Sydney’s Opera House Each year an international artist is commissioned to project an original artwork on the iconic sails of Sydney’s Opera House as part of Vivid Sydney festival. The light show is where art, technology and music converge to an incredible display. Sydney organised its biggest ever display of fireworks and light show at the Opera House on the New Year’s eve in 2019. The multicolour light show was witnessed by over a million viewers.
Burj Khalifa Dubai welcomes New Year with a magnificent display of fireworks at the Burj Khalifa. The world’s tallest building is surrounded by spectacular light show and fireworks for thousands of spectators. The celebratory lights are integrated into the façade and spire of the tower. In 2019, the countdown to the midnight was projected on the iconic structure, followed by New Year greetings in Arabic and English. As the clock struck 12, the building dazzled in a breathtaking display of light and fireworks show. This year in Downtown Dubai, the iconic landmark will celebrate New Year’s eve with a grand light and laser show. The event shall be broadcasted live globally at mydubainewyear.com
The World Towers by Lodha Group This Diwali, The World Towers was lit up with 8000 LEDs as a symbol of hope and new beginnings. The idea behind lighting up was to put an end to the gloom and spread positivity in the hearts and minds of people. The iconic landmark perfectly fits the testament of the spirit of Mumbai, always rising above, against all odds. It is a symbol of India's proud new footing in the world, an ode to the country's coming of age as a serious player on the world stage. The stunning lightshow on The World Towers, reminiscent of those seen on iconic buildings across the world, lit up the night sky and became the talk of the town.
