The launch of this innovative festival is in line with Shanghai's characteristics and the unique brand of Pudong urban cultural tourism. It has become an important festival and cultural tourism event in Shanghai.

Shanghai International Music Fireworks Festival uses Chinese and foreign culture as its soul, takes spacey visual arts as its charm, and makes modern technology its foundation. It perfectly combines colors, pictures, rhythm and music with melody and artistic conception, making both visual and audio impressive and artistic.

Each year six famous fireworks companies from around the world take part in the fireworks display competition. Prizes are the Gold, Silver and Copper Awards which are awarded by a panel of famous firework experts, musicians and writers.
