Instead of the summer festival season, which has become unpredictable due to the pandemic, Zsolnay Heritage Management Non-profit Ltd. is going to hold the Zsolnay Light Festival at a safer time. Thus, the first and only light festival in the country will shine in Pécs from 30th September to 3rd October.
The festival, boasting with an impressive line-up, including many foreign performers, impressed as many as 80,000 visitors last time. When making the decision to change the date, the organisers kept the safety of both the artists and the audience in mind.
’However, if the regulations allow, we will not give up the summer festival season itself entirely. Still we consider it safer to start with smaller events and festivals, so there will be a gradual rise in the series of events, and we hope that the Zsolnay Light Festival, which attracts the largest crowd, will be held amidst calmer and safer conditions in the autumn’ said Péter Bleszity, CEO of Zsolnay Heritage Management Non-profit Ltd.
The Zsolnay Light Festival in Pécs offers a unique spectacle not seen anywhere else in Hungary. The best mapping artists in the world will enchant Pécs during the seven-time-awarded, impulsive festival adapting foreign trends. The buildings are going to be clad in a light robe and the streets carpeted with light installations – offering a magical experience as if you were entering a dream world. The four-day festival, which can be visited free of charge, the audience hungry for new experiences can enjoy concerts, contemporary-circus and street-theatre performances as well.
