Around the inner city

GLOW, the dynamic event of international allure attracts more and more visitors, both local and international, every year!

Light art at GLOW

GLOW Eindhoven is a light art festival that provides a platform for artists, designers and architects who are working with light. Illuminated expositions in public spaces that interact with the city view and the audience itself will pop up all around Eindhoven. Every year, around 750.000 visitors come to see the sights. Several artists will be creating bright installations, sculptures, projections and performances.

Eindhoven’s connection to light

GLOW started in 2006 to show Eindhoven's strong connection to light. Symbolically, light stands for innovation and ideas. In the city of Eindhoven, high-standing technology and breathtaking design constantly hit the streets. In a more literal sense, Eindhoven was the home of the Philips light-bulb production plant and many other light-related companies.

The theme of this year's GLOW Light Art Festival

This year's theme is "The Beat", where GLOW is connecting light art to the rhythms that colour and define our existence. You'll be able to see the explorations of all the synonyms of "The Beat" through light art — pulsating, frequency, heartbeat and more. GLOW will also be exploring new techniques and sustainable materials in new original works of light.  

Visit the GLOW route

These light art projects are all connected by a free 5km walking route, starting at the Stationsplein, leading past the Philips Stadium and back to the city centre via the Stadhuisplein. GLOW Eindhoven is happening from 6.30pm until 11pm every evening of the festival. There are also projects in the villages of Geldrop-Mierlo, Oirschot, Best, and Waalre from November 11 to November 18 from 6.30pm until 10.00pm.
