As we usher in the arrival of 2024, prepare for an extraordinary New Year’s Eve celebration in the heart of Singapore. Marina Bay, known for its iconic fireworks display, promises an unforgettable experience for revelers of all ages and backgrounds. Presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2024 is the largest countdown celebration in the country, setting the stage for a night of grandeur and excitement.
This year, the highly-anticipated New Year’s Eve fireworks will illuminate the sky from a more central location in the Bay, ensuring that more spectators can relish a captivating viewing experience from all corners. Produced by the same team behind the spectacular STAR ISLAND fireworks musical, this year’s fireworks will be a multi-chapter visual narrative.
The fireworks will unfold in intervals during the hour leading up to midnight, each chapter telling a story of reflection and hope. It will commence with a tribute to the challenges and triumphs of the past year, symbolizing the promise of new beginnings, and culminating in a 12-minute grand finale celebrating the unyielding spirit of Singaporeans as they embrace the future.
Experience an immersive spectacle with artisanal fireworks that change colors as they burst into rings of different hues, accompanied by specially curated music resonating through speakers placed strategically around Marina Bay.
