News from Lux
LUX Light Festival, which opened tonight, is a free public light festival that turns Wellington into a captivating celebration of light, art, technology and design.

The largest light festival in New Zealand, LUX showcases a fantastical array of light sculptures that wind their way throughout the city.

Five new precincts will feature a broad range of outstanding nationally and internationally recognised artists, designers and architects, alongside an array of activities and performance.

Unique on the world stage is the all new Te Ao Marama precinct featuring a programme of New Zealand’s leading contemporary Maori light artists and performers. The Playground and Circus precincts will delight the child in everyone, while a feast of street art and fine art will highlight the Urban Edge and Gallery precincts.

As the gateway to winter, LUX invites audiences to bundle up and bask in the glow of Wellington. Come see our capital in a whole new light!
