This year's theme is 'The Medium is the Message', the famous adage by Canadian scientist Marshall McLuhan. Put simply, the medium through which a message is conveyed shapes how a message is understood.
This edition explores the role that light plays as a medium for telling stories. Over 600 artists from around the world submitted concepts on this theme. Ultimately, 30 dazzling art installations were selected to illuminate Amsterdam's historic city center during the festival.
As for you, nestled aboard a charming historic canal boat, you'll have the coziest way to experience the festival! Don't worry about the winter chill – on-board heating, thick blankets and complimentary gluhwein or soda will warm your body and soul as you enjoy the best of this year's display.
