Edition #11

Get enchanted during Amsterdam Light Festival! In the upcoming edition we delve into the magical character of light with the theme 'In Search of the Miraculous'. Edition #11 takes place from 1 December 2022 until 22 January 2023. Want to stay up-to-date on all festival developments?



During the dark winter months Amsterdam Light Festival transforms the city into a canvas for light art. For the eleventh time in a row we will illuminate residents and visitors of Amsterdam, with a route consisting of 20-30 artworks of (inter)national making. Be enchanted this winter with one of our cruise or walk experiences and get to know everything about the artworks, artists and festival theme.


The theme for Edition #11 is ‘In Search of the Miraculous’. Light has the unique property to be both visible and intangible at the same time – it is the ultimate means and messenger of things we cannot (or do not want to) explain. Light art creates room for us to think about the play of mysterious powers and appearances, both in and outside of this world... The theme will be worked out further in the coming months and will be shaped by the artworks and the route.
