It has been 11 years since the first time the Danang International Firework Festival (DIFF) organized in 2008. Like every 10 years before, this 11th year, the festival this year promises to satisfy every tourist with its “light party”.

Each year, the DIFF has a different theme and each team use their fireworks and music to tell audiences the story of that theme in their own ways. DIFF 2019 has the theme of “Stories by the Rivers” which inspired from the fact that Vietnam has many rivers throughout the country and those rivers not only created 2 big deltas where many Vietnamese people earn their livings, but also has their precious historical meanings and moving stories. But not only Vietnam, rivers play important role in many countries around the world, therefore, through the “Stories of Rivers” topic, it is hoped that each team this year will share their own stories of the rivers to everyone successfully.
Stunning DIFF 2018 - Legends of the bridges
DIFF 2019 has 8 teams from different countries: Vietnam, China, Russia, Italia, Belgium, Finland, United Kingdom and Brazil. These teams will compete with each other through the matches in 5 nights with different small themes each night (which also link to the main topic "Stories of Rivers").
In many years, the opening ceremony is on 30 April and this festival takes place in about 2 months. However, there will be many differences with DIFF 2019 as it will take place in only about 1 month and the opening ceremony will be on 1st June 2019 which is also the International Children Day. Explaining for shortening the time of DIFF, the head of Danang said that they believe there is no need to prolong this festival in about 2 months or more which causes many difficulties and inconveniences for all teams attended, 1 month is considered as a much better period. Besides, this year DIFF matches will be happened at every weekend which help the tourists can arrange their time to come and enjoy the “light party” easier.
