An extensive side programme also saw a host of activities and events take place at museums, theatres, restaurants, shops and other locations in Amsterdam.

Walking route: Illuminade

The Illuminade offered a spectacular evening walk through the enchanting Plantage neighbourhood of Amsterdam, where illuminated artworks were especially installed for the festival. Featuring established names alongside up-and-coming talent in the field, the open-air exhibition stayed open for nearly a month.
