Illuminated Entertainment to Make a Festival of Lights Shine Even Brighter

Illuminated Entertainment to Make a Festival of Lights Shine Even Brighter

Host a Festival Of Lights and immerse your guests in illuminated entertainment.


This time of year sees a transition between sun-kissed summer events and festive Christmas celebrations. Shorter days and longer nights present the perfect opportunity for illuminated events and destinations all over Europe host a festival of lights in their streets and city squares. 

Czech Republic, Sweden, Portugal and Berlin have already hosted theirs and there are many more yet to come. The Amsterdam Light Festival runs from the end November to the end of January, The French Fête des Lumières in Lyon runs for four days in December, Belgium’s Licht Festival in Ghent takes place in early February and Lux in Helsinki takes place in January.

These fascinating illuminated events attract people from all over the world as they immerse themselves amongst innovative site specific light installations, unique works of art, building projections, laser shows, light parades and much more. Why not consider hosting your own mini lights festival to create a wow-factor event that guests will fall in love with? We have the perfect entertainment to make a festival of lights and below are some examples of how you could create one of these exciting illuminated events. 


Illuminated Decor to Transform Your Venue



Almost any AV supplier can provide you with mood lighting and lighting effects but it’s the finishing touches like the Interactive Magic Forest that transform the event into an immersive experience like no other. This option is a light art installation and sensory experience with colourful lighting and sounds. A completely unique interactive feature like the magic forest will become the talking point of your lights festival. 

The Live Light Painter Booth can nestle itself into your event offering your guests a one-of-kind photo opportunity. Working similarly to a photo booth, the light painter takes 15-30 seconds to paint around guests with his torch and snap a completely unique photo.


Walkabout LED Acts Make Your Lights Festival Come To Life



We’re lucky to have just about every kind of LED walkabout act under the stars but if you’re looking for roaming illuminated entertainment to make a festival of lights shine above the rest you’ll need something visually captivating. Something like a photo opportunity that guests will want to snap and share with the rest of the world.


The stunning Illuminated Origami Dancers is one of those head turning acts. Dressed in completely unique costumes, they are able to walk around a perform short dance routines. Alternatively, the Walkabout Neon Pop Art Duo use neon paints and UV lighting in their umbrellas to illuminate their incredible Pop Art inspired costumes.


Projection Mapping takes the entertainment to a whole new level of excitement



Projection mapping comes in many shapes and forms and will help captivate your audience with utterly amazing and fully customisable visuals projected either onto a screen or a site specific location such as a building where the visuals are entirely tailored to the structure of the facade. Video Mapping Italy specialise in the latter and have in fact featured at the Circle of Light Festival in Moscow.  The 3D Tree Image Projection Show offers a more unique take on the concept by transforming surrounding trees into illuminated works of art.


Light based stage shows



Your festival of lights wouldn’t be complete without a thrilling stage performance as the pinnacle of your event. Our Video Mapping Dance Show combines high energy dance choreographies with top of the range visuals on a giant LED screen. For an all-together futuristic musical experience, the Laser Harp Opera Show is an innovative musical show featuring the only laser harp playing opera singer in the whole world.
