Amsterdam Light FestivalDecember 1, 2016-January 22, 2017 | 5th edition
Amsterdam is transformed every year into a true city of lights with the help of contemporary (inter)national light artists. During this annual festival for young and old, both the residents of Amsterdam and the city's many visitors are treated to a spectacle of light. At the same time, the festival offers talented (young) light artists a platform to present their latest work.
