Light is a form of energy that travels and interacts with matter. When light rays reach a body they cannot pass through, they are reflected. This change is called reflection. An optical phenomenon that redirects light through different paths.
The name of this year's SKOPJE LIGHT FESTIVAL is exactly the reflection that encourages us to explore light, feel it and enjoy its path.
In order to respond to the challenges of the energy crisis, and not to question the holding of the festival, the number of festival days has been reduced to only 2 days, all installations and performances are with LED lighting and have minimal consumption, and the citizens of Skopje will can enjoy this cultural event just like all the citizens of the big European capitals, who even in these moments of energy crisis keep the festivals in full glory".
The event is organized by JU Universal Hall, financed by the City of Skopje, and supporters of the event are: State Lottery, Antena 5 radio, Yunus Emre Foundation and Marathon Group.
