More Information on Amsterdam Light Festival

From 28 November 2019 until 19 January 2020, the 8th edition of Amsterdam Light Festival takes place. During this annual light art festival over 30 artworks and installations by (international) artists, designers and architects light up the city of Amsterdam.


Every year the festival throws a new light on the city. This year the artists were inspired by the theme ‘DISRUPT’. The 21 artists interpreted the theme in a variety of ways. While some installations form playful interventions in the city streets, other artists transform the city’s existing architecture with their light artworks to give you a fresh look at your surroundings.  

The festival can be admired by boat, bike and on foot. During the festival period, the artworks are switched on daily from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. (during New Year’s Eve until 8 p.m.).
