Luminato Festival

Toronto has an amazing array of arts festivals throughout the year, but only Luminato Festival is uniquely attuned to the city’s avant-garde vibes. Luminato blends performance art, visual arts, live music and interactive exhibits into a two-week spectacular. 

In 2007, Luminato kicked off with over 1,500 artists whose work appeared in dozens of venues throughout Toronto, including festival-specific works commissioned from Monty Python member Eric Idle. Other Luminato highlights from years past include headliner events featuring Rufus Wainwright, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Amal Clooney, David Byne, and the North American premiere of a documentary about artist Marina Abramović. 

Luminato is also designed to showcase some of Toronto’s hidden gems, sprinkling happenings throughout the city and emphasizing Canadian artists — even commissioning hundreds of works from throughout the country to appear at the city’s museums and galleries, parks, theatres, and public forums. Luminato’s return is most hotly anticipated by the international art community.
