The show, with the participation of 2,024 drones, will be organised by the People’s Committee of Tay Ho district, the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (Petrovietnam), and the Vietnam Public Bank (PVcomBank) in celebration of the New Year, the district Party Committee said.

It will officially take place at the Van Cao T-junction by the side of West Lake at 11:30pm on February 9. The audience can gather on Nguyen Dinh Thi and Trich Sai streets to enjoy the performance.

Shortly after that, high-altitude fireworks will be set off nearby from 0am to 0:15am on February 10, the first day of the Year of the Dragon.

People can watch the light show early at its final rehearsal at 9pm on February 7.

The event is set to feature the biggest number of drones for such a performance in Southeast Asia, to be accompanied with exclusively composed music and screens for live broadcasting installed around West Lake, promising an unprecedentedly spectacular show for locals and visitors on the threshold of the Year of the Dragon, according to organisers.
