Amsterdam Light Festival

The amazing Amsterdam Light Festival 2023 - 2024 starts on 30 November! For the 12th edition of the Festival of Light in Amsterdam new light art has been selected. The Amsterdam Light Festival water route is back again this year and takes you through the canals, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, of the city.

The theme of this year's Amsterdam Light Festival artworks is LOADING…Revealing ART, AI and Tech. With this theme, the festival asks you to think about how technology and artificial intelligence affect society. Already, they influence how we communicate, socialise and create, and their use is growing every day. Sail with us to see the different light artworks, look through the windows and ponder how you feel about technology and AI.
