GLOW Light Art Festival 2015
7 – 14th November, 2015.
Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Update 6th November.
Tonight there was a private viewing of all the installations with the artists present so that we could hear first hand the inspiration behind each work. Your humble editor was invited to this special tour. It was amazing and the best show I’ve seen for a long time. More pictures will follow.
For eight days in November, the city of Eindhoven will be all about ‘Light Arts‘ again and this year GLOW will have its 10th anniversary, focusing on magnificent light projects evolving around the theme of Nature & Architecture. This theme will show the true essence of light. But there are more new things to look forward to:
GLOW NEXT – ABOUT LIGHT
The theme of GLOW Next is called “About Light”, where new projects are based on experiments which are shown for the very first time and which get a platform offered by GLOW. Eindhoven is a pioneering city and a breeding ground for creative, artistic and technical talent. Engineers, designers, scientists and artists work, among others, on innovative light concepts, new techniques and insights regarding light. Light and energy saving, light and emotion, light and health, LED-lighting: they are all current topics. And these will be exhibited at Strijp-S during GLOW NEXT, the testing ground of GLOW with light projects created by local talents. GLOW NEXT has the ambition to eventually develop into a trendsetting and ground-breaking international light lab.
This year, we introduce a wider range of GLOW Specials and Side Events. GLOW projects with an extra asset! Please keep in mind that you will need an entrance ticket for most of these projects. These Specials will definitely add an extra dimension to your GLOW visit.
We are very proud to introduce our new GLOW app. The App has everything you need to experience GLOW 2015 at its best. Fantastic new feature: download our GLOW audiotour (Dutch and English versions).

Last week I was treated to a sneak preview of this years event and all the light/art installations. It is going to be fantastic! There will also be walking dinners, dinner in the dark and other side events. If you are in the Netherlands during this time, make an effort to visit. You won’t be disappointed.
