The Ghent Light Festival creates a path through the city with light, video mapping, and light art. The festival builds on the existing lighting master plan, the city’s water canals, and the urban context. Creativity, innovation, cooperation, and sustainability drive the development of this project. The festival also aligns with other city events, such as when Ghent was declared a “UNESCO Creative City of Music.” The 2021 edition featured 36 stunning works of light art.

Dates of the previous/upcoming edition: 31 January – 04 February 2024
