The Festival has been part of the local festival scene for 20 years now and is the biggest art and music festival of Carinthia, the southernmost federal state of Austria. 2017 was the first year in our new location – Klagenfurt am Wörthersee. The heart of the festival was the world championship on the 3 main days – Friday 28th – Sunday 30th – with competing artists from over 54 nations in various categories, trying to impress the festival visitors and the jury with their unique and outstandingly creative designs. The WB-Production Team was 9 month bussy and can now look back on a fantastic and successful anniversary. We are now busy already with the next edition and want to connect even more with cultural departments and various art groups in the city of Klagenfurt.

Another highlight was the “Bodypainting Trophy” within the Beauty Forum series in Germany. WB Production established this important program for the trade show already in 2010. Fabulous artists’ works and unforgettable performances made this month exceptional.
