About the light festival in Uppsala

On November 1 2019 we light the seventh edition of Uppsala Light Festival, where light installations illuminate the city center during one of the darkest months of the year. The theme of the festival is “Uppsala celebrates” and focus on personalities, locations and different phenomena in Uppsala.

This is the seventh time that a number of objects in central Uppsala will be illuminated. Together, they form a innovatively, beautiful public gallery of light installations.  We cordially invite you, your friends and family out into the November dark to discover Uppsala in a new light!

The Allt ljus light festival has been held in Uppsala every even year since 2008. It aims to get residents and visitors out into the city in one of the year’s darkest months and to show off new technology and interesting ways of working with light. As of 2018 the light festival is arranged annually.

Allt ljus is arranged by the municipality of Uppsala and Uppsala City in collaboration with artists, installation hosts, partners and co-organisers. Destination Uppsala project manages and markets the event.


We would like to send our warmest thanks to the artists, our installation hosts, sponsors and co-organisers!

Environmental work

We take care of both the local environment and the environment at large. We actively seek to hold a light festival that is as sustainable as possible and which has as little negative environmental impact as possible. Our initiatives include actively reducing littering and encouraging our co-organisers to adopt an environment and sustainability aware approach to carrying out their activities.

As a visitor, you can help too! Please help us to reduce littering by using the provided litter bins. Where possible, take an active responsibility for sorting your litter (paper in the paper bin, etc.).  We also encourage you to use public transport. Getting a bus or a train to the festival is easy – tickets can be bought directly via the UL-app.
