There’s not long left to catch it…

The Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) calendar features an action-packed line-up of concerts, festivals and pop-ups alongside the string of incredible money saving deals. And one of the star attractions – the drone light show – has been lighting up skies since December 8.

But if you haven’t seen the drone show yet, which lights up the skies at Bluewaters and The Beach opposite JBR, take note: it’s only running until January 14, 2024. This year there are two all-new displays taking place at 8pm and 10pm each evening.

The 800-piece drone shows illuminate the skies with a symphony of colours and shapes, telling two exciting new stories through the pretty display.

Show one, titled “Fairytale Fusion with Emirati Culture” combines the magic of fairytales with rich Emirati culture, weaving narratives of local traditions with enchanting fairytales.


The second show, called “Illustration of Dubai in the Future,” follows an Emirati space explorer as he heads into the future. With an amalgam of light and motion, watch as the drones take the space explorer into a world of what Dubai might look like in years to come.
