DSF New Year’s Eve Fireworks

In addition to the iconic displays that take place at The Palm Jumeirah, Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab, the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) New Year’s Eve Fireworks will feature dedicated displays of overhead pyrotechnics all across the emirate. The synchronised New Year’s Eve shows will take place in Hatta, Al Seef, Bluewaters, and The Beach, JBR, starting at 11:59pm at all locations. The New Year’s Eve celebration continues with fireworks displays at midnight.

NYE DSF Drones Show

Two all-new synchronised drone displays colour the night sky at The Beach, JBR and Bluewaters. The shows feature more than 800 coordinated drones in a symphony of colours and shapes. The first show, at 8pm, will celebrate Dubai’s past, and the second, at 10pm, will look ahead to the city’s future.
