Light City show in Baltimore

The Light City show in Baltimore

This post is about the Light City show in Baltimore this March.

You may not know is that Baltimore was the first city outside of England to adopt gas street lights -- although London beat Baltimore to the punch by installing gas street lights in 1807.


Today Baltimore is now home to Light City, America's first and largest international light, music and innovation festival. Named one of the top “16 things to see and do in the United States” last year, the Light City festival will transform Baltimore's renowned Inner Harbor into a playground of 23 large-scale light art installations.

Brilliant Baltimore” will illuminate 40 iconic landmarks of Baltimore while “Neighborhoods Lights” will extend the magic of the festival to eight distinct Baltimore neighbourhoods.

Light City will also organise 35 concerts and more than 200 performances from March 31 through April 8, 2017. There will be live performers like rapper Biz Markie (“You Got What I Need”) and the New Orlean's Dirty Dozen Brass Band; and events such as an illuminated bike party featuring Baltimore's new Bike Share.

Last year's debut Light City Festival drew 400,000 visitors and created a hub of unity and international inclusivity by providing local Baltimore artists the opportunity to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with a distinguished roster of national and international artists.

This year's Light City festival will include artists from seven countries including the UK, France, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Lebanon and Israel.
