The Signal festival is returning to Prague with its new enlightening program that symbolizes ten years of the event. The streets of Prague will be lightened again for a couple of days, promoting contemporary and visual art, urban space notions, and modern technology.
The event will run for four days, from October 13, 2022, to October 16, 2022.
What is the Signal Festival?
The Signal Festival is a unique event that promotes the digital and creative culture of the city. Since 2012, the event has linked a synergy between contemporary visual art, urban space, and modern technology. Together, all these three components work the best, delivering excellent outcomes.
“The program was created by renowned foreign and Czech artists in light design, visual and digital art, AI, and conceptual art. It links the historical backdrop of beloved Prague with state-of-the-art technologies and contemporary social issues, ” said Signal Festival organizers.
For the past ten years, Signal has welcomed more than three million visitors to Prague. This is according to the statistics of only the sold tickets to the “pre-paid” parts of the exhibition. In reality, the number must be twice as significant due to the open, aka “free” exhibits.
Despite its annual appearance on Prague streets, Signal offers various activities for art enthusiasts. For instance, it organizes side events for children, professionals, and students of art schools. On top of that, it cooperates with several cultural institutions within the Czech Republic.

In 2022, the Signal Festival will celebrate ten years since its establishment. That is why this event is significant not only for the project’s organizers and masterminds but also for Prague, its residents, and visitors.
“For ten years, we have been lighting up Prague and connecting contemporary visual art, urban space, and modern technology. This year, we will introduce a new route in the city district and new installations. As a gift, we will re-light the most beautiful installations you loved over the years,” confessed Signal Festival organizers.
The experience of the tenth edition of Signal Festival promises to be special, combining old and new sites into one – how we all like in good old times.
