Brixen Water Light Festival

29 April - 22 May 2022

Art, light and water and a head full of dreams and thoughts. Being free and letting oneself fall, floating on the surface of the water, submerging, and carrying the light within. Being critical and playful, a rollercoaster of emotions. Screaming, standing still, having fun, seeing the world. And figure it out?

The Brixen Water Light Festival © powered by Durst will take place from the 29th of April until the 22nd of May 2022. On the 4th edition, the festival will be extended with installations also in the near areas of Franzensfeste/Fortezza, Ratschings/Racines and Neustift/Novacella. Local and international artists will transform various water locations into a sea of light by showing their creative ideas and installations. Reflections on ecological, economic and social aspects around the theme of water form the basis of the artistic work. More than 20 fountains, the confluence of the Eisack and Rienz rivers and other cultural-historical treasures are reinterpreted and highlighted with various works of light and art.

Under the motto "Water is life - light is art", an art trail is being created in Brixen's old town. The various works of art are connected by a 3.2 km long blue line. Follow the line and let it guide you through the festival.

Under the motto "Water is life - light is art", a unique atmosphere is created that enables a new experience of these water places. Durst, as the main sponsor of this year's festival, stands for the innovative strength and responsible entrepreneurship in the city of Brixen. As a leading manufacturer of digital printing and production technologies, Durst sets impulses for sustainable, water- and energy-saving production in many industries worldwide.

Brixen Water Light Festival © powered by Durst leads you as far as you allow yourself to drift, in the whirlpool of life, in the non-observance of reality.
