The 2022 program of light, music, art, innovation and immersive experiences includes Istanbul-based visionaries Ouchhh Studio’s major exhibition, Wisdom of AI LightDamon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s ground-breaking band Gorillaz, the return of celebrated Montreal studio Moment Factory’s Light Cycles at the Botanic Gardens, the free city-wide centrepiece City Lights plus genre-defying music and visual series KLASSIK underground, and electronic music event Unsound.
