For the fifth time, the Flemish city of Ghent is organising a festival of light from 27 to 31 January 2021. During this period the city will become a stage for international renowned light artists. During the long winter nights, visitors can look forward to spectacular installations, exciting light shows and magnificent performances on a 6.5 km long course. Buildings, waterways and parks will be wrapped in fascinating colour combinations.
The festival will not exclusively select places in the historic old town as backdrop. For example, this time, the industrial history of Ghent will also be featured as a venue. Following the success of previous years, the organisers decided in 2018, to add a fifth night to the programme of events.
