Vilnius’ Light Festival Will Illuminate the Sky

Bedazzled Vilnius invites you to celebrate as it shines brighter than the brightest star on 25 January 2022. Illuminations will show the entire world the way to the Lithuanian capital. The Vilnius Light Festival will serve as an impressive gift for the city’s 699th birthday – streets filled with light installations, revived historical buildings, glowing courtyards and bright urban spaces. 

Light artists greet Vilnius

Lithuanian artists and guests from Europe will celebrate Vilnius on its birthday. The Vilnius Light Festival provides a rare opportunity for all spectators to see light installations in various city spaces. Don’t miss the chance to see unique works created especially for this festival or the works of art visiting Vilnius for a short time before continuing their trip to other festivals around the world. The artists stop you in your tracks using modern technology, taming the darkness and telling new stories. The installations by festival regulars and new participants alike will arouse the imagination while inviting spectators to reflect on their messages and immerse themselves into the installations.
