On Friday September 8, 2017, Les Masters de Feu, the international fireworks display contest is back for a second edition at Compiègne racetrack. This year, the great jury panel will be tasked with deciding between Greece, Belgium and United Kingdom facing off against each other on the following theme: secrets of the European capitals.

After a very successful edition in 2016 during which over 10,000 spectators came to discover the best pyrotechnists from Austria, Italy, Spain, on Friday September 8, 2017, Les Masters de Feu will be back at Compiègne racetrack.

For this second edition based on the following theme: "secrets of the European capitals", the jury will have to decide between Greece, Belgium and United Kingdom. This jury consists of 12 members including 7 to 8 celebrities and 4 to 5 members from the public selected at random on D-Day. They all have to assert each contestant according to 5 criteria:

  • respect for the theme "secrets of the European capitals"
  • general esthetics of the show
  • emerging feelings
  • synchronization of the effects
  • diversity of the used products

Among the celebrities included in the jury chaired by actress, host and producer Sandra Lou: Philippe Candeloro, singer Jeremy Charvet, Reine du Muguet (Lily-of-the-valley queen) Caroline Kromwel, actor and producer Simon Astier, and actress and humorist Nadia Roz. Because a firework specialist is needed, Festival of Pyrotechnic Art of Cannes project manager Jean-Mars Solbes will be attending.

To make the best of this night, spectators are allowed to enter in the racetrack from 6 p.m. They will have time to settle down and maybe have something to eat booked in advance for comfort or to buy on the spot for last-minute fan.

Starting from 7 p.m., female singer Kaheena opens the festivities thought up like a Got Talent show. At 7:30 p.m., 4 to 5 jury members will be drawn at random among the public. The evening will continue with a second showcase performed by jury member Jeremy Charvet, known for his appearance on The Voice.

9 p.m., make way for pyrotechnic! The opening show is provided by the French pyrotechnists from ArtEventia. They do not contest but embody the French know-how.  Then it is followed by Nano Fireworks’ (Greece), HC Pyrotechnies’ (Belgium) and Smart Pyrotechnics’ (UK) performances, their appearance order is not yet decided.

11:20 p.m. it is time to close the show with a performance provided by France on the same theme as the three contestants, followed by the prize-giving ceremony with the Chair, Sandra Lou.

Each year, the winner is awarded the Silver Master and wins a ticket for the great finale which will name the ultimate winner during the fourth edition.
