Ticket holders will get to experience a futuristic twist on the traditional Japanese hanabi entertainment show. Hanabi – the Japanese word for fireworks – is a long-standing summer tradition all across Japan, where people gather to eat, drink and watch firework displays in the cooler summer nights.
STAR ISLAND Singapore Countdown 2022 – 2023 takes the tradition into the future with the use of technology and experiential show elements.
This year’s show will feature a brand new storyline set to the 70-minute unique soundtrack. State-of-the-art sound technology will excite the audience together with an immersive sound experience.
Expect Live DJ performances, family-friendly entertainment zones and gastronomic offerings at the food village as part of the STAR ISLAND experience.
Kenji Kohashi, Executive Producer of STAR ISLAND, said, “We are determined to create the best countdown experience for Singaporeans and international tourists alike to usher in the New Year, and have been planning how to choreograph our Hanabi into a brand new, spectacular storyline that will be in symphony with the fireworks, an immersive sound experience, dynamic laser displays and stage performances – painting the skies with Marina Bay as the backdrop.”
