Stadium of Fire
ANNUAL STADIUM PRESENTATION & WORLDWIDE TELECAST
We created and produced our 19th consecutive STADIUM OF FIRE Independence Day weekend annual celebration, presented on July 1, 2023 by America’s Freedom Foundation and headlined by JOURNEY. The event is performed by a cast of thousands for an audience of 50,000 at BYU’s LaVell Edwards Stadium and includes a live television broadcast to U.S. military bases around the world. It is the biggest stadium-based Independence Day weekend display of pyrotechnics and special effects in the United States. Past performers have ranged from pop stars: ONE REPUBLIC, KELLY CLARKSON and THE JONAS BROTHERS to country music sensations: TIM MCGRAW, KEITH URBAN and CARRIE UNDERWOOD, with spectacular guest performances by artists like NITRO CIRCUS, BLUE MAN GROUP and CIRQUE DU SOLEIL. The Daily Herald described the production as bringing “a sense of clean-cut decency to the celebration, proving that entertainers need not sacrifice high standards for popularity.”
