Featuring three routes (Royal, European and Schaerbeek), each includes immersive and poetic works by national and international artists. On top of new and original installations, the festival’s extension into Schaerbeek provides more opportunities for visitors to enjoy the lights.

“Schaerbeek has a long tradition of illuminated festivities, thanks to the Citizen Light Festival,” said Cécile Jodogne, mayor, Schaerbeek. “It was, therefore, natural for it to join forces with the region’s Bright Festival initiative and promote Schaerbeek beyond its borders. The commune also has a rich Art Nouveau heritage. This event is an opportunity to showcase this heritage and I am sure it will leave the public with stars in their eyes.”

More details on the festival’s programming will be released here in the coming weeks.
