Le Festival de Lumière à Gand suivante aura lieu du 29 Janvier jusqu’au 1 Février 2015 et deviendra un festival triennal.
Les Festivals de lumière de 2011 et 2012 ont été un succès énorme. Chaque édition, prèsque un demi-million de visiteurs ont participé le festival. La troisième édition sera certainement phénoménale.

Starting or ending your Light Festival Walk close to Hotel Astoria

This year the light festival is spread over a bigger area than just our city centre. This means that you can stay at Hotel Astoria and start or finish your light walk at St Pietersplein where you can enjoy the creation Urban Keys from Dirty Monitor.

An impressive video projection embracing the square with music and light. You are invited to move between fiction and reality.

It is the first exhibition that also considers the many different facets of designing with light and establishes a connection with contemporary issues” - Jolanthe Kugler, curator of the exhibition.
