As day fades to night during the Festes de Santa Eulàlia, the city will light up for the LLUM BCN Festival. This year marks a particularly special occasion as UNESCO celebrates the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies across the globe. The festival, now in its fourth edition, sees 20 innovative light installations and performances transform some of the Ciutat Vella’s most iconic buildings and bring new meaning to patios and public spaces scattered throughout El Gótico.
This magical series of light-based spectacles showcases talented students and teachers from schools of design, lighting, architecture and interior design in Barcelona, in collaboration with the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and the Professional Association of Lighting Designers (APDI), among others.
