Dubai’s Downtown area is set to stage a new water, fire and light show incorporating The Dubai Fountain and elements used in the New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The show, sponsored by Emirates Airline, narrates the story of cultural elements from across the world coming together and will run until February 4 at 20:00 and 22:00 daily.

The 'Water, Fire & Light' show will feature 79 artists beamed on a 210m long screen and several water platforms with semi-transparent screens.

“The show is a reflection of Dubai’s cosmopolitan spirit, and is a perfect complement to the city’s growing ambitions of driving economic growth through varied initiatives,” said Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, senior vice president for commercial operations at Emirates Airline.

A record 1.7m visitors turned out to watch the Downtown Dubai New Year’s Eve Gala. The event, which was streamed to reach over 2bn people, included fireworks synchronised and choreographed to a live performance by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
