|The City of Lyon by the River Rhone, all lighted up|
Lyon is the second biggest city in France located 470km south-east of Paris. The Lyon Light Festival is one of the most famous lighting festivals in Europe.
The festival has been held every year since medieval France. It has its roots in a religious-related event. But nowadays it has been re-branded into a modern, high-tech lighting festival much anticipated by many in France and near-by neighbouring countries. It attracts some of the best minds and most creative lighting experts in Europe who come to display their flair and hardware.
We were there at the festival to soak in the atmosphere and to see first-hand how a lighting festival is run.
Come 2013, we will have our very own full-fledged world-class lighting festival: The Putrajaya Light Festival.
