During each night of the competition, teams will showcase artistic light shows with drones for 15-20 minutes. The themes for each night will be announced later.

Each team will have a minimum of 1,000 drones.

The first night of the festival, June 29, will have the theme ‘Hello Vietnam.’ The themes for the following nights are ‘Glorious Ocean,’ ‘Stories of Heritage Land,’ and ‘Glamor Nha Trang.’

The prize ceremony will be held at the end of the last night.

Before each official drone performance, teams will conduct rehearsals to ensure the best results, according to the event’s coordinating company.

Teams must design their drones to reflect the given theme and showcase the image of Khanh Hoa and Vietnam in impressive ways, said the director of the company.

Last year, the Nha Trang – Khanh Hoa Beach Festival used over 1,650 drones to create artistic formations and structures in the air, attracting attention from millions of people in Vietnam and abroad.

Following the success of the drone art show, the provincial administration agreed to organize an annual international light show festival called ‘Ever Glamour Nha Trang 2024.’

The festival will contribute to diversifying local tourism products and attracting more visitors to the province.

Last year, Khanh Hoa welcomed about seven million visitors, including 2.1 million international visitors, an increase of 170.5% and 7.1 times, respectively, compared to the previous year.

The province’s tourism revenue in 2023 reached nearly VND31,800 billion ($1.3 billion), a 127.5% increase from the previous year.

In 2024, the local tourism sector aims to receive nine million travelers, including three million foreigners.
