What is the Amsterdam Light Festival [ALF] contribution?
During the Amsterdam Light Festival, over 30 artworks will be showcased in the city of Amsterdam. These are designed and developed by artists and designers, who have worked on these for months to get them to the designated location during the festival. Since the Dutch winters are infamous for their turbulent weather conditions, the maintenance of these artworks is one of the key priorities of the Amsterdam Light Festival organization. Hence, the shipping companies that are Official Partner of the Amsterdam Light Festival pay an Amsterdam Light Festival contribution per guest for the maintenance of these artworks to the organization of the event. By means of these contributions, the organization can ensure the quality and maintenance of the artworks in order for us to offer you a high-quality cruise: in light of service, personal attention and quality of the artworks of the Amsterdam Light Festival.
