Amongst many other signature events The Ekka is famous for its fireworks displays and night time shows that bring an exciting, colourful and noisy climax to each day's proceedings. In 2013 the Ekka fireworks and entertainment will be taken to a whole new level with their new and improved night time show, Ekka Ignites 360.

Organisers are billing the new show as "Brisbane's Ultimate Night Out", a peerless pyrotechnic display that will have all of Brisbane talking. But it's not just about fireworks. Be prepared for speed bikes, fire dancers, laser lights, monster trucks, surround sound music, and entertainment by international artists. And spectacular water effects will be putting the Oh! into H2O. In fact, the laser and water effects show will be the biggest ever seen in an Australian stadium.
Four stages and huge numbers of concert speakers and lighting fixtures will bring the show to life in the Energex Main Arena every evening at 7pm from Friday 9 August to Saturday 17 August.
The show will be the perfect finale to top off an exhausting but exhilarating day of show bag buying, competition watching, pavilion searching, and dagwood dog and strawberry sundae eating. Make sure you bring your winter woolies, though; Ekka time is August winter winds time, and it can be pretty chilly sitting in the arena.
