France and the US will be the second performers on May 26. Defending champions Italy and Hong Kong (China) will perform on June 2, while Sweden and Portugal will light up the night’s sky on June 9. The two best teams will be selected for the final on June 30, where the winner of the festival will be chosen.

The event, which was held for the first time in 2008 and was formerly known as the Da Nang International Fireworks Competition, has emerged as an important cultural and tourism event, contributing to cultural exchanges and inviting many foreign tourists to Da Nang and Vietnam.
