Bright Festival 2024 : from 15 until 18 February in Brussels

The unmissable Bright Festival returns from 15 to 18 February to illuminate neighbourhoods in the European capital in the heart of winter. The programme includes two itineraries that run along various emblematic spots of Brussels, magnified by more than 20 different artistic original artworks from near and far. And that's not all! This year, in honour of the Belgian presidency of the Council of the European Union, Europe will be put in the spotlight.

The festival highlights different neighbourhoods through two routes: a royal one and a European one. The theme of Europe in all its forms will be explored through activities and artworks along the European route.
