After a 4-year hiatus, Skyfire returns in 2024!

This year’s event promises to be a celebration of community and togetherness, amplified by its sheer scale.

Shared between Hit 104.7 and Mix 106.3, Skyfire 2024 ensures that the entire region is aware of its comeback.

What is Skyfire?

Since 1989, Skyfire has been Canberra’s beloved annual event, captivating audiences for over 30 years. Originally a fireworks show synchronized with FM 104.7’s soundtrack, it has evolved into a day-long spectacle around Lake Burley Griffin, attracting at least one-third of the ACT population.

Crowds gather throughout the afternoon, securing their favourite spots or discovering prime viewing locations. As evening descends, the atmosphere buzzes with excitement as people enjoy picnics or indulge in culinary delights from food trucks strategically positioned around the lake.

As darkness falls, the entertainment stage on the north side of the lake comes to life, with hosts from Hit 104.7 and Mix 106.3 energizing the crowd. The anticipation builds with music artists, leading up to the main event – SKYFIRE 2024! A 20-minute pyrotechnic extravaganza, launched from barges in Lake Burley Griffin’s central basin, unfolds with breathtaking proximity. The spectacle is enhanced by a high-energy soundtrack simulcast on Hit 104.7 and Mix 106.3.

This monumental event is made possible by our generous family of sponsors who recognize the significance of giving back to the community and supporting cherished local events.
