Dubai New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Live Stream, Webcams, Concerts, Parties, Hotels

Dubai, UAE, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Dubai Burj al Arab

Dubai is a place that likes to be at the centre of attention, so when New Years Eve comes around you can guarantee they'll be looking to throw the biggest, most eye-catching party in the area, and hoping to catch the eye of the world. They have the perfect centre piece for the celebrations with the dramatic and skyline dominating Burj Khalifa Tower, and this is the focal point for the midnight fireworks display that can be viewed right across the Emirate.

They have faced increasingly stern competition from near neighbours Abu Dhabi in recent years as the competition to be seen to host the most impressive and extravagant new year parties, and attract the biggest name performers (recent years have included shows by Snoop Dogg, Faithless and Armand Van Helden) and celebrities hots up, but it's likely this will only drive them to greater efforts so you can expect to see more and choices when it comes to thing to do over NYE in Dubai.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

The biggest party in town takes place at Downtown Dubai, where the crowds will welcome 2015 with a street party leading up to the spectacular midnight fireworks extravaganza. The event gets underway at 8pm and is free of charge. Most people will head for the area around the Burj Khalifa tower for the best views, or for a lucky few the At The Top outdoor observation deck will enjoy the most spectacular panoramic views available. The buildup to midnight takes place throughout the evening, with live music, performers and various entertainment on offer.

It does get very crowded around the Burj Khalifa though, so a lot of people choose to spend the evening at one of the hotels a little further out of town, where you can have a posh dinner, relaxing time and still get a good view of the fireworks in the distance. Popular choices for this option are the Park Hyatt Hotel and  Al Naforrah at the Emirates Towers. Another possibility, especially for those on a tighter budget, is to head for one of Dubai's beaches such as Sunset Beach and Kite Beach and watch the fireworks for free surrounded by the locals in a friendly and convivial atmosphere.

In the last few years one of the standout new year parties in Dubai has been a black tie gala event that has taken place on board the QE2 luxury liner, which has been sitting in dry dock in Port Rashid. However, it has now been announced that as of October 2013 the liner will be leaving Dubai to set sail for Shanghai where it is scheduled to be refitted as a luxury hotel, so it looks like that party at least will be off for 2015!

The big music party this year looks set to be Sandance NYE at Atlantis The Palm - headline acts this year are Swedish House Mafia star Axwell, DJ Paul Oakenfold and Emeli Sande, providing fantastic live music leading up to the massive midnight fireworks, which the organisers are boasting will be the biggest display in the world! Get tickets for this event here. Atlantis the Palm have also announced their intention to break the world record for a fireworks display this year, so it promises to be a truly spectacular evening....

There is a New Year's Eve Carnival Night at the Fortune Plaza Hotel, where their banquet hall will be utilising a Venetian theme for the night (next best thing to being in Venice itself I guess!) with a gala dinner and live music by DJ Praveen and DJ Lancy. More details and ticket information here.

Away from the main public events, if there is one thing Dubai is famous for it's the multitude of luxury hotels, and you'll have no problems at all finding a fantastic selection of parties to choose from. I like the look of the Bright White event at the Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah, which includes a gala buffet dinner in a luxurious marquee setting with live entertainment and front row view of the The Palm Jumeirah's midnight fireworks.

There is also a fabulous looking new year's eve party at Atlantis on The Palm, again with gala dinner, live entrtainment and a beachfront fireworks setting, while one of Dubai's most iconic venues, The Burj al Arab (pictured above) will also be hosting New Year’s Eve gala dinners in several of their restaurant venues - get full details here.

If you're looking for somewhere to dine before heading off to watch the fireworks then Dubai has a dizzying range of eateries to choose from, well over 5000 of them in total! It's difficult to pick only a few to recommend but top choices include Blue Jade, Sloane's, Armani Ristorante and Reflets by Pierre Gagnaire. Vegetarians and vegans are very well served here too, with Aadarsh, Sagneetha and Evergreen popular venues. See the full range of Dubai's culinary choices here. The Ivy Dubai also have a special new year evening planned, with fine dining and live music by Ciaran Fox.
