  • Lilu Light Festival Lucerne – postponed

    With a heavy heart we have decided to postpone the 3rd Lilu Light Festival Lucerne by one year due to the latest Covid-19 restrictions of the Swiss Federal Council. With again great light installations we would have loved to enliven the city of Lucerne with creative light art and to provide for beautiful emotions. However, the health of the festival visitors, the locals, the artists and the festival team is our top priority. The 3rd Lilu Light Festival Lucerne will take place from January 6 to 16, 2022.

  • Crowdfunding finished

    Thanks for the support! Unfortunately we have not reached the funding threshold. Nevertheless, our crowdfunding campaign had a positive impact and we were able to generate a lot of attention. With a lot of passion and commitment we are now trying everything so that the 3rd Lilu Light Festival Lucerne can take place in January 2021.

  • Start crowdfunding

    Although the 3rd Lilu Light Festival Lucerne will not take place until January 2021, we too are strongly affected by the current crisis. Some sponsoring partnerships have already been cancelled and it is difficult to find new partners. Lilu offers a platform for many people who are also affected by the crisis and also for artists. Support us now on Funders.ch so that we can realize the 3rd Lilu Light Festival Lucerne from January 7th to 17th 2021. Thank you very much for your support!
