When it comes to New Year’s Eve, the Burj Khalifa fireworks have become an iconic celebration in their own right – easily rivalling well-established New Year’s Eve traditions around the world. More than a million people descended into Downtown Dubai on December 31st to watch the world-famous annual fireworks display live, whilst another 6 million have since logged on to view the iconic event on YouTube.

The Burj Khalifa fireworks, which are choreographed to dance across the full 830 metres of the world’s tallest building have placed Dubai at the very top of the most anticipated New Year’s Eve countdowns across the world which include the likes of the Sydney Harbour Bridge fireworks, the London's Big Ben fireworks and New York’s time Square celebrations. And with this New Year’s Eve marking the onset of a brand new decade, the world tuned in to watch what was, without a doubt, one of the most spectacular fireworks displays we have ever seen.
