MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM

WHAT: MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
WHERE: OLYMPIC PARK – MUNICH, GERMANY
WHEN: SATURDAY 23rd JULY 2016
WHY: PYROMUSICAL CONCERT
COST: FROM €26 – €68

We tend to focus our attention on competition rather than fireworks related articles but as this event draws visitors from across Europe and the rest of the World, we thought we would give it a look over.

The Midsummer Night’s Dream Festival (locally Munchen Summernachtstraum) was first held in 2005 and continues to captivate audiences every year. The fireworks during the festival fill the skies overhead with a sea of colour which is sure to captivate and enchant even the most difficult to please.

A firework display with music and accompanying lighting show at the Olympic Stadium are the perfect marriage of technology and the emotive force of beautiful fireworks.

Entertainment will be brought to the huge crowds from international recording artistes like British singer-songwriter Marlon Roudette (When the Beat Drops Out) who’s music is a mixture of funky grooves and soul lifting melodies which are perfect for a Summer evening, particularly in Munich where the average temperature in late July being a very pleasant 75° Fahrenheit.

ASIAGO FLAKES OF LIGHT 2016 FIREWORKS

WHAT: ASIAGO FLAKES OF LIGHT 2016 FIREWORKS
WHY: PYROMUSICAL EVENT
WHEN: FRIDAY 12th – SUNDAY 14th FEBRUARY 2016
WHAT TIME DO THE FIREWORKS START: 22.00 – 22.30
WHERE: AEROPORTO DI ASIAGO, VIA CINQUE, 36012 ASIAGO VI, ITALY

This annual event has been held for a number of years and once again, will illuminate the skies over the beautiful plateau with sparkling fireworks. Known locally as ‘Fiocchi di Luce’ it translates as flakes of light referring to the snow which surrounds the small town of Asiago in North East Italy in the heart of the Veneto mountains in the Alpine foothills.

This will be a great opportunity to spend Valentine’s weekend with the ones you love in a stunning setting watching the skies overhead lit up with specialist pyrotechnics.

In 2014 the world remembered the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I on 28th July, but here we are in 2016, in the midst of a world of geopolitical futures and the ongoing issue in Syria, peace is a fragile thing.

The Flakes of Light shows are three different events which are guided by the principles of ‘Light’, ‘Peace’ and ‘Love’.

On each of the days in turn, there will be a different theme;

Friday 12th February 2016 – THEME: LIGHT
Remembrance of the past dramas and conflicts and ending with a spirit of hope.

21.00 – Music and entertainment
22.00 – Pyromusical

Saturday 13th February 2016 – THEME: PEACE
Dream of the people to reflect the human condition searching for peace and to show compassion to our fellow man.

21.00 – Music and entertainment
22.00 – Pyromusical

Sunday 14th February 2016 – THEME: LOVE
Appropriately, St Valentines Day (14th Feb) has been the day to show romance, love and joy, devoting themselves to lovers to the theme just had to be LOVE.

21.00 – Music and entertainment
22.00 – Pyromusical

Previous years have had some of the finest exponents of the pyrotechnic craft showing their flair and expertise, including Parente Fireworks of Italy and Khan Pyrotechnics of Russia who have both listed a clutch of silverware adorning their trophy cabinets.
