Festival of Lights will take place in October-November 2016 in St. Petersburg.

The grand premiere show of St.-Petersburg Festival of Lights was held on 29 April. Catharine the Great monument and facade of the Alexandrinsky Theatre were brought to life by 3D-mapping and audio-visual technology. For the first time in Russian history the mapping was created not only on flat surface of a building but on a three-dimensional monument.
Recognizable voices of the actors from the Russian Academic Theatre presented several scenes from Gogol’s "The Government Inspector", Lermontov’s “Masquerade”, Chekhov’s “The Seagull” and other productions. The show culminated with the awakened Catherine II saying, “Let there be light”.

LONDON PREPARES TO TRIP THE LIGHT FANTASTIC
Capital to host first-ever, free, outdoor light festival
The dark streets of London are set to be transformed by an eye-popping, outdoor festival of light.
For four nights in January, a dazzling array of light installations will illuminate locations across the capital, from iconic Carnaby Street to trendy King’s Cross and upmarket Mayfair.
Lumiere London, produced by Artichoke and supported by the Mayor of London, will be free of charge and available to enjoy from the 14th to the 17th of January.
An impressive line-up of UK and international artists will explore London’s urban landscape and architecture across four main areas: Mayfair; Piccadilly and Regent Street; Trafalgar Square, Westminster ; and King’s Cross.
In all, 30 London locations that will be transformed including Westminster Abbey and the BAFTA building in Piccadilly.
French digital artist Patrice Warrener will use his chromalithe technique to “paint” Westminster Abbey’s West Gate in an electric riot of colour. The Light of the Spirit will highlight the series of stone statues above the Great West Door including Dr Martin Luther King and El Salvadorean Bishop Oscar Romero, as well as parts of the two Western Towers built by Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor.
On Piccadilly’s BAFTA building, a host of British screen and TV icons including Michael Caine, Idris Elba and Julie Walters will appear as part of 195 Piccadilly, a dynamic, technicolour artwork by Newcastle-based studio NOVAK, with a striking soundtrack by Ed Clark. Exploring the different genres of cinema and television and using images from BAFTA’s archive, the piece will draw out the architectural features of the building and refer to its origins as the home of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour.
Additional programme highlights will include LED stickmen running riot at the top of Liberty House on Regent’s Street, an animated projection featuring a strikingly life-like elephant, a red telephone box filled with water and exotic fish, and a series of glowing sculptures in the Trafalgar Square fountains, made from thousands of recycled plastic bottles.
Organisers are hoping the event will confirm London Lumiere as the world’s foremost outdoor light festival, outshining established light festivals in Lyon, Berlin and Sydney.
Join World Nomad Andre Bolourchi as he travels to Vrindavan, India, to throw himself headlong into the traditional Holi Festival, a joyfully infectious celebration of colour and abundance that pays tribute to the mischievous Hindu god, Krishna.
During his crazy Holi adventure, Andre discovered the spirit of connectedness that permeates Indian culture and life — a spirit when surrounded by thousands of revellers all soaked in colourful paint and singing traditional songs, is impossible to ignore.

Diwali — Festival of Lights | National Geographic
From Thursday 27 January until Saturday 29 January 2011 the Festival of Lights took place in the historical city centre of Ghent. The event spotlighted the prestigious Ghent light plan. The international network LUCI awarded the "City People Light Award" to the city of Ghent in 2004. At different unique locations lightning artists presented their work. Visitors followed a 5 km walking route where they could admire the work of about 20 national and international artists such as Rafaël Lozano Hemmer, Alberto Garutti, Pablo Valbuena and Dirk Braeckman; light designers, cultural partners and the art education in Ghent. The route followed the water along many historical places and monuments. This particular sequence was captured at the Old Post Office building (today : Post Plaza) on the 'Korenmarkt', displaying a fabulous scenic 3D light beam & sound show entitled 'on dirait que..' by Spectaculaires — Les allumeurs d'images. http://www.spectaculaires.fr
