Kyiv's popular sights to play out in fresh colours
May 12-14, during the Eurovision Song Contest Kyiv Lights Festival, the first international festival of light and media art, will be held.
Within three days the architectural outlook of the city will be greatly changed due to video graphic designers, artists of light and laser, VJs and contemporary artists.
Kontraktova Square, Poshtova Square near the River Station, St.Michael's Square and Andrew's Descent will be served as locations for the light show.
Every day there will be a 3D-mapping contest, non-competitive projects accompanied by live music, large-scale light shows, exhibitions of works by contemporary Ukrainian artists working with light, multiple light installations and sculptures in urban space.
For several years light festivals have gathered thousands of people in Berlin, Jerusalem, Sydney and other world capitals.
