Fantasy and reality merged into one at OrbitFest, the freely accessible futuristic winter light festival.
The fourth edition of the festival in the city centre of Groningen took place between the 15th and 17th of December 2017.
From admiring light to making it yourself
Last year’s theme of the festival was ’Heliopolis, City of the Future’. From 15 to 17 December between 15:00-22:00 visitors experienced the Groningen of the future with an expo of extraordinary lighting works along with experiments in the winter lab, flash talks and workshops. OrbitFest is a ColorC production, a foundation bringing northern art and society closer together.
