Amsterdam Light Festival 2018-2019

From 29 November 2018 until 20 January 2019, the 7th edition of Amsterdam Light Festival takes
place. During this annual light art festival over 30 artworks and installations by (international) artists,
designers and architects light up the inner city of Amsterdam. Once again Amsterdam Boothuur will guide you by boat along the artworks.

The Medium is the Message

Every year the festival throws a new light on the city. This year the artists were inspired by the theme ‘The Medium is the Message’. The idea behind this famous quote by Canadian scientist Marshall McLuhan was simple: not only the message in itself is important, but also the way we send it out. Light as a message plays an important role in various ways.

Luxury saloon boat

During Amsterdam Light Festival, Amsterdam Boattour will take you along all the artworks in a luxury saloon boat. Would you like to know more about the saloon boats or use a saloon boat for another occasion? Read more on our page about the saloon boats.
