Future Firework Entertainment Event ‘STAR ISLAND’ Heads to Singapore

04.November.2018 | SPOT

STAR ISLAND is an event that describes itself as ‘future firework entertainment.’ The show has been held twice in the past and sold over 30,000 tickets. Now, for the first time ever, the fireworks will be exploding overseas.

 

STAR ISLAND Singapore Countdown Edition will welcome the New Year at The Float @ Marina Bay in Singapore at 23:00 on December 31, 2018.

STAR ISLAND brings together top creators in Japan to evolve Japan’s firework culture. Some big names include creative director Kenji Kohashi, the 150-year-old firework company Marutamaya Ogatsu Fireworks, 3D sound pioneer Katsuyuki Seto, globally-active lighting engineer AIBA, and more.

 

The event offers new ways to enjoy watching fireworks. The ‘Bed Area’ lets you gaze up at the lights while laying on a bed. The ‘Dinner Area’ is a place where can enjoy a meal while watching the fireworks. The ‘Kids Area’ is perfect for families, allowing attendees to see the explosions with their children. The event has given rise to a brand new business model that combines multiple paid-seating areas with fireworks.

 

STAR ISLAND has been held two years in a row in 2017 and 2018 at Odaiba Kaihin-Koen in Tokyo. Now, with backing from the Singaporean government, it is headed to what is said to be the largest region in Asia. The huge New Year’s countdown will take place with Singapore’s landmark Marina Bay Sands in the background.

12,000 fireworks will be launched, with each individual one firing to each beat of the music in sync. Cutting edge sound technology will propel the music which will blare from over 300 individual 3D sound speakers for a full 360° experience. A string of performances will take place on stage, including one from the LED BAND who combine the fireworks with 3D sound and lighting to create a rainbow of colours. The kid’s area will be decked out with a jungle gym, ball pit and breast-feeding area for mothers.

 

Celebrate the coming new year Japanese-style in Singapore.
