During 1 month the MLF brings together a broad cross-section of high-end innovative ideas revolving around sustainability, art and education. This quality is reflected in the curatorial selection of the light artworks and the artistic program of the festival, without compromising the accessibility for and interaction with the general public.

The artworks are located alongside two different exhibition routes; The Medina of Marrakesh, the walking route and Ouarzazate, the Gateway to the Sahara. As a tribute to the cultural heritage MLF furthermore highlights historical sights in the 4 kings cities.
