The Amsterdam Light Festival is set to return on 28 November 2019, running until 19 January 2020, (literally) putting Amsterdam’s beautiful city centre and its canals in the limelight.
What many people may not know, is that the light art installations of Amsterdam Light Festival are exclusively made for the festival. From an artwork in the masts of the VOC ship ‘de Amsterdam’ to the works that are harnessed above the Herengracht – they were all created with a specific location in mind.
Amsterdam Light Festival strives to create innovative and unique works of art, which is why the festival works together with a host of talented artists, architects and designers. They submitted their trailblazing ideas on account of a worldwide Call for Concepts, after which a carefully curated jury made a selection of the best ideas. These concepts were then realized by Amsterdam Light Festival.
Maybe reserve a spot on a boat to get a tour of the best light route. https://amsterdamlightfestival.com/en/book-a-tour
