Last updated: July 18, 2020 /1213 Views

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”.

Theme - Story By The Rivers

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.

Teams and Schedule

Teams join DIFF 2019

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").

Schedule of DIFF 2019

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.

In general, the ticket price will be from 300,000 VND (~ US$ 13) to 1,200,000 VND (~ US$ 50), except the Stand A tickets in Opening and Ending Ceremony which will be raised from 1,500,000 (~ US$ 65) to 2,500,000 VND (~ US$ 105).

On the other hand, as it is not easy to buy a ticket of Da Nang Firework Festival, the tickets in black market will be pushed to extremely high price, up to 5,000,000 VND/ticket (US$215) or more for a seat in Stand A on the peak days. With other tickets on different days and different stand, in black market right beside Han River bank, outside the Festival zone, the ticket prices are varied but can be twice or triple than the official public price. 

Tips

  • Be careful with your private stuffs such as: wallet, smartphone, camera, etc. as they are the aim of the pick-pockets around the festival.
  • Wait until the performance begin if you cannot get the ticket with public rate, the black market tickets for that night will be much more lower (equal or lower than the public rate).
  • Enjoy the DIFF 2019 "light party" from skylounge of bars, restaurants and hotels nearby. The price for a seat at these places is not cheap at all but it is much better than trying to buy a ticket in black market and more interesting than get inside the festival zone as you can have a good drink or totally delicious meal here while enjoying the stunning performance.

Some suggestions for skylounge

  • Sky36 - Novotel Premier Danang Han River
  • The Top Bar - À La Carte Danang Beach
  • Brilliant Top Bar - Brilliant Hotel Danang
  • Rooftop Bar & Coffee - Sun River Hotel Danang
