Amsterdam Light Festival

About This Project

December 1st, 2022 – January 22nd, 2023
Amsterdam, The Netherlands





Amsterdam Light Festival is an annual light art festival in the city center of Amsterdam. Light art is a relatively young art form that experiences a great growth because of the LED revolution. Light is a versatile and highly visual ‘material’ that can be used both abstract and figurative. Both forms are reflected in the artworks of the festival.


Amsterdam Light Festival offers a stage to light artist from all over the world by presenting their work in the city for two months. The festival stimulates these artists to push their own boundaries. Through a worldwide distributed Call for Concepts they submit groundbreaking concepts. A jury selects the artworks that will become part of the festival.


The festival will dazzle Amsterdam residents and visitors for the eleventh year in a row with a route made up of 20–30 works of (international) art. Get to know the artworks, artists, and festival theme in-depth with one of our cruise or walk excursions this winter.


“Imagine Beyond” serves as the topic for Edition #11. We’ll search for optimism, creativity, and miracles. The ultimate method and messenger of things we cannot (or do not want to) describe, light has the singular ability to be both tangible and ethereal at the same time. Light art gives us space to consider the interaction of mysterious powers and appearances, both inside and outside our world. In the upcoming months, the subject will be developed further and influenced by the artworks and the route.


Celebrate Light

The light art pieces can be seen in the city center every day from 17:00 to 23:00 (on New Year’s Eve, till 20:00) for more than 50 days in December and the first few weeks of January. Take a boat or walk through the festival, and use the (audio) tour to discover everything there is to know about the artworks and artists.
