I was lucky to catch the ‘Light Up 2018’ laser show while in Dubai this month. The Guinness World Record-breaking laser show was on repeat after its first showing during last New Years Eve. Seeing it for the first time in real life really wowed me. The Burj Khalifa is spectacular by itself, but seeing it by night with lasers coming off of every angle is on another level. It’s simply crazy. I made it my mission to capture the show from different angles to show its beauty before it would be gone by the end of this month.


Show Full Text

The laser show doesn’t only consist of lasers. Graphics are also beamed at one side of the Burj Khalifa along with some surrounding buildings. The show highlights the year of the Zayed (2018) with a portrait of UAE’s founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan.

Here’s a photo series I put together after photographing the laser show from different perspectives.

If you want to go and see the laser show yourself, you have until the end of this month (if they don’t extend it). Showing are Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday at 8 PM and Thursday and Friday at 10 PM. There’s no laser show on Sunday. Best place to see it is simply right in front of Burj Khalifa at the fountains.
