Dubai will welcome 2017 with a spectacular fireworks display at the Downtown Dubai New Year’s Eve Gala. Celebrating national pride through a series of themed fireworks crescendos, the New Year’s Eve Gala by Emaar Properties will be a joyous visual performance set against the night-sky of Dubai.
Precisely choreographed to a sound-track which has been specially developed for the celebration, the pyrotechnics display will bring to life several milestone moments and artistic interpretations in fireworks of a falcon flying high, swirling comets, and Arabian dance forms, among others.
Specialized red and white comet shows and LED shows will be displayed from Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera and various other buildings in Downtown Dubai using the latest technologies.
The music for the fireworks is light-hearted and inspired by Middle Eastern melodies, with a series of compelling crescendos that match the scale of the fireworks.
To be broadcast live, the entire sequence of the fireworks, all the way up to Dubai Creek Harbour, can be watched on big screens in Downtown Dubai as well as online at www.mydubainewyear.com
There will also be a Twitter Livestream of New Year’s Eve Gala; to watch, follow @MyDowntownDubai
Special viewing galleries will be set up for visitors to Downtown Dubai to take part in the celebration. If you are planning to visit Dubai to see this spectacular, make sure you arrive before 6pm and use public transport as traffic is likely to be chaotic.
