The entire city will light up at the stroke of midnight, and the best experience is guaranteed from Atlantis The Palm.
Dubai’s iconic fireworks can be enjoyed from ten locations including Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, La Mer, Al Seef, the Beach, Dubai Frame, Global Village, the Pointe, Dubai Festival City Mall, and Atlantis, The Palm.
While all locations have a line-up of special events, with Global Village celebrating New Year with seven different fireworks shows for seven different countries, Atlantis, The Palm will boast a surreal experience with a 30-piece-live band on the ground of the hotel. The vibe will be that of the “roaring” 1920s’ so expect to go on full Gatsby mode. The lavish dinner gala will begin with champagnes and canapes, a luxury buffet, and unbeatable Atlantis Fireworks.
After midnight, it only gets better. The gates of White Beach will be flung open and Grammy winner Ne-Yo will perform all his hit songs, live, in the backdrop of the Dubai skyline and fireworks.
