Jounieh International Festival – Opening Fireworks Display

Jounieh International Festival – Opening Fireworks Display

Jounieh is a coastal City approximately 16km north of Beirut and home of the Jounieh International Festival. The organisers had ambitious plans this year for the opening of the fourth Festival, wanting fireworks to be launched from fifty sites around the Bay and all set to a specially commissioned  soundtrack.   Merlin rose to the challenge and our designer Pierre-Yves got to work on the design and programming while our Firemaster expert Ben popped out to Jounieh to test, demonstrate and prove the radio system earlier this year. Then our team went out in June to work with Lebanese Companies ICE, International Corporate Events and J & J Fireworks.

The display was presented to great acclaim on the 27th June 2014 and this beautiful picture by EliE Sawma shows the scale of the display!

Merlin used the Parente Firemaster system as its superb radio abilities were perfect to synchronise the 100+ Firing Modules spread over 6Km of coastline.  Video of the whole 7 minute display can be seen here .
