Burj Khalifa’s New Year Light Show To Attempt World Record
The ‘Light Up 2018’ celebrations will kick off at 5pm starting with The Dubai Fountain shows and live music
Replacing the much-anticipated fireworks, Burj Khalifa will be having a special light show to ring in the New Year 2018. We had reported about #LightUp2018 early this week.
Now, we know that ‘Light Up 2018’, the spectacle in Downtown Dubai to usher in the New Year is set to be an official Guinness World Records title attempt that will add to the UAE’s pride.
With preparations fully afoot for an innovative show with layers of surprises, Emaar’s bid for the Guinness World Records will be in the celebrations category, with specific details to be revealed in due course.
The ‘Light Up 2018’ spectacle will celebrate the UAE’s achievements and also pay tribute to the founding father of the nation, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to mark the ‘Year of Zayed’ in 2018. The festivities will span Downtown Dubai with Burj Khalifa, the global icon, taking centerstage with a never-before marvel.
Emaar is working closely with government and private sector entities in organising the event, with special viewing decks being set up for the public in Burj Park, South Ridge and the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard. A dedicated viewing platform for 100 people with determination will also be arranged.
The event will be broadcast live on televisions globally and beamed on big screens in Downtown Dubai. The experience can be watched online at www.mydubainewyear.com
