Lux Helsinki Light Show Will Light up the City 6 to 10 January

The 10th annual Lux Helsinki light festival takes place from Saturday 6 to Wednesday 10 January 2018. The light installations will be displayed non-stop along the fully accessible route between 5pm and 10pm. The event is free of charge to people of all ages, and it is accessible for persons with reduced mobility.

Lux Helsinki is a five-day light festival in the center of Helsinki that is organised annually at the beginning of January. The festival presents a diverse range of light art along a new route each year that covers a few kilometers. In addition to the most famous buildings in Helsinki, the route also highlights lesser known courtyards and facades. The program features specially commissioned new works and popular installations for international light festivals.

Over half a million visitors come each year to admire the festival, which transforms familiar buildings and spaces into unique works of urban art. The unforgettable experience created by the power and beauty of light attracts people to enjoy this winter festival during the darkest time of the year, even on the coldest nights.
