The Llum BCN festival, held for the third year in the Poblenou quarter, is a circuit of luminous installations in which art and technology meet. For three nights Llum BCN will transform the urban landscape of Poblenou. Large buildings of last generation, chimneys of old factories, industrial buildings and some plots will change thanks to the expressive capacity of light. And it's not just about something aesthetic, beautiful. This festival is conceived as a great laboratory for outdoor experimentation. It shows us the work of artists from around the world who come from different disciplines: art, lighting design and interactive environments, architecture, expanded audiovisual and live arts. These artists explore the possibilities offered by new techniques such as dynamic lighting, interactive environments, large-scale projection, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.. Llum BCN is full of secrets, surprises and images that you will hardly see again.

About the Llum BCN 2022 edition

The previous edition was held last November in a smaller format than usual, but this year, Llum BCN will once again shine brightly. Among the most outstanding international artists that will participate in the 2022 edition of Llum BCN we find Trevor Paglen, Ulf Langheinrich or Tundra, to name a few, who will share experiences and ideas with the best national creators, such as Toni Arola, Mariona Benedito. Antoni Miralda or Jordi Canudas.

Artists who have passed through Llum BCN

In previous editions, Llum BCN has featured key artists, such as Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, United Visual Artists, Luke Jerram, Daniel Canogar and Julio Le Parc.

A distinctive value

What differentiates Llum BCN from other lighting festivals is the commitment to experimentation and innovation of the students of the schools of art, design, lighting and architecture of Barcelona, ​​who participate with several lighting installations.
