This year’s festival motto “Creating Tomorrow” intensively illuminates our responsibility for the sustainable preservation of our home planet. The light art installations and video mappings play with this theme in an incredible variety. Inspiring visions are shown and the coming tasks are thematised, such as sustainability, e-mobility, measures for more CO2 neutrality, renewable energies and digitalisation. As always, we are locating the productions in prominent places in Berlin, on landmarks and buildings steeped in history, on squares, on the facades of the participating companies and organisations, as well as in all of Berlin’s districts and many neighbourhoods.
The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS 2021 is a call for more sustainability, more WE feeling, humanity and mindfulness as well as the preservation of cultural diversity.
All illuminations at the approximately 70 locations will light up between 8.21pm and midnight every day from 03rd-12th of September 2021, unless otherwise stated in the program. The currently known festival locations are listed below. Further details on the individual illuminations, times, partners and individual events will be added here gradually.
