The sixth edition of the international SIGNAL Festival of Lights will take place in 8 Prague´s districts this October. During the Festival, you can admire various installations, video mappings (in 2D and 3D) and projections in the streets and public spaces of Prague. You can expect to see creative works of local designers as well as visual artists from abroad. The Festival was created on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of the Old Town Astronomical Clock in 2010, when the first video mapping was successfully realized on its facade.

There will be 3 main routes this year – in the city centre (8 installations), in Vinohrady (7 installations) and a new route in Karlin (5 installations). The installations are for free, except from 3D projections (50 CZK) and 5 interior installations at the Gallery Zone (for example in the Mirror Chapel in Klementinum). The entrance fee including all objects of the Gallery Zone is 170/100 CZK. You can also look forward to accompanying programme, modern music performances or church pipe organ music. To find more information about the programme, locations of the installations or to buy tickets to the Gallery Zone, please visit the official website of the SIGNAL Festival https://www.signalfestival.com/en/.

TIP: As the Festival is very popular, the route in city centre it is usually crowded, so please be prepared to spend more time at the best installations. Much less crowded is the route in Vinohrady offering for example video mapping on the facade at the church of St Ludmila or 3D graffiti.
