This year, the highly-anticipated New Year Eve’s fireworks will be launched from a more central location of the Bay, offering more spectators a captivating viewing experience from all around.

Choreographed to tell a story of reflection and hope, the fireworks will kick off with a tribute to the past year’s challenges and triumphs, before heralding the promise of new beginnings and thereafter, culminating in a 12-minute grand finale celebrating Singaporeans’ unyielding spirit as we embrace the future. The audience can look forward to an immersive experience with artisanal fireworks that change colour as they burst and bloom into rings of different colours, accompanied by specially curated music played through speakers around the Bay.
