Spotlight – Bucharest International Light Festival to kick off on April 21

Having reached its seventh editionthe open-air visual art festival Spotlight has prepared, for the weekend of April 21-23, 2023, a new series of multimedia experiences in established locations and premiere locations on Calea Victoriei and at ARCUB – Gabroveni Inn.

The event that awaits, again this year, over 100,000 participants, Spotlight Festival is a project organized by the Capital City Hall, through ARCUB – the Cultural Centre of the Municipality of Bucharest, together with the Directorate of Culture, Education, Tourism, with the support of MONUMENT for – the General Directorate of Landscape Architecture and Public Forum Monuments.

Since 2023, Spotlight Festival is a member of the largest international network of light festivals – The International Light Festivals Organization, thus connecting Bucharest with the largest cities in the world that host spectacular new media events in the public space.

Among the large three-dimensional installations on display is Neutrino, created by Circus Lumineszenz of Austria, a large-scale reproduction of a subatomic particle that generates an impressive play of light, colour and sound. The spectacular installations of the Talking Heads (Limelight, Hungary) replace facial muscles with over 4,000 LEDs and reproduce a varied range of emotions through light and colour. After travelling to light festivals in Amsterdam, New York, London and Niagara Falls, the Talking Heads stop in George Enescu Square for a lesson in communication without words.

The creators of one of the most photographed installations of last year’s edition, Kaustik, has prepared a new 360-degree visual experience with a Roller Coaster before the National Arts Museum of Romania, where people are invited to walk inside hundreds of LED lights that create a flow of light and recreate the strong sensations of a rollercoaster. Not to be missed is the impressive Construct installation at Kraft Market, also by Kaustik.

The Kretzulescu Park will be populated by giant Lotus flowers (Module, France) that offer the public the experience of a poetic walk in which light blends harmoniously with sound. And the French of Aerosculpture are experimenting with light to create the flowers of a kinetic installation, which can be admired at the Renaissance Memorial in Revolutiei Square.


The Spotlight program starts every day of the festival at 19.30 and ends at 23.00. Details about the program and the installations participating in Spotlight 2023 will be available soon on and
