2022 Pyrotechnics Art Festival : Back to the international competition

Every summer, Cannes hosts in its bay one of the most prestigious Pyrotechnic Art Festivals in the world.  After a pause due to the health crisis, the international competition is back to the Croisette for six shows presented by masters of fireworks and the art of synchronisation. These international fireworkers, from Poland, Norway, Italy, Canada, Switzerland and France, are competing for the Silver Vestal price and are using all their creativity to offer carefully organised pyro-musical displays. Each performance on the seafront is acclaimed by more than 100,000 people and a jury of specialists who attend these spectacular jousts. This extraordinary event offers magical moments composed of successive tableaux combining high-precision pyrotechnics and music from the most famous film soundtracks.

The fireworks can be watched online (live or recorded).

Vote for the fireworks that have seduced you, moved you and blown you away!
