Holi festival of colours

A dance music festival that’s colourful in every sense of the word

Holi Farbenfest

The Hindu spring festival of Holi, the festival of colours, with its multicoloured revellers has become a familiar sight. This popular festival has even found a home in Jena, not far from the city centre, where it draws large crowds of exuberant people. The venue on Schleichersee lake offers a perfect location for a party where dancers can express their feelings with the aid of bold, vivid colours.

This is how it works:

The colours (coloured water and coloured powder) are thrown up into the sky as the atmosphere becomes electric, and then everyone dives into a sea of hues, in a heady rush of colours accompanied by some fantastic dance music.

The Holi festival of colours originated in India, where it is celebrated once a year. It is one of the country’s most important and most sacred festivals, lasting several days. As a reminder that everyone is equal, people throw colourful powder into the air and in doing so break down social barriers.
