LUX Light Festival is a free public light festival that turns Wellington’s waterfront and laneways into a captivating celebration of light, art, technology and design.
Bigger and brighter than ever in 2017, LUX will showcase a fantastical array of light sculptures that wind their way through the city.
Five new precincts will feature a broad range of outstanding nationally and internationally recognised artists, designers and architects, alongside an array of activities and performance.
Unique on the world stage will be the all new Te Aō Marama precinct featuring a programme of New Zealand’s leading contemporary Māori light artists and performers. The Playground and Circus precincts will delight the child in everyone, while a feast of street art and fine art will highlight the Urban Edge and Gallery precincts.
As the gateway to winter, LUX invites audiences to bundle up and bask in the glow of Wellington.
Flavour will be added to an explosion of light, colour and sound during the LUX Light Festival this May. LUX Night Bites is sure to be a crowd favourite with a selection of Wellington’s favourite food trucks over two locations in the heart of the LUX Light Festival. Other highlights include the return of Gelissimo’s famed glowing Gelato, Concrete Bar’s secret garden and St Johns glowing slushies. Adults can enjoy warm drinks with a kick at Moonshine Bar, the newest pop-up bar in town right in the heart of the Playground Precinct, in Frank Kitts Park.
Night Bites and Moonshine Bar open during the festival 6-11pm
May 12 - 21, 6pm - 11pm
