Spectacular drone show lights up sky for Dubai Shopping Festival

A choreographed display of 500 drones came together to form دبي (Dubai in Arabic), as part of the Dubai Shopping Festival Drone Light Show.

The photos were shared by Government of Dubai Media office on Twitter.

Residents and visitors can watch the show live every night until January 29th, 2023 at Bluewaters, The Beach, and JBR.

The DSF said that the longest-running drone light show in the region will feature all-new choreography from the most advanced 3D drones as well as new music composed especially for the performances during the festival.

It also said, “Enjoy 46 consecutive days of a high-tech production celebrating the Dubai Shopping Festival, with twice-nightly performances of two spectacular shows. Each show is free to attend although you might want to get there early to secure the best vantage points for you or your family and friends.”
