Dubai: There have been reports that a light show will replace the fireworks display at Burj Khalifa to ring in the New Year.

Around 2am on Thursday morning, a Gulf News videographer captured the testing of the Burj Khalifa light show from a distance. 

Look closely and you can see the different colours that you might expect on the big night. 

“Say goodbye to the old and hello to the new as we #LightUp2018 in Downtown Dubai this #MayDubaiNewYear,” Emaar’s social media post reads.
