Llum BCN returns on February 2nd to 4th, 2024. Llum BCN comes back to the streets of Barcelona this February. El Poblenou will be the main stage for this internationally renowned festival, one of the most anticipated events on the city’s cultural calendar.

Website: Llum Barcelona 2024 Information 


Llum BCN is a grand laboratory of the nighttime landscape, featuring artists with established careers on the international scene. For three nights, the festival will bring together creative explorers from various disciplines: art, lighting and interactive environment design, architecture, expanded audiovisuals, and performing arts. Beyond its festive nature and being a spectacular ephemeral show, Llum BCN is conceived as an opportunity to ask questions, challenge our preconceived notions of urban space, and create new models of participation and coexistence in public spaces.

Poblenou transforms once again into a large open-air experimentation lab, using light as a creative medium and the work of artists, designers, and architects from around the world exploring possibilities offered by new techniques such as dynamic lighting, large-scale projection, and interactive environments in urban spaces.

It’s a way to discover the city in a different light and also serves as a reflection on where and how the language of public space can evolve in the future. 


As Barcelona gets dark, it lights up, transforming its buildings, squares, courtyards, and unique corners to tell us new stories with the power of light. With the participation of emerging artists, you can enjoy a leading light festival.

Every year, we’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Llum Barcelona, and we highly recommend it. It’s worth going early to find parking and plan the circuit of spaces to visit. There are different schedules, although light shows are usually repeated.

Keep in mind that some buildings and spaces may be very crowded, so if you’re going with children, it’s advisable to keep an eye on them, and depending on where you go with strollers, you might encounter a bit of a hassle.

Still, we highly recommend the experience. Stroll, enjoy, experiment, and be amazed by the light, music, and color installations.


It’s advisable to plan your visit; on the website, you can check the map with all the spaces featuring a light show or installation.

Each edition of Llum BCN is a great civic celebration. It’s also a collective experiment of perception and participation, an urban laboratory where we explore how we could contemplate and inhabit our shared territory—the city—from new and unprecedented perspectives.
