Amsterdam Light Festival 2016

27 nov - 22 Jan
Amsterdam Light Festival 2016

Experience Amsterdam Light Festival 2016

From December 1st 2016 to January 22nd 2017, the fifth edition of Amsterdam Light Festival takes place. Light works by famous artists and upcoming talents will transform the center of Amsterdam to a celebration of light. The Amsterdam Light Festival, started in 2012, is one of the most popular light festivals in Europe. Dozens of works and installations by international artists, designers and architects will participate in this year's festival. The works can be seen in two ways: with Amsterdam Light Festival cruise (Watercolors) or by means of a walk, the Illuminade.

Unforgettable light festival in Amsterdam

Projections on historic buildings, installations in the streets and on the squares and many interactive works; anything goes at the Amsterdam Light Festival. Unique in Amsterdam Light Festival is the public-private partnership. Both municipal, business and different creative sectors are involved in the organization of the event. There is no place today where historic downtown and technology come as close together as in Amsterdam Light Festival.

8 Reasons to visit Amsterdam Light Festival 2016

Not convinced of the Amsterdam Light Festival by the information above? We like to give you the final push by summing up eight reasons for visiting this year’s Amsterdam Light Festival

#1: More applications than ever

For this anniversary edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival, more artists enrolled than in earlier editions. Over 500 works from 46 countries registered for the event. The jury had the difficult task to select the actual participants of the festival.

#2: Second most popular free festival

With no less than 730 thousand visitors at the last edition, Amsterdam Light Festival is on the second place when it comes to popular free festivals in the Netherlands! If you have never been to the Amsterdam Light Festival, then it is an absolute must. Only the Nijmegen Marches parties annually attract more visitors.

#3: See the works of leading architects

The fifth edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival visitors can admire light works by some great architects. The leading Dutch agencies UNStudio and Benthem Crouwel Architects participate for example. Besides that, it is even possible to see light projects from America (Choi + Shine Architects) and even from Singapore (DP Architects).

#4: Only European light festival by boat

Nowhere else in Europe you will find light festivals that can be admired from the water. A cruise through the canals of Amsterdam at the Amsterdam Light Festival is a very special experience. Book your tickets for Amsterdam Light Festival tour and experience the art of light near the water!

#5: Beautiful canal cruise: ‘A view on Amsterdam’

This year’s slogan of the Watercolors canal cruise is "A view on Amsterdam”. Artists are encouraged to give a new look at Amsterdam, its architecture, and the future role on the world stage. Each artist interprets the theme in a unique way, sometimes historic, futuristic or with a good dose of humor and irony. The results are discovered best with the Amsterdam Light Festival cruise.

#6: The most beautiful hike of the year: Biomimicry

The Illuminade walk this year has the theme of biomimicry. Biomimicry is the science that applies ideas from nature to solve problems. Biomimicry is not something of the past few years, for many centuries we get our inspiration from nature. However, an increasing number of disciplines consciously use biomimicry. Translating biomimicry into concrete objects is difficult, so one can imagine how hard it is to design a light sculpture concerning biomimicry. Nevertheless, the artists have succeeded.

#7: Over 35 light sculptures!

The Amsterdam Light Festival is growing. This year there are more than 35 light works present in the city center of Amsterdam. The interactive art works probably are the most unique, sometimes it is even possible to walk through these light artworks. Make a walking route yourself along the most impressive works, or take a canal tour during Amsterdam Light Festival to have a closer look at the works.

#8: New: One light work chosen by primary school children

It wasn’t only organization that was very busy with determining which of the 500 entries may actually participate in the festival. For the first time a children jury was launched, they come up with what they would like to see in their city. One of the light artworks in this way was chosen on behalf of all primary schools in Amsterdam!

Make sure you don’t miss this unique event, pick a date and enjoy the Amsterdam city like never before. Learn more about Amsterdam Light Festival? Than have a look at the official website of Amsterdam Light Festival.
