People will witness a battle between the two strongest fireworks teams from Hong Kong (China) and Italy on the third night of Đà Nẵng International Fireworks Festival (DIFF 2018). The theme ‘Happy Bridge’ will not only be illustrated with fireworks in the sky, but also by an art show that promises to be impressive.
The Vulcan, which enjoys its legendary fireworks party on Victoria Harbour (Hong Kong) every New Year, is considered a respectable name. At DIFF 2018, its top fireworks will be a major attraction on the third fireworks night, in keeping with the theme 'Happy Bridge'.
Established in 1974, Vulcan has gained international fame with major international awards, such as the Champion of International Fireworks Performance Hannover, Germany – 2009, the Champion of International Firework Performance Championships in Blackpool, England, 2009, the second prize at the Oman Fireworks World Show – 2010 and the third prize in the Quebec International Fireworks Festival held in Montreal, Canada, 2015. In Hong Kong, Vulcan is still the leading brand providing products and services related to fireworks. By using self-produced fireworks in all performances, Vulcan takes full control of the initiative to create fireworks artworks that harmonise the sound and light elements, along with modern technology.
Attending the DIFF Việt Nam 2018 for the first time, the "gunners" Vulcan is ready to take it to the "G hours" with romantic performances, described as "a film under the thousand light stars sky" inspired by famous movies. Captain Cindy Ying Sau Vermeulen said: "We are attending the DIFF for the first time, so we are excited. Last year, we had the chance to watch the DIFF finale and were impressed. So, we decided to try this playground, and our main goal is to showcase the most attractive performances for the audience in Đà Nẵng.”
Head-to-head with Vulcan, the current champion of DIFF 2017, Italian team Martarello will look to take advantage of its experience in the tournament. Making no bones about its ambition and determination to defend the championship this season, the team arrived in Đà Nẵng a week in advance to prepare for the competition night on June 2.
With impressive fireworks, as well as sophisticated and rich art, the theme ‘Happy Bridge’ is designed for Martarello. Captain Michele Martarello said: "Through the fireworks display, we wanted to create the visual effect conjured by the beautiful bridges of Đà Nẵng: rotate, sparkle, shimmering and brilliant. The fireworks will slowly drift towards the horison and slowly take your imagination to an infinite horizon."
With 100 years of experience, it is expected the brilliant description by the captain of the next night's firework performance will not be limited to words, but will be realised on Hàn River.
Top art show
In addition to the charisma of the top two fireworks display from Hong Kong and Italy, the third night of the DIFF this year promises to provide thousands of memorable experiences in Đà Nẵng via the art show performances and music performances of famous artists.
Singer Trọng Hiếu, champion of Việt Nam Idol 2015, will perform live hit songs "Draw the world” and "Happy," authored by him and SlimV. Along with that, Đăng Dương, Hồ Quỳnh Hương, Quang Hào will also entertain audience on the two banks of Hàn River through romantic love songs such as “O Sole Mio (My Sun),” “Live like the flowers,” and “Happiness in the clouds." In the folk art, Thùy Chi and Mai Trắng, Hoàng Thông crews will perform a special folk dance called "Red Lantern," which is expected to contribute another impressive and romantic colour to the happy night of art.
Romantic, warm, explosive, crazy and deep, the third festival of DIFF 2018 is the destination for visitors to Đà Nẵng in the first week of June.
