The Brief


SKYMAGIC and Phil Grucci, CEO & Creative Director of Fireworks by Grucci, collaborated to deliver a captivating drone light show and firework performance for the New Year’s Eve celebrations.



The Outcome

Breaking two Guinness World Records for the ‘Longest chain of fireworks’ and the ‘Longest straight line of fireworks’ – we deployed 200 performance drones to display a mesmerising drone countdown.

Scenes such as the tribute to Sheikh Zayed were displayed within a 100m space in the sky accented by colourful bursts of fireworks. A sweeping display of a falcon spreading its wings emphasised the heritage of the Emirate.
