Da Nang International Fireworks Festival 2017

Da Nang International Fireworks Festival 2017 (DIFF 2017) with the theme “The Shining Marble Mountains” will take place from April 30th to June 26th, 2017.

ABOUT DIFF

Originally known as an annual event when founded in 2008, the Da Nang International Fireworks Competition became bi-annual in 2011, 2013, and 2015 over the Vietnam National Reunion Holiday. From this year, we are lucky to be able to celebrate the festival as an annual event once again!

Da Nang International Fireworks Festival Poster

Being inspired by the image of Marble Mountains of Da Nang, the performance programs of DIFF 2017 will be represented and named after the five elements Hoa (Fire) – Tho (Earth) – Kim (Metal) – Thuy (Water) – Moc (Wood) on five consecutive nights. All the performances will take place at one breathtaking waterfront venue.

With careful preparation, each performance is not only a symphony of sound and light with an impressive firework display but also an artistic masterpiece, illustrating the competing countries world-class skills against the beautiful backdrop of Vietnam’s ‘Bridge City.’
