Brixen Water Light Festival

03 - 21 May 2023

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?

Local and international artists 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.

The Brixen Water Light Festival takes place annually in May. The idea for the festival was born in 2015 after the premiere of the light and music show at the Hofburg in Brixen. The first edition of the festival was held in May 2017.

More details for the edition of 2023 following soon...

Artists from all over the world are reinterpreting the cultural trasures and water sites of Brixen through light and art installations. Sometimes with depth, sometime dreamy and atmospheric, romantic, yet amusing.

The Brixen Water Light Festival does not want to be a completed idea, it is a creative project that was pragmatically conceived by omitting some aspects and with a great potential of development for the future.
