Ghent will blaze with light for the third time at the Light Festival from January 29th until February 1st 2015. The long-awaited third edition of this festival will run for four days with a festival route even longer than last time, along which you can see all kinds of light sculptures, spectacular projects and installations by contemporary national and international artists. Students will demonstrate experiments with light and Ghent University has created an interactive route with scientific light installations in the UFO building. Enjoy the walk and experience the surprising variety of light creations.
Deputy-mayor for Culture, Tourism and Events Annelies Storms: “I want to bring more art and culture to the streets, not just in the summer but during the winter too. Through the different light sculptures, spectacular projections and installations, the Light Festival fills everyone with wonder.”
