The four days of art light festival on Smögen 2018 was nothing but a success. In a way surprised but very happy, the initiator, Dulce Ahlberg, was able to welcome world leading art light artists to the cliffs and shores of Smögen. The island became an arena for beginners in the field, and for the schoolkids in the community. Children had made the opening´s work of art!

Dulce: I have talked to natives, and they have never ever seen a crowd of people like the one on September 15. On the island they are used to tourists, but on this day the amount of visitors was double up!

Smögen is since years a typical and well-known tourist-resort. The festival ISLAND OF LIGHT puts the island on a new map, the one that attracts tourists looking for culture, and it extends the tourist season.

West Sweden Tourist Board: High level of quality, of visitors and media coverage – it´s amazing and a good omen for 2019, says Gunilla Davidsson, strategic developer at the Board.
