After a four-year break, Skyfire will return in 2024!

Traditionally hosted by Hit104.7, in 2024 Mix 106.3 will be presenting alongside to bring the popular fireworks spectacular back on Saturday 16 March.

Skyfire began as a smallish event in 1989. Over 30 years it grew to an afternoon and evening spectacular including live performances, food trucks and activities set around and above Lake Burley Griffin and viewed by at least one third of the ACT population.

In 2024, Skyfire will feature an entertainment stage on the north side of Lake Burley Griffin, with musical acts and hosts from both radio stations. Followed by the main event – a 20-minute pyrotechnic display launched from barges on the lake, accompanied by a soundtrack played simultaneously on Hit 104.7 and Mix 106.3.

“We’re appreciative to again receive the significant support of the ACT Government who along with the event’s commercial sponsors (our partners), make the event possible together with the NCA, so many and varied agencies, local businesses and event providers. Skyfire is back!”

Further details will be announced in the lead-up to the event.
