Lake on Fire (LOF) is a summer open air Stoner Rock festival. Typically taking place in August, the event is annually held in the small village of Waldhausen im Strudengau, in Austria.

Lake on Fire is distinctive for it's floating stage on the Nepomukteich, with the audience on the waterfront and many concert viewers in the water itself. Initially starting as a single-day party with largely local acts, it's expanded into a two day event hosting bands from around the world. Notably the majority proceeds of Lake on Fire are donated to charities, specifically children's aid.
