This year, over 40 installations will be lighting up Lyon’s roads during the Festival of Lights. To plan your visit and to ensure you don’t miss anything, you can start right now creating your selection of installations on the website or mobile app. You can access your account with just a few clicks and make your choice via the "Add to my selection” button when you scroll down the page of a light installation.

If you’ve made a selection in previous years, you can still access your account and delete the old installations.

Then share your 2016 programme with your family and / or friends and on social networks!

You can also personalise the Festival of Lights by changing the visual!
