Each show was sketched out to last around five minutes. The first show is inspired by a day-in-the-life of a tourist in Dubai. The show begins by depicting a tourist flying into the UAE and landing at Dubai International Airport, before experiencing a journey through the famous iconic sites of the Dubai Shopping Festival, including its iconic fireworks and the Festival of Light.

The second show  – based on “Future of Dubai,” – gives audience an immersive glimpse into Dubai two decades from now. Set in 2040, the forward-looking experience gives onlookers a glimpse of what Dubai might look like as the city propels into a trailblazing tomorrow.

The 3D production uses cutting-edge technology including AR headsets, 500 drones, and two pilots to illustrate the story of Dubai. The Middle East’s longest running Drone Light Show is an unmissable highlight of the season, and of all, the show is free to watch!
