400,000 visitors make Bright Brussels a record event

The seventh edition of Bright Brussels attracted 400,000 visitors to the Belgian capital last weekend. This was announced by visit.brussels in a press release on Monday. It was the largest edition of the festival of light ever in terms of size and peripheral entertainment.

During the four-day event, visitors were able to discover around 30 installations in three districts of Brussels: the European Quarter around the Cinquantenaire Park, the Royal Quarter around the Mont des Arts and the Quarter around the Saint Servaas church in the Schaerbeek district.

The art installations focussed on sustainability or highlighted the capital's green parks and architectural gems. The festival of light was also part of the Art Nouveau year currently underway in Brussels. This edition also featured an extensive supporting programme with special nocturnes in several museums.

Bright Brussels will return for its eighth edition in 2024. It will take place from 15 to 18 February.
