2016 Program

For four days, the Festival of Lights brings together artists from over twenty-five different fields who transform the City of Lyon with light. They highlight the metropolitan architectural heritage and bring squares and gardens to life with innovative lighting creations.

After a turbulent November, the Festival of Lights was turned into a one-evening tribute on December 8 to the victims of terrorist attacks in Paris and Saint-Denis. This year, the event will be held in the customary way from December 8 to 11.

Since most of the 2015 program was postponed, a certain number of adjustments in terms of creations and installations are being studied. We will publish further information on our website starting in March 2016.
