With the light festival Llum BCN in Barcelona, enter psychedelic luminous universes worthy of some of the best Daft Punk’s concerts or Tron film with magic light shows. Take your family, friends and partners and be ready to travel to the most futuristic technology environment of the year.
Poblenou, an open-air gallerie
The eighth edition of Llum BCN will take place between the 15th and the 17th of February. For the second consecutive year the neighbourhood of Poblenou will host the futuristc artwork of national and international architects, designers and artists. This will be a great opportunity to (re)discover the streets of this neighbourhood while covered with a photic layer.
This edition will offer a wider range of shows distributed in more venues than during the first editions. They will host experimental, sensorial and innovative artwork from well-known international artists and new emerging talents of students in design, art and architecture from universities in Barcelona. Poblenou will be transformed by the work of the projects that the students of the most diverse schools of the city have imagined.
And there was light
Starting from 7 PM, you will come across a large route of bright installations putting light on a performance. About thirty spaces located in the corner formed by Av. De la Meridiana and Diagonal will be open to visitors.
There will be installations and shows created by prestigious studios and artists of Barcelona. They will consist in a series of partied walls altered by light effects and projections, for instance.
Among the 20 participants this year there are internationally renowned artists such as Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and Daniel Canogar. You will also find pioneers of new digital tools such as Kyle McDonald or Joanie Lemercier technology and fundamental names in the new creative scenes of Barcelona.
It is the second year that Llum BCN is celebrated in Poblenou. For three nights, an urban landscape that moves between large state-of-the-art buildings, old chimneys, industrial warehouses and, often, the emptiness of some plots is disrupted. Very diverse spaces full of meanings join the expressive capacity of light and its transforming power to create a unique festival.
