Biggest, Tallest, Largest – are all synonymous with Dubai. The glittering Middle Eastern city has announced its plans to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Firework Display.

Currently, another Middle Eastern city holds the Guinness World Record for the largest firework display.

The State of Kuwait celebrated their 50th anniversary of the Constitution in a spectacular style held in Kuwait City, Kuwait, on 10 November 2012. The 77,282 fireworks display stretched over 5 km (3.11 miles) of seafront, started at 8 p.m. and lasted 64 minutes, which included the pyrotechnic display and a lights and sound show.

Dubai’s planned extraordinary pyrotechnic display on 31 December will aim to light up the city’s skyline with spectacular firework displays will last for only six minutes, but five times bigger and will contain 400,000 shots of fireworks that will be synchronised with music.

The dazzling show will start with a display choreographed across the whole of The Palm Jumeirah and the islands of The World. The sheer magnitude of the performance is expected to be remarkable with over 200 expert pyro technicians, 400 firing locations and 100 computers networked to control the show down to the millisecond.

The world record breaking attempt will cover a distance of approximately 100 kilometres of seafront, with an attempt to feature over 400,000 colourful fireworks, a series of amazing scenes designed exclusively for this event.

Designed by U.S. firm Fireworks by Grucci — who also designed the fireworks display for the launch of Atlantis in 2008, and the fireworks extravaganza during Dubai’s Expo 2020 bid win announcement — the show will feature a ‘Flying Falcon’ doing rounds of The World islands, a 225 metre wide and 130 metre high UAE flag — which itself could be another world record attempt for the largest pyrotechnic flag ever. The show will then end with the final salvo of fireworks that will light up a ‘Sunrise’ scene for 10 kilometres.
