Festival of Lights

2015 brandeburger tor morten carlssonSince 2005, the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS turns Berlin annually into a world full of light art. International artists are presenting many glowing light projections, 3D video mappings and light installations and are thereby transporting their messages, themes and contents. These artistic projections on landmarks, monuments, buildings, streets, neighborhoods and places inspire more than two million visitors on site each year and let Berlin shine. Events, tours, incentives and activities around the various “light art” themes, are turning the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Berlin into an extraordinary art work itself.

Festival of LightsThe FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS has developed into a very important tourism magnet and major economic factor for the city of Berlin. With more than two million visitors, 650,000 additional hotel stays and 1.8 billion media contacts, it is one of the most successful public events and largest light festivals in the world.

The combination of live experience with classical and social media makes the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS a unique and vibrant communication platform (offline, online, digital, viral and live).

Festival of LightsThe concept and the brand FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS was developed by Birgit Zander and her agency Zander & Partner Event-Marketing.

The next step is the international expansion of the festival. The aim is to build a global network of light festivals and to make the experience, the synergies as well as the appeal of the brand FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS available for other cities and regions as well as their partners and sponsors.
