The Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain will light up for the Eid holidays with special LED shows being planned over the long weekend.
UAE residents and visitors will witness a brand new Burj Khalifa light show, which will be choreographed to a special track titled ‘Esmaha Dubai’, a song written by Emirati music composer and director Mohamed Al Ahmed, which will make its big debut.
The show will take place at 8pm every night over the long weekend.
Burj Khalifa isn’t the only venue that will light up for Eid festivities. The Dubai Fountain, a landmark in its own right, will also dance to the tunes of ‘Esmaha Dubai’ by Al Ahmed, with the world’s tallest tower illuminating as a perfect backdrop.
The Dubai Fountain sequence will also play out every night over the Eid break at 8pm.
