STAR ISLAND, a renowned fireworks entertainment, returns its signature fireworks show after a two-year hiatus.

The spectacular fireworks musical will feature an 80-minute array of sound and colours this upcoming December 31, 2022.

Executive Producer of STAR ISLAND Kenji Kohashi 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.”

In conjunction with Marina Bay Singapore Countdown (MBSC), the show will be hosted at The Float at Marina Bay. Organised by Avex Asia, presented by major global payment brands, JCB, and Sanrio as a Premium Sponsor, STAR ISLAND is a futuristic take on Japan’s Hanabi summer tradition, where spectators gather over food and drinks to enjoy the fireworks.

Having presented three shows in Japan and two shows in Singapore, STAR ISLAND has also debuted in the Middle East, to celebrate Saudi Arabia’s National Day in 2019. 

For its show in Singapore, STAR ISLAND will be choreographed to an immersive soundtrack. This year’s show features a new storyline titled LIFE – Beyond The Time – that follows a Space and Time theme.

Ticket holders will be treated to specially hand-crafted fireworks designs never before seen in Singapore, such as the ‘Gradation Shell’ fireworks – an effect specifically designed with Singapore in mind with a red-to-white time gradation display. 

Part of the showcase is the appearances of Sanrio characters, including a live pre-show gig by DJ Hello Kitty who will get fans to move to the beat; a Sanrio-themed family-friendly area, and many more!

As a taster, there will be the “Prequel to STAR ISLAND” that will run from 25-31 December 2022. Held at the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza, the affair is open to the public for free! 

Booths from JCB, Sanrio, Penfolds, and Jim Beam Highball will be set up at the Event Plaza from December 25 to December 31. A Sanrio Character pop-up store with special DJ Hello Kitty x STAR ISLAND collab merch for both kids and adults will be available.

For the adults, there’s a Penfolds wine pop-up and a Jim Beam Highball Bar to usher in the new year. If you’re a JCB member, flashing your JCB card at the booth allows for a free drink at the bar.
