The Winter Lights Festival

Those long winter days of darkness in Reykjavík are set to be illuminated magnificently at the city’s next annual Winter Lights Festival. The Winter Lights Festival held February 6-15, 2014, promises a superb collection of sparkling events, all delivered with our customary commitment to quality and diversity.

The main objective of the festival is to illuminate the dramatic darkness of winter with a collection of sparkling events, which both celebrate and emphasize the beauty of Reykjavík City. To accentuate further the extraordinary contrasts of light presented during winter, a number of quality light-art installations will be exhibited, illuminating spectacularly some of the city’s most prominent buildings and public spaces, consequently enabling festival guests to experience the city from a new and exciting perspective.

Core events of the upcoming Winter Lights Festival include a number of selected light-art commissions together with our popular theme nights: Museum Night and Pool Night.
