The Burj Khalifa is set to illuminate Downtown Dubai with a new collection of five-minute laser and light shows. The shows will be choreographed to music and run over the next three months until March 31.

The shows will each follow a different theme: dreams, geometrics, kaleidoscope, retro futuristic and Chinese New Year. They will take place from Tuesday to Saturday at 7.45pm and 9.45pm. The Chinese New Year show will run from February 12 to 20 to celebrate the Year of the Ox.

Famous faces on the Burj Khalifa

This week, the world’s tallest building had Rihanna’s face projected on to the side of it for the launch of her new skincare brand Fenty Skin, as well as the pop-up of Fenty Skin Island at The Dubai Mall Promenade.

However, the Umbrella singer is not the first to have her image projected on to the Burj Khalifa. In December, BTS member V had his face projected in celebration of his 25th birthday, after a fan club China raised funds to make it happen.

In November, the landmark lit up to celebrate the 55th birthday of Bollywood legend Shah Rukh Khan, who was in Dubai for the occasion.

In the past, South Korean boyband Exo have also seen their image appear on the building, along with the entire Kolkata Knight Riders team.
