Theme Amsterdam Light Festival 2020 – 2021: When Nature Calls

It’s clear that Mother Nature has called us out in the past months. With the outbreak of the coronavirus, our society has come to a complete stop and we cannot help to stop and reflect on life around us. How could this have happened? How do we deal with nature, with animals, with plants? What can or must be done differently? The relationship between humans and nature is on edge, and it’s time to take a closer look with Edition #9: ‘When Nature Calls’.

Organizing a festival in times of a pandemic can’t be done alone. We’ve worked with social partners, scientists, primary school students, neighbors, and artists to introduce a new experience. This year you will discover the light artworks with the Light Walk. 

Light Walk with mobile phone

You will explore the eastern part of the city center and through WhatsApp, creative director and theatre producer Lucas De Man will send you videos, photos and voice messages taking you on a journey of light art, nature and the city. The walk is interactive, as a visitor you can influence the story. Would you like to dive more into the topic of light art? Send Lucas a message and he will make it happen! Are you interested in history? He will tell you about the surroundings and its history. In this way you’ll discover that nature not only wants to warn us, but she also has a lot of beautiful possiblities and solutions to offer. 

You can walk the Light Walk every evening during the festival from 5.00 to 11.00 p.m (on New year’s Eve until 8 p.m), bring your (charged) smartphone and don’t forget your earphones!


The Light Walk will take place in the open air and will be completely corona-proof. It’s the perfect reason to get out of the house this winter and do something fun together!
