Expect live music, fireworks, food trucks and family fun on Al Maryah Island this New Year’s Eve.

A total of 8,000 people are expect to descend on the capital business and lifestyle destination to see in 2016.

Celebrations will kick off at 6pm on December 31, with a live feed throughout the evening, in Abu Dhabi Global Market Square, showcasing NYE celebrations from across the globe.

Ali Eid AlMheiri, executive director of Mubadala Real Estate and Infrastructure, said: “We’re excited to once again be welcoming guests and residents of Abu Dhabi to Al Maryah Island to celebrate the New Year in style.

“We have a fantastic line up of entertainment, food and fireworks, all set against our stunning island backdrop. There will be no better place to start 2016 and I for one can’t wait to join the festivities.”

To avoid congestion, the promenade will be kept pram and stroller free – however a stroller car park will be set-up so spectators with young children can store their prams securely and join the celebrations.
