Something new and exciting for the island is the Ibiza Light Festival, which takes place in Ibiza Town on the evenings of Friday October 14 and Saturday 15. The 2-day outdoor cultural initiative takes place in the port and La Marina and will see many emblematic places in the area transformed through lighting, video, sound, dance and theatre performances. Starting at 8pm as darkness falls, 16 art installations (some of them interactive) will bring the town to life, as never before.
A number of companies such as Improbable Film, Ledhouse and 3D Light are working with local artists, which is a collaboration from the Ayuntamiento de Eivissa, the Consell Insular de Eivissa, La Asociación de Comerciantes del Puerto-La Marina and La Autoridad Portuaria (port authority).
The festival is celebrated in other European cities such as London, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Berlin, and also in Lyon where it has been organised for over 10 years and attracts 3 million people. The Ayuntamiento de Eivissa and the Consell Insular de Eivissa intends that this will become an annual cultural event and a tourist attraction to bring in visitors to the island at the end of the season.
Many of the installations are continuous throughout the night until midnight, whilst some of the performances are scheduled to take place at set times. There will be a public info point at the beginning of Av. de les Andanes. Plus there’s a route map showing the locations of the 16 pieces with times for specific performances, which is also available on the Facebook page: Ibiza Light Festival
