Every year since 1966, Monaco has invited countless firework manufacturers and creators to join the most spectacular pyrotechnic entertainment in the region, and this summer’s show will be no exception.

The season’s kick off will begin with competitors from France this Saturday with a line-up of professionals from around the world set to follow later this summer: Austria (29th July), America (5th August) and Australia (12th August).

A powerful sound system will be installed in Port Hercule for tribute concerts of The Rolling Stones, ACDC and Coldplay to make this a unique sound and light experience.

Heightened security will be provided to let visitors enjoy the festivities in comfort and with reassurance. Two zones will receive particular attention: Quai Albert I and the terrace of the Princess Grace theatre. It is recommended that visitors only carry with them the bare minimum to facilitate safety checks at the entrance.

After each night, visitors can also vote for their favourite performance on www.monaco-feuxdartifice.mc
