The Dubai Fountain

A hypnotic exemplification of harmonious water, music and light choreography.

A captivating spectacle in Downtown Dubai, The Dubai Fountain is the world’s tallest performing fountain. The fountain has a unique design comprising five circles of varying sizes and two arcs, and features powerful water nozzles that shoot water up to impressive heights.

Some mind-boggling facts about The Dubai Fountain:

  • When operational, over 22,000 gallons of water is in the air at any given moment.
  • Jets of water reach heights of a 45-storey tower – that’s 500 feet!
  • Pillars of water are choreographed to ‘sway and dance’ to the rhythm of music.
  • Over 6,500 large fountain lights and 50 colour projectors create a visual spectrum of over 1,000 different water expressions.
  • The fountain stretches to a length of 900 feet – equivalent to two football fields.
