World’s largest dancing fountain

Dubai Fountain "Con te partirò" (Time to Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman)

Dubai Fountain "Con te partirò" (Time to Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman)




The Dubai Fountain is a record-setting choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, at the center of the Downtown Dubai development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was designed by WET Design, the California-based company responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors, it is 275 m (902 ft) long and shoots water 150 m (490 ft) into the air (equivalent to a 50-story building), accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. It was built at a cost of AED 800 million (USD 218 million). 
The Dubai Fountains project water in the air in many different combinations and patterns. The beam of light from the fountain can be seen from over 20 miles away.
The fountain is animated with performances set to light and music. It is visible from every point on the lake promenade and from many neighboring structures. Performances take place every 20 minutes from 6 pm to 10 pm on weekdays, and from 6 pm to 11 pm on weekends.
