The Festival of Light in the Old City will provide, through the use of light, a dramatic and artistic dimension to the Old City’s nights.
From the illumination of architecture to light statues, the festival will be a public and family oriented celebration that artists from different fields will partake in.
In the last three years artists from Israel and from abroad took part in the festival and used light in order to create statues, installations, performances and artwork. During each year, the festival brought 250,000 visitors to the Old City and succeeded in introducing a new trend in Jerusalem nightlife.
The Festival of Light will take place from May 25 until June 2, 2016 in the Old City of Jerusalem. This year the festival has grown and will include ten international artists who will display the best artistic work in the field alongside dozens of performances, tours, artists, sites and more.
