At 21.00 the gates to the castle courtyard will open. Here ́s goes on with a real firework on the live stage: directly under the 1.000-year-old lime tree, the “Stockhiatla” fire their mood fireworks of the best quality again. In the venerable and well-tempered walls of the almost 700-year-old castle, ́s is then also hot: DJ James Munich and “the one and only” Tamara Mascare from Vienna provide the atmosphere at the turntables until the early hours of the morning. The “Pink Lake Clubnight” on Friday 23 August at 9 p.m. in the “FABRIK” has developed into another definite highlight among the guests. The disused factory building with all its cogwheels, machine parts and blast furnaces offers the ideal location for a cult and exuberant club night. “Dance All Night” is the motto and so “Tamara Mascara & Friends” will play fierily on the dance floors and make the factory halls glow until the early hours of the morning. A free shuttle bus brings the guests from 20:30 to the FABRIK, which is only 4 km away from Pörtschach, and then commutes the whole night.


For many guests, the absolute highlight of the PINK LAKE Festival has been the “Boat Cruise Party” on the turquoise waters of Lake Wörthersee for years. On Saturday the 24th of August it will be “All aboard” for all guests in Pörtschach from 19:00. Due to the great demand, three ships from the fleet of the Wörthersee-Schifffahrt will set sail again this year. Due to the spectacular tying up, the three ships will become the largest dance floor on the lake in the course of the evening and make the Boat Cruise-Party a truly unique party event in the community.


The Beach Club is also an absolute top visitor attraction at the festival: every day from Thursday to Sunday, the flower island (peninsula off Pörtschach) becomes “Pink Island”. The lush green sunbathing lawn, the turquoise blue water, chilled loungers, snacks & drinks, the gentle lounge sound of our DJ ́s and of course the popular beach games with Mataina make the Beach Club the perfect location to relax between the parties. For fun and variety, they offer water sports such as wakeboard or Aqua-Tubes.
