A swarm of 300 drones will lift off each night of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) for wonderful performances filled with light and sound. Taking place above Bluewaters, the nightly DSF Drone Light Show will run for 45 days in a row throughout the festival, making it the longest consecutively held show of its kind in the Middle East, Europe and Africa.
Residents and visitors can enjoy two great performances, each featuring different animations, every evening from 17 December to 30 January, with the drones first taking flight for a show at 7pm and at 9.30pm for a different show. Each performance will last four minutes and is free to watch.
The first show, titled ‘Dubai, A City of Adventure’, will show how there’s so much to see and do in Dubai, with everyone’s favourite characters Modesh and Dana going on a journey to explore what the city has to offer.
Show two, titled ‘Dubai, From the Past to the Present’ will show the city’s journey from old Dubai to new Dubai, where it started and where it is headed into the future, with the official DSF song by Rashed Al Majed, ‘Dubai Kawkab Aakhar’ which translates to ‘Dubai is another planet’.
Audiences can also watch the daily DSF Drone Light Shows from the waterfront restaurants and cafes at Bluewaters, with the venues providing a super view of the drones and an amazing panoramic view of the Dubai skyline. Advance booking at each venue is advised.
