Team Da Nang – Vietnam and France's Arteventia had a breathtaking display at the opening of the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival 2024 (DIFF) above the Han River on Saturday night.

The host team created a slow and romantic rhythm, while the defending champion Arteventia showed their power with the 'Dragon’s Dance' design in the only fireworks festival in Vietnam.

The host team, which has modern, high-quality equipment and has won third place three times, in 2012, 2013 and 2015, has improved their performance with an aim of moving up in ranking this year.

The team's highest achievement was earning second place at the Honda Celebration of Light in Vancouver, Canada in 2012.

France’s Arteventia, which won last year's competition, will show the power of the defending champions at the month-long 2024 festival.

Arteventia designs pyrotechnics and multidisciplinary shows in France and internationally, putting fresh vitality into grand fireworks performances over the years.

The French team played 'Dancing Queen' – a famous song from the 1980s by Swedish pop band ABBA – in their 20-minute ‘Dance of the Dragon’ fireworks show.

The team focused on the textural quality of fireworks by choosing high-quality European products, and infusing fire and Latin rhythms under the theme ‘French Touch’ in the festival.

Audiences at the opening night of DIFF 2024 were amazed with the Jetski and Flyboards artistic sports show, a skillful combination of water and aerial dances and fireworks displays, with a performance by the top world-class H2O company from Australia.

The fireworks festival has helped Da Nang build the ‘Fireworks Festival City’ brand and promote itself as a top destination in central Vietnam and Asia.

Each festival attracts more than 1 million tourists, creating millions of U.S. dollars in revenue for the city’s tourism industry, according to the event organizers.
