Since 1998, Cannes Pyrotechnic Art Festival has welcomed the world’s greatest pyrotechnists every year on 14, 21 and 29 July and 7, 15 and 24 August. The show, performed on a 400-metre sea front, is watched by 200,000 spectators every night, who gather along the Croisette. The master alchemists of illumination practise this thousand-year-old art form using the ultimate innovations of our time, combining creativity, technology and high precision. The reflection of the fireworks on the water and the soundscape that accompanies them transport the public to an enchanting world with a series of scenes.
Cannes Pyrotechnic Art Festival thus offers a multi-coloured, musical battle where 6 guest countries compete in one of the most famous international competitions of its kind, to try and win a Silver Vestal and return to compete in the prestigious Gold Vestal every four years.
