Match Music to your New Year’s Eve Display!

With 2020 being the way it has; I think we can all agree that we must celebrate the end of it in style! Let’s say good riddance and wave goodbye to the year of COVID and look forward to better times in 2021.

Unfortunately, restrictions are still in place meaning that any big New Year’s Eve plans you may have had are now off the cards. With this is mind many of you may be considering a small more intimate celebration from your own homes. When it hits midnight on 31st December why not let off your own mini fireworks display and watch the nights sky light up right in front of your eyes. Fantastic Fireworks have put together some special festive packs perfect for the occasion!

If a readymade pack is not for your then we also have hundreds of multi shot fireworks, rockets, fountains, wheels and
single ignition fireworks for sale online.

To help you go that little bit further and enhance your experience we
are giving you some firework themed songs that will pair perfectly with your display and compliment the banging lights in the sky.


A big question always is, how do you set off fireworks in time to the music? The answer is simple – a little bit of planning and preparation, alongside some luck!

RULE 1: know the exact duration of both the music and the fireworks. For example, if you have a song that is 3 minutes long, but your fireworks only have a total duration of 2 minutes – the timing will be completely off! Now, knowing the duration of fireworks can be a little tricky but we here at Fantastic Fireworks have just the thing to help you – our BANGOMETER.


Each firework in our store and online is paired with its own bangometer. This instant guide gives you more information on product noise level, colour, number of shots and its DURATION!

RULE 2: Next, you have to make sure the music and fireworks sound good. Firstly, you must start with a good song. If you try to do a firework display to Cliff Richards ‘’Summer Holiday’’ it may not have the impact you are looking for. Here are some of the most popular songs used in ‘pyromusical’ firework displays:

Ellie Goulding – Burn

The Prodigy – Fire Starter

Take That- Relight my fire

Katy Perry – Firework

Queen – We will Rock You

Elton John – Rocket Man

One Republic – Counting Stars

Adele – Set Fire to The Rain

Cold Play – A Sky Full of Stars

Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire

Tinie Tempah – Written in the stars

Dirty Dancing – The Time of my Life

Queen – Don’t Stop me Now

Survivor – Eye of the Tiger

Tina Turner – Simply the Best

Some of these may seem a bit cheesy, or unlikely, but they are classics, and you will be surprised how well they work alongside a sky full of colourful, fun fireworks.

Remember this is just a guide and advice – you can choose your own music as you please.

ENJOY this New Year’s Eve!
