Amsterdam Light Festival

From 30 November 2017 until 21 January 2018, the sixth edition of Amsterdam Light Festival takes place. This annual light art festival for all ages transforms Amsterdam’s city centre into an open-air light museum.

Art pieces and installations by contemporary (international) artists, designers, and architects lighten up the inner city on and around the canals. For upcoming festival, artists were challenged to work within the theme ‘Existential’. With this theme Amsterdam Light Festival encourages visitors to reflect on what unites people and the role light plays in this. Among the works is a special light object by world-renowned Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei.

As every year, the light artworks of the festival can be admired from both water and land. The water exposition presents a large number of artworks on and around the famous canals, daily switched on from 5pm until 11pm (until 8pm on New Year’s Eve). Various canal cruise companies offer boat routes along these artworks.

For the first time, the land exhibition takes place on the former Marineterrein, from 14 December 2017 until 7 January 2018. The artworks will be switched on from 5pm until 10pm (until 8pm on New Year’s Eve). This part of the festival is within walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station and visitors can explore and admire the artworks on their own initiative.
