Burj Khalifa’s New Year’s Eve show to run for 3 months

The spectacle that ushered in 2019 will continue to run from January 1 until March 31.

Want to watch again (and again) the New Year’s Eve (NYE) laser and light show at Burj Khalifa? The spectacle that ushered in 2019 will continue to run at various times from January 1 until March 31.

From January 1 to 5, a shorter version of the Emaar NYE 2019 gala will be displayed that will include laser, light and The Dubai Fountain shows. These will be held at 7pm and 9pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, and at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

From January 8 to March 31, the shorter version of NYE gala will be displayed daily once from Tuesday to Saturday. There will also be two separate laser and light shows from the extensive LED display library of Burj Khalifa. The shows on Tuesday and Wednesday will be at 7.15pm, 8pm and 9.15pm, and from Thursday to Saturday at 6.45pm, 8pm and 9.45pm.

The shows will be complemented by the performances of The Dubai Fountain.

The laser and light displays, which were part of the Emaar NYE 2019 Gala, narrate the story of the UAE under the theme ‘time and progression’. It starts with a Dhow navigating the Arabian Peninsula and a diver picking a pearl at the bottom of the sea which turns into the moon.

The spectacle highlights the heritage of the UAE, beginning with a quote from the country’s founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Abstract motifs highlight the forward journey of the country and its sharp progress over the years, showcasing the successful launch of the UAE-made KhalifaSat and underlining its future ambitions, including the Mars Mission.

With the laser and light show, the world’s tallest tower standing at 828 metres has also earned two Guinness World Records: “Largest illuminated facade and Tallest LED-illuminated facade.
