Symphony of Fire Returns to Cape Town

One of Cape Town’s most popular summer events is back! Last seen and heard in 2000, the Symphony of Fire, a fireworks competition between professional pyrotechnicians – set to music provided by Kfm – kicks off at the V&A Waterfront tonight.

Three further events follow, on 1, 5 and 8 April, all in the same place. It’s quite a spectacular visual and aural feast, and costs just R90 – R160 for a spot on the Portnet Tower wharf, directly across the water from where the fireworks will be launched.

  • Symphony of Fire tip: If you want to watch the show but skip the paying crowds, take an picnic dinner to Bloubergstrand beach (map), north of Milnerton, where you’ll get great views of the sparkling lights, albeit without the in-time music. Alternatively, try to find a spot to stand at the V&A Waterfront’s main mall, or a table for two on the seaside deck of the Radisson Hotel, Granger Bay (map).
