Eindhoven will again experience its name as a city of lights in the coming week. On Saturday night, the start of the annual GLOW Light Festival takes place at Philips in Eindhoven, an event that combines art, technology, design and light.
Mayor of John Jorritsma from Eindhoven opens the festival that was held for the first time in 2006. After opening the light, "GAME: ON" is displayed. Theme Glow 2018 is Shadows & Light, after song Joni Mitchell.
For the first time, the festival organizes a photo contest at Instagram. Light Artwork & # 39; Something Blue & # 39; Kari Kola at the Pullman Eindhoven Cocagne hotel will be visible up to 2 kilometers and 20 kilometers from Eindhoven. The most spectacular photo of the most unusual location & # 39; where you can see 'Something Blue' & # 39; will probably win the prize.
Just like in previous years, a 5 km long hiking trail in the center of the city is carrying 35 light art projects from artists from the Netherlands and abroad. Last year, a free access event attracted 740,000 visitors to Eindhoven.
