The 8-minute-and-18-second fireworks salute to the end of 2015 and the welcome to 2016 on the Las Vegas Strip has taken a full year of planning. Our annual extravaganza widely hailed as one of the biggest and best in the world will be set this year to the music of Bruno Mars, Imagine Dragons and the late Michael Jackson.
More than 11,000 electrical circuits will be programmed to launch with lightning speed and precision with more than 80,000 pyrotechnic firings from seven hotel casino rooftops.
For the first time, a new mobile app designed by Fireworks by Grucci will permit Strip revelers to follow the countdown to midnight and listen in to the synchronized music score during the explosions. Download the “Fireworks by Grucci” app for iPhone and Android.
Fireworks by Grucci technicians will choreograph the performance with the pop- music mix. After the countdown to midnight and, for some, the traditional kiss to “Auld Lang Syne,” Grucci will launch its state-of-the-art performance, synchronized to its hit-filled “I’m on Top of the World” music mix.
The sky over the Strip will light up as bright as daylight with flashes, salutes and rapid-fire aerial shells to a soundtrack inspired by the seven participating venues and a song will be dedicated to each, including “Hollywood” by Michael Jackson, “Treasure” by Bruno Mars and “On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons.
