DLECTRICITY, inspired by Nuit Blanche arts festivals from around the world, presented two major light-based art + technology festivals in 2012 and 2014. Produced by Midtown Detroit, Inc. (MDI), the spectacular outdoor visual light + art celebration took place along the Woodward Corridor. Attendees were immersed in a landscape of light through groundbreaking installations of video art, 3D video mapping, lasers, interactive design and engineering, and captivating performance.
In 2014, DLECTRICITY showcased over 40 internationally acclaimed, local, and emerging artists from around the world, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Detroit. Attendance doubled from its inaugural year–from 75,000 in 2012 to 150,000 in 2014. Participants in the Light Bike Parade also more than doubled and drew over 3,000 individuals in this 4-mile route.
