The lineup for this year's Nuit Blanche festival, the annual all-night event that features art installations dotted around the city, has been revealed.

The seventh Nuit Blanche will take place on Sept. 29-30, and will go from 7:03 p.m. until sunrise.

"This celebration continues to attract residents and visitors in record numbers resulting in significant economic gains for Toronto," said Coun. Michael Thompson, the chair of Toronto's economic development committee in a Tuesday release.

"This event is part of our commitment to culture and is a vital part of our economic strategy."

The festival will feature 158 art projects created by over 500 artists.

"The public will be dazzled by the diversity of the works of art presented by this year's curators and artists, which are sure to satiate this city's appetite for culture," said Sara Diamond, president of OCAD University.
