Cannes Fireworks Festival

cannespyro.jpgAgainst the setting of the Riviera and the Mediterranean, Cannes (06 Alpes-Maritimes, Provence) holds a series of spectacular pyrotechnic extravaganzas Cannes Fireworks Festival (Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique) on the evenings of 14, 21, 29 JULY and 7, 15, 24 AUGUST 2019 with teams from around the world presenting their latest creations with accompanying soundtracks around the themes of legends, a live concert, Rhapsody in Rainbow, Lightning Dance and Franco-Russian history amongst others. Starting at 10pm these promise to be a real feast for the eyes.

From the Esterel mountains to the Pointe Croisette, the bay of Cannes forms a jewel case for great events. Cannes wanted to organize for its citizens, as well as for tourists, an international valued event in the very heart of the summer season, where it could take advantage of both : its magnificent natural scenery and its prestige.

These shows, given from a 300 meters seafront, in the splendid bay of Cannes, gave a surprising dimension to it. The reflection of the fireworks on the water and the acoustic relief, transported the public into a fairy tale world of successive frames.

To paint or to make war, these are the two options available to men who master bombs, shells, rockets, detonators, gunpowder, and who compete under their country’s flag…but the Wiseman is he who chooses the most noble use, firework professionals are artists who prefer to use the sky as their canvas rather than restrict themselves to a picture frame.

Who, among the industry greats, will win the coveted “Vestale d’Argent” this year? Who will win the “Prix du Public” (Audience’s prize) that you can vote for over the 5 nights of the competition, packed with noise and colour ?

Since 1967, the bay of Cannes is strongly linked with colours and sounds of fireworks.
There are all the time novelty and technical improvements which let us enter in an outdoor show where all the ages can find pleasure.
The International Cannes Fireworks Festival is inked in the memories of strong emotion and gorgeous display fans, but also in the history of pyrotechnicians, creators of pyrotechnical events.
Security Rules and precise organisation have to be respected by us. The Working rhythm imposed to the pyrotechnicians is hard: Working at night, imagination, creativity… The competition for the Vestal, the Jury Prize and the Public Prize are the main axes of the Festival and the pyrotechnicians. Of course, the reception and the organisation of the public is not forgotten, in fact, it is the real value of the Festival: the mix between artists and public.
