GLOW Eindhoven looks back on a successful and crowded light festival
Many people visited the eleventh edition of the international light festival GLOW Eindhoven in the city centre as well as at the University of Technology campus. Thanks to the dry weather during the last weekend, the festival again drew a record number of 740,000 visitors.
GLOW reveals permanent light art projects
During this eleventh GLOW edition, three new light artworks will be revealed which will permanently stay in Eindhoven. By doing so, Eindhoven wishes to inspire its visitors on an ongoing basis.
Pick a route
Every route takes approximately 2 to 2.5 hours. It might be practical to make a choice beforehand which route you are going to take, the City Route or the Science Route.
New: GLOW Food Courts
This year, you’ll find five food courts along the GLOW Route instead of one GLOWCafé. Inspiring and surprising bars & restaurants which fit the GLOW vibe and serve as starting points of the GLOW Route. Last year, we already had a successful try-out at Stadhuisplein with Pop-Up Restaurant LUCE.
GLOW Route 2016
This year, GLOW has a route, consisting of a loop of 3.5 kilometres across the University of Technology area and a loop of 4.2 kilometres through the city centre of Eindhoven.
2nd Edition GLOW Run
Again this year, light festival GLOW ends with the GLOW Run. The GLOW Run is a fun run, during which thousands of runners run a 5.5 kilometres track along the beautiful GLOW light artworks.
GLOW Opening Show
The official GLOW opening will be on the Stadhuisplein on Saturday 7 November at 18:30 hours.
Magical GLOW Train Experience
In honour of the 10th anniversary of GLOW, the NS (Dutch Railway) has organised the GLOW Train Experience, in co-operation with GLOW and a team of young artists. Thus, fun already starts on your train trip towards GLOW.
Vincent van Gogh at GLOW
Two of the major light projects on the GLOW route are inspired by the work of the painter Vincent van Gogh.
