Amsterdam Light Festival is an annual light art festival in Amsterdam. Artists, architects and (light) designers from all over the world bring their light artworks and installations alive during the festival every winter. The artworks are placed alongside two routes. Each route has their own theme, set of artworks and visitor experience. Water Colors, the boat rout, displays big monumental objects and offers visitors the chance to experience the art from a water perspective. Illuminade, the walking route, shows interactive and innovative installations from upcoming designers in the Plantage neighborhood.
Chairman, Amsterdam Light Festival. Six years ago, Felix initiated the Amsterdam Light Festival, a cultural festival of light and water along Amsterdam’s dense network of canals, shining light during the long, dark Dutch winter. The festival has attracted more than a million visitors.
