drone light show LondonDrone light shows are more than just entertainment – they’re a stunning achievement in drone fleet management, flight over people, precise positioning, and more.  Experts SkyMagic deployed 500 aircraft to provide the biggest drone light show London has ever seen to ring in 2022.

SkyMagic’s drone light show was performed from the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich and over the River Thames as part of the Mayor of London New Year’s Eve spectacular.

Delivering a “message of hope and positivity,” says a SkyMagic press release,  “London welcomed the new year with a dynamic broadcast show that took place across the city, celebrating its diverse cultural heritage… ”

SKYMAGIC worked with Jack Morton, a global brand experience agency who created and produced the live show.

SKYMAGIC flew a fleet of 500 drones to deliver the UK’s largest ever drone light show, telling an even bigger story above the London skyline with the iconic cityscape as the canvas. Our drones performed using cutting edge RTK technology that delivers improved GPS accuracy and high-definition images, as well as faster transitions between moves, to depict some of the most exciting moments to come in 2022.

Patrick O’Mahony, Creative Director of SKYMAGIC commented, “We were delighted to collaborate again with Jack Morton to design and deliver the drone light show for London New Year’s Eve for the second year running. Building on last year’s show, we have returned to the capital with a larger fleet and having developed our drone division both technologically and creatively. The 2022 show tells a celebratory story with an emphasis on three-dimensional formations, conceptual shapes and complex trajectories.”

Jim Donald, Production Director, Jack Morton added, “We are honoured to have brought the UK’s largest drone show to London in 2022, and I am delighted to have collaborated with the SKYMAGIC team again to deliver this above the skies of London. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the UK’s leading drone light show company.”

 Sending a much needed optimistic message anticipating our return to live entertainment, the show touched on themes of sports,  live music, and Carnival.
