What exactly is a Light Festival?

Light Festivals are a true spectacle of wonder and magic.

The fantastical world of technology & art captures imaginations, inspires collaboration and learning and attracts cultural tourism dollars.

These festivals have exploded across Europe over the last couple of decades & are now attracting audiences of 3,000 – 29,000 per day across the United States.
