Celebrating 10 years of the Ghent Light Festival

The Ghent Light Festival celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2021 by bringing back some of its most populat light art installations over the years.


Every three years, the Ghent Light Festival has illuminated the city of Ghent in Belgium with artworks by national and international light artists.


Taking place on 10-14 November, the 2021 edition of the festival celebrated its 10-year anniversary by bringing back four of the public’s favourite light art installations from past editions.


In addition to 32 new light art installations by renowned as well as up-and-coming international artists, this special edition of the festival also featured four of the public’s favourites that made an impression during past editions.


The four artworks – The big fire of Ghent that never happened (2011), La Cattedrale di Luce (2012), Cloud (2015) en Museum of the moon (2018) – returned in a slightly changed form to surprise the public again.


This year’s edition also featured a new festival route, taking visitors through the city and – literally and figuratively – sheding a different light on various historical buildings, districts, waterways and historical heritage.
