There is also a ban on firecrackers in this country in 2021. The gag this year: Just like with marijuana, you can light New Year’s Eve fireworks, but you are not allowed to buy them. So if you don’t have any brisk bees, rockets, and D-firecrackers in the basement, an alternative has to be found. As in the last year, I have therefore selected the best New Year’s Eve hits on the Internet for TechMarkup!
Every year there are countless accidents with silver stars in Germany and also in the rest of the world. In order to minimize the danger a little, there will be a firecracker ban in many countries in 2021 as well. This is supposed to relieve the hospitals since firing fires is of course less important than protecting people from the new type of coronavirus.
Even if there are many people who seem to see things differently, we at TechMarkup prefer to concentrate on the search for new solutions. Like last year, I have therefore selected a selection of great fireworks videos on the Internet for you. So make the speakers loud and prepare yourself for the turn of the year with the best digital fireworks!
- YouTube’s most popular fireworks display
- Fireworks in 4K resolution
- Fireworks with a walk through the city
- Fireworks without music
- Fireworks from the perspective of … the fireworks?
The following videos are all available free of charge on the Internet and each is about real Fireworks, not computer animation. Most of the videos are recordings that are best viewed on a large TV or even a projector. For this purpose, I have always written out the title of the video in addition to the link so that you can enter it directly into the search field of your smart TV.
YouTubes “best fireworks”
What’s the Most Popular Fireworks Video on YouTube? Last year it was a minute-long symphony of rockets and the music of the Abba Revival Band. Last year’s video lasted just under 8 minutes but was replaced by a much shorter work. The video “Strobe Rocket, Fourth of July Firework, Pyro” curiously shows the trend reversal that videos have undergone on the internet in the past year.
Even if it’s not particularly long, the video is kind of cool. I suspect the developer of this one-of-a-kind rocket was able to immobilize the neighborhood for a while on July 4th. We’d rather move on quickly with fireworks videos that weren’t just designed, filmed and famous for the TikTok generation.
- Title: Strobe Rocket, Fourth Of July Firework, Pyro
- Music: No music
- Length: 0:22 minutes
- Resolution: 1.080p (caution, VVS)
Best digital Fireworks in 4K resolution
If the last video is too short for you, I picked out a pearl from the Kuwana Suigo Fireworks Festival, which takes place once a year in Japan. The fireworks as well as the video are much more professional than the first clip, the Samsung system cameras NX1 and NX500 were each used with bright fisheye lenses for recording. Are you watching the video or not?
Musically you will hear the song “Cassandra” by Thomas Bergesen next to the cracking of the rockets. A classic piece, which underlines the fireworks like a movie. What is also exciting about the fireworks is the mixture of rockets and pyro effects that take place on the ground. Is 4K still not enough for you? Then you will find a video in 8K under this link (external link on YouTube), which I will not go into in detail due to the low prevalence of 8K televisions.

- Music: “Cassandra” by Thomas Bergesen
- Length: 16:48 minutes
- Resolution: 4K
Corona fireworks with a walk through the city
Last year I spent New Year’s Eve alone in Berlin and was surprised how many New Year’s Eve bangs landed in heaven despite the ban. Having fallen up accidentally can happen. Last year I showed you a walking video from New Year’s Eve because I think it sums up the “feeling of New Year’s Eve” quite well.
While last year I showed you the turn of the year from 2019 to 2020, this year there is the first Corona New Year’s Eve. So you can see what was going on in the capital despite the prohibitions. So let’s wait and see how well the ban on firecrackers complies with this year!
- Title: ⁴ᴷ⁶⁰ New Year Walk in Berlin-Reinickendorf | 🇩🇪 Germany Lockdown New Years Eve 2021 | Fireworks
- Music: No music
- Length: 11:36 minutes
- Resolution: 4K with 60 frames per second
Fireworks without music
People who eat a cucumber loudly into a microphone, 10 hour long cat memes and ASMR videos from the chiropractor – there are enough of all of these on YouTube. But I had to look for a long time for fireworks shows without music. But I was able to locate a fireworks show with a pure fireworks sound and immediately noticed that I had hit a sore spot. “Done the fireworks way” it says in the title and that almost screams for an emancipation for musicless fireworks.
So while the sound is fireworks style, the resolution of the video leaves a lot to be desired. You have to be satisfied with 240p, but actually most of the fireworks videos are 95 percent dark anyway. I didn’t even notice the super low resolution. In a nutshell:
- Title: Traditional Fireworks – no music, done the fireworks way. PGI 2007
- Music: No music
- Length: 15:06 minutes
- Resolution: 240p
Fireworks from the perspective of … the fireworks?
Why do we actually only look at the digital fireworks with the limitations of our own, unimpressive bodies? A YouTuber risked his expensive DJI Phantom 2 and flew through fireworks with a GoPro Hero 3. The video shows impressively how three-dimensional New Year’s rockets actually are. At the same time, it triggers anxiety in me, which may have arisen from pyro-affine childhood friends who always aim the rockets at others than at themselves.
With the background music to Andrea Bocelli’s “Time to Say Goodbye” in the Italian version (Con Te Partirò), the whole thing also has a drama that is almost touching. The drone is also doing well, writes the AlteredStates channel in its video description. Again I have summarized the details for you:
- Title: Fireworks filmed with a drone
- Music: “Time to say Goodbye” by Andrea Bocelli
- Length: 4:07 minutes
- Resolution: Full HD
