The festival

For the fifth time now, nearly 170 free outdoor and indoor programs, amazing mappings, light installations, street-art productions and concerts await visitors at Zsolnay Light Festival, Hungary's premier light-art attraction! The event, attracting 80,000 visitors in 2019, is held at Sept 30 - Oct 3 this year to offer unforgettable days in downtown Pécs for those who want special light experiences.

Zsolnay Light Festival is the first and only festival of light in the country. At the event, considered unique in Central Europe, after nightfall, the spatial-specific works of light-art of domestic and foreign artists amazes visitors in the cosy streets, squares, inner gardens and church facades of Pécs. Familiar nooks, ancient and modern buildings, green parks and foliage are dressed up in casual light costumes woven of millions of pixels.
