NYE 2023: Burj Khalifa fireworks, Dubai Fountain show, Emaar reveals plans

As the excitement builds for Dubai’s biggest New Year’s Eve celebration, Emaar Properties has revealed what went into the creation of its spectacular NYE 2023 show that will unfold in Downtown Dubai.

The visual composition on the Burj Khalifa’s facade was designed by a crew of technicians throughout 671 working days.

An increase from previous seasons, 325 firing positions in this year’s show have been choreographed to create “a breathtaking spectacle in the sky”, according to a statement by the company.

More than 2,800 shooting directions will transform the night sky on NYE 2023 into an intricate pattern of colours and shapes, featuring lasers, lights, and fireworks.

According to Emaar, 15,682 pyrotechnic elements will be featured in the performance; each will have a distinct firing sequence coordinated using state-of-the-art computer technology.

Dubai Fountain is also set to thrill visitors the year. Under the direction of Peter Kopik, WET’s chief choreographer who has nearly three decades of experience in fountain choreography, this year’s Dubai Fountain show will feature water artistry, light, and sound, all timed and synchronised with Burj Khalifa’s display. 

 The show features over a thousand MiniShooters creating dynamic water sequences, dozens of HyperShooters and XtremeShooters propelling water up to 150 metres, and hundreds of Oarsmen and Fan Oarsmen to bring the show to life. 

More than 6,600 lights and 127 strobe strings will illuminate the water, while 6,700 fog nozzles will create a breathtaking misty atmosphere.
