The third weekend of August was the 4th year of the Starry Nights multi-genre festival in Bytča. This small Slovak festival has a completely different concept to which we might have been used to. It takes place in the city, in several places, outdoors and indoors.

It brings music, theatre and movies and does not forget even the youngest visitors. Traditionally, the highlight of the art part of the event program was the video mapping which surprised the audience by its form this year. Bytča became the only Slovak town using the video mapping. The light artworks were presented on the river, in the middle of the square.

On Friday evening, the water wall rising from the Petrovice River revived and the video mapping projection from the workshop of the art formation TRAKT was exposed. We are grateful to DHZ Hlinik for the water wall.
