The Luminale is a international festival of lighting culture taking place every two years in Frankfurt am Main and the entire Rhine-Main region. In addition to Frankfurt itself, Offenbach, Rüsselsheim, Mainz and Wiesbaden all play host to the festival.
The programme of the Luminale is addressed both to visitors from all over the world with a professional interest in lighting and to the general public of the region. This makes the Luminale different from other lighting events, which are guided by purely commercial or touristic goals. The Luminale is a lighting laboratory open to the public. Innovation and experimentation occupy centre stage rather than oft-rehearsed illumination spectaculars aimed at a mass public. In many respects, the Luminale is a kind of meta-festival. Anyone whose work at the Luminale finds favour in the eyes of the lighting world will be invited to other festivals of light.
Lighting is becoming increasingly important due to the citification of the world. In 2006, for the first time, more people in the world were living in cities than in the countryside. Light and electricity are the most important mediums of urban life. In this respect, the Luminale is an urban age festival that reflects the development of the urban world.
