The Brixen Water Light Festival powered by Durst suspends the 2020 edition, rescheduling the event to May 2021.
In light of the extraordinary challenges we are facing and the unknown timeline as a result of this ongoing public health emergency, the organisers of the Water Light Festival decided that the cancellation of this year’s edition is necessary.
The Brixen Water Light Festival powered by durst celebrates this year its fourth edition and takes place from 8th to 31st May 2020 in Brixen/ South Tyrol. On the fourth edition, the festival is extended with installations also in Franzensfeste, Klausen and Neustift. Local as well as international artists will transform the water sites of Brixen and surrounding area into a unique light ocean through creative ideas and different light installations.
Reflections on ecological, economic and social aspects related to water are the basis of all artistic considerations. The light and contemporary artists will put a new spin on more than 20 fountains and set in scene the impressive confluence of the two rivers Eisack and Rienz and numerous historic and cultural treasures with different light and artwork installations. Under the motto "Water is life - light is art", a unique atmosphere is created in Brixen, Franzensfeste, Klausen and Neustift which enables a completely new perception of the old town and its water locations.
