Brace for a spectacular surprise at Downtown Dubai this NYE

Every year, Dubai never fails to amaze the world with grand spectacles on New Year’s Eve. It has been a tradition for its landmarks, from the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al Arab up to the Atlantis The Palm, to light up the sky with meticulously choreographed fireworks show.

This year is going to be different for the Burj Khalifa and the rest of Downtown Dubai. Emaar, the developer that manages the world’s tallest tower, sends out an official statement that it is putting together a series of surprises for a New Year’s Eve show called “Light Up 2018”.

“We’re lighting up the sky and celebrating the New Year with an innovative performance that will dazzle the world and put the global spotlight on the UAE and Dubai,” a post by Downtown Dubai read.

As the New Year rolls in, all of the iconic buildings that line the skyline of Downtown Dubai shall turn into a canvas for a never-before-seen light extravaganza set to a specially choreographed music. The entire show is coordinated and produced by a team of world-class experts, Emaar said in an official statement.

Special viewing platforms will be set up across Burj Park, the primary venue of the event, as well as across Downtown Dubai. If you can’t make it to the city, you may watch the show that will be broadcast live online at
