DLECTRICITY, inspired by Nuit Blanche arts festivals from around the world, has presented three major light-based art + technology festivals in 2012, 2014 and 2017. Produced by Midtown Detroit, Inc. (MDI), the spectacular outdoor visual light + art celebration takes place in Detroit’s Cultural Center and DTE’s Beacon Park. Attendees are immersed in a landscape of light through groundbreaking installations of video art, new media, lasers, interactive design and engineering, and captivating performance.
DLECTRICITY was inspired by Detroit’s very own Electric Park, formerly located on the site of what is now Gabriel Richard Park. From 1906 until 1928, Electric Park served as a major attraction, beginning as a trolley park and later expanding into a dazzling amusement park with the development of electrification.
