White Night 2024 in Bilbao, which will be held on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15, promises to transform the city into a vibrant scene of light and art.

On Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15, Bilbao will light up with the White Night 2024, a cultural event that will transform the city into a stage of light and art. For two days, residents and visitors will be able to enjoy music, performing arts, literature and light and sound shows in emblematic places. This celebration, originated on the occasion of Bilbao's 700th birthday, has continued successfully each year, offering a immersive cultural experience for all audiences.

The magic of the White Night in the emblematic spaces of Bilbao

The White Night program includes 33 artistic interventions and two traveling shows, which will take place simultaneously in various spaces such as the Arriaga Theater, the Museum of Fine Arts, Azkuna Zentroa, the Euskalduna Palace and the Itsasmuseum. In addition, everyday squares, churches, parks and docks will become artistic settings, creating a unique atmosphere in every corner of Bilbao.

As in previous editions, there will be no established itinerary, allowing each person to design their own route and choose the shows they wish to attend. The proposals, created by local, national and international artists, will be available from 19:30 p.m. to 00:30 a.m. This year, as a novelty, the Bilborock Room and the new BilboArte exhibition hall 'Uribitarte 40' will be added to the event, further expanding the cultural options.
