Within the framework of the festival, a wide variety of attractive activities will be held, including a flash mob dance competition and a street carnival.

The stage comes replete with a host of new technologies to create an even more dynamic and dazzling show. In the front of seating areas, there will be large LED screens so that audiences can watch art performances more closely.

In addition, the shows will incorporate modern visual effects and advanced techniques.

First launched as the Danang International Fireworks Contest in 2011, the annual event was upgraded to a full-blown festival in 2017, under the sponsorship of Sun Group — the leading developer of high-end hotels/resorts and entertainment complexes in Vietnam.
