The Most Spectacular Festival Fireworks

The Most Spectacular Festival Fireworks

Emblazoning the clouds with spectacular colour, blotting out every last inch of night sky and sending aftermovies into visual overdrive, off-the-scale firework displays have become a calling card of some of the very biggest music festivals around.

So with retinas still stamped by NYE shows far and wide, here's a look at the leading lights of the festival world.

EDC Las Vegas - The Sky Filler

Electric Daisy Carnival's travelling extravaganza has made its way to pretty much every corner of the globe, but as our Twitter followers were quick to point out, the City of Lights remains its most indulgent host. While most displays parade over main stages, and most wrap things up in a gloriously overblown finale, EDC Las Vegas blankets the entire festival site in a rainbow blaze night after night.



Edinburgh Festivals - The Crowd Puller

Every August the grand city of Edinburgh turns into the beating heart of the international performing arts scene. Comedy, theatre, music and literature dominate the landscape, from the cultured offerings of Edinburgh International Festival to the anarchic freedom of the Festival Fringe.

To mark the end of festival season, over 250,000 people gather to watch 400,000 fireworks shoot from Princes Street Gardens, showering the city's famous castle in technicolour.

Bestival - The Themed Thriller

With at least one world record in the back pocket, Bestival's firework finale is not one to miss. Each year's theme plays heavily into the display's design, inevitably leading to a sky full of hearts at the climax of 2015's "Summer Of Love." The previous year's world-conquering disco ball summed up Bestival's madcap eccentricity perfectly.

Arcadia Travelling Stages - The Immersive Experience

If you find yourself at a festival with an Arcadia stage, don't even pause to think about whether you should go. Recycled materials, huge fire bursts and real-life acrobats help Arcadia create the most imaginative, and most visually impressive festival stages in the world.

The classic, sky-filling firework display is tied down and compressed into a small, jaw-dropping space that all works in synchronicity with the music, regularly pitching up to party with Glastonbury, BoomTown, Ultra Miami and many more.


Awakenings ADE - The Wild Card

Awakenings parties are pretty much second to none, whether they're at home in the amazing Gashouder or heading off around the world.

But beyond lineups that reliably boast stardust from the likes of Carl Cox, Joris Voorn, Nicole Moudaber and Nina Kraviz, Awakenings' iconic Amsterdam venue is permanently glittering with INDOOR fireworks. Not many places around the world you can say that about.
