Burj Khalifa fireworks confirmed New Year’s Eve

The world-famous Burj Khalifa fireworks display on New Year’s Eve has been given the go-ahead meaning the year can end on a high!

The incredible firework and laser show is a highlight for many in Dubai. And it’s also big news on the global scene, with images and videos of the display making their way around the world.

Like most events in 2020, the New Year’s Eve show will be streamed live across the world from 8.30 pm. So you won’t need to deal with FOMO if you can’t get down.

Speaking of which, there will be very strict health and safety measures in place for the event. There will be thermal cameras and sanitisation stations as well as social distancing measures.

We also expect there will be very limited capacity compared to previous years. The DubaiLAD team haven’t heard anything official regarding numbers or crowd sizes yet but we’ll keep you posted.

“Delivering world-class experiences is part of Emaar’s DNA and this year we will deliver an even bigger gala event,” said Mohamed Alabbar, founder of Emaar.

“The world is facing challenges, but we are united, and we will come out of this year stronger than ever before. We want to send a message of hope, happiness and positivity into the world because that is the spirit of Dubai that we have learned from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who continues to inspire what we do with his extraordinary leadership. Here we reinvent ourselves, achieve the impossible and execute the unimaginable, and we are doing that again with Emaar NYE 2021.”
