee offers the World Bodypainting Festival completely new opportunities for exploration. The art is in the focus and mixes up with the content of the cultural center of the city - from the Künstlerhaus (artist's house) to the Citygallery, from the state theater to the Alpe Adria Gallery. Many details, such as the free public bus network of the STW for festival visitors or free accesses with ticket holders to the galleries will be published soon.

BUT we have also packed a lot of music highlights. Pretty perfect fitting to the World Bodypainting Festival are "Alle Farben" means "All Colours" from Berlin and "257". But there is soooo much more to come!
