First look at the installations planned for Bristol Light Festival 2024

The event attracted 250,000 visitors last year and this year’s has amazing new artwork

Bristol Light Festival will once again bring a stunning combination of light, sound and colour to the heart of Bristol next month.

Three artworks never seen in the South West before will take centre stage at the event, which last year attracted 250,000 visitors.

The fourth iteration of the award-winning festival will take place between Friday 2 - Monday 11 February 2024.

It will welcome two new-to-Bristol installations by Somerset-based partnership, This is Loop, PULSE and Emergence, as well as a second immersive artwork by multidisciplinary art collective, Atelier Sisu, Elysian. 

2024’s Bristol Light Festival will also see the welcome return of the festival’s popular favourite Swing Song, produced by Bristol Light Festival and Tired Industries.

The artwork will take on a new lease of life for the next edition, bringing immersive play ever further to the forefront for guests.

Katherine Jewkes, Creative Director of Bristol Light Festival, said: “We are absolutely over the moon to have some many incredible artists involved with our next edition. This programme is starting to feel really special and is reflective of Bristol’s creative spirit.

"Each year our aim is to bring new and show-stopping artworks to Bristol, creating spaces for people to play, explore and have new experiences. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the Bristol Light Festival and once again fill the city with colour and light.”
