Here’s another reason to head to Downtown Dubai…

Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world and is a sight to behold just as is. But, it also bares the largest LED screen in the world which makes it the perfect canvas for adding some bright colours to the Dubai skyline.

A new show has been announced titled, ‘World of Colour’ which will paint and illuminate Downtown Dubai in a kaleidoscope of colours using lights and lasers.

There are shows five days a week. From Wednesday to Friday, there are two shows that take place, the first at 7.45pm and the second at 9.45pm. On the (new) weekend, Saturday and Sunday, there are three shows taking place at 7.45pm, 8.15pm and 9.45pm.

World of Colour’s light and colour performance will be paired with stunning video content which will see vibrant colours splashing around the world’s largest LED screen. The show, we’ve been told, will boast the same vibrant energy and beauty that you would have caught during the jaw-dropping New Year’s Eve fireworks and laser show.

Burj Khalifa shared a glimpse of the magic on their Instagram account:
