Edition #10

Amsterdam Light Festival celebrates its tenth anniversary this year! During this special edition we reflect on ten years of light art, with the most appealing, inspiring and popular artworks of the past nine editions making a come back on the canals of Amsterdam.


Celebrate Light is the central theme of Edition #10. After being greatly missed last year, the water route will be back from 02.12.2021 until 23.01.2022! About twenty light artworks will be placed alongside the route. The works are a selection from our rich collection of light art, established over the past nine years. Each artwork naturally has its own meaning, however, there are many common themes and stories to be shared.

We celebrate 10 years of Amsterdam Light Festival together with the visitors and inhabitants of Amsterdam. That' why we've asked the public to vote for their favourite light artworks of the past nine years. The artworks that received the most votes can be found below and will be part of the festival route! Besides, we will highlight several social issues, such as loneliness and child poverty, to remind ourselves that not everyone is able particialte in the celebrations.
