Skyfire isn’t just an annual event it has become an important Canberran tradition. Every year since 1989 thousands of people attend to watch the 20 awe-filled minutes of bursts of glittering colour in the night sky. It has become a celebration of the beauty of our city and local talent.
Skyfire will happen on the 17th March and is set to deliver a magnificent display of fireworks set to a soundtrack simultaneously broadcast on Hit 104.7.
Hit104.7 broadcasts live from the stage at Regatta Point from 4.30pm onwards with their breakfast show, Ned & Josh entertaining the crowd with artist performances & interviews leading up to the fireworks at 8.30pm. The 20 minute firework spectacular has been designed by renowned pyro-technicians Foti International Fireworks who have orchestrated the display specifically to complement the soundtrack created by Canberra’s Hit104.7.
See great free live entertainment at Regatta Point before the fireworks explode! The Renound Australian DJ Duo, the POTBELLEEZ will be headlining Skyfire 30 for 2018!
