The popular destination Dubai Fountain has restarted its outdoor musical shows, so if you’ve been looking forward to the stunning performances you can have to miss out.
The world-famous Dubai Fountain shows restarted on Saturday June 6 and will run nightly from 18:00, with the last show at 21:00. With stringent health and safety measures followed in places, including social distancing, it is to ensure visitors’ safety.
The Dubai Fountain can spray up to 22,000 gallons of water into the air at a time, making for a stunning show set up in Downtown Dubai. Masks must be worn in public places in Dubai. Malls are now able to operate at 100 percent capacity, but there are regulations in place.
The world’s largest choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, at the center of the Downtown Dubai by Emaar. The fountain shoots water jets as high as 500 ft (150 metres), equivalent to that of a 50-storey building. The fountain is 900 ft (275 metres) long and has five circles of varying sizes and two central arcs. It has been designed by California-based WET, the creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.
The Dubai Fountain performs daily, with the performance repertoire including Sama Dubai; Baba Yetu, an award-winning song in Swahili; the Arab world’s top-selling dance number Shik Shak Shok; and the signature piece of world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, Con te partiro (Time to Say Goodbye). More than 6,600 WET Superlights – the advanced incandescent large fountain lights are available today with 25 colour projectors create a visual spectrum of over 1,000 abstract attractions. The spectacular beam of light shining upward from the fountain can be seen from over 20 miles away, and will be visible from space making it the brightest spot in the Middle East, and quite possibly in the entire world.
