Bright Brussels Festival of Light
From 14 to 17 February, the ‘Bright Brussels Festival’ will once again illuminate the historic centre of our capital.
For four days, several iconic locations in Brussels, including the Vismet (Brussels' fish market), the Beguinage, the Dansaert district and the Saint-Géry district, will be even more in the spotlight. This is thanks to a trail of ten artistic and interactive light installations. You can discover these national and international works of art on your own, or together with a professional guide from the organisation Vizit.
‘Last year, the festival attracted 120,000 visitors. This year, we aim to do even better. For this edition, we are doing even more to increase visitor's safety along the trail. Several streets in the centre will be reserved exclusively for pedestrians,’ says Brussels Minister of Mobility and Public Works, Pascal Smet. This means that visitors can enjoy the spectacle undisturbed.
This edition includes an installation by Romain Tardy, which can be admired in an extraordinary location: the Citroën garage at Yser. Yannick Jacquet will be presented by Les Garages Numériques at the Halles Saint Géry, featuring a 10m vertical canvas showing videos with audio.
This year, there is yet another reason to visit the festival. Visitors may access the temporary exhibitions in KANAL – Centre Pompidou for just five euros when presenting their Bright Brussels brochure, available from info points.
