Dubai welcomes 2014 with world record fireworks show

 
 
Dubai dazzled the world on New Year’s Eve with what a record-breaking fireworks show, featuring the explosion of more than 400,000 fireworks, considered to be the largest in the world.
 
The world's tallest tower, the 828-metre Burj Khalifa, provided a stunning backdrop for the display.

The Guinness World Records staff later labeled it the largest ever. The show blew Kuwait's world record out of the water when last year it set off 77,000 fireworks over 64 minutes.
 
The main displays were based at the luxurious Atlantis hotel and at Palm Jumeirah, one of three palm-shaped islands.
 
 
The performance required about 100 computers to synchronise the pyrotechnics, along with a choreographed musical soundtrack.

More than 200 expert technicians put in 5,000 hours of work to ensure that the fireworks’ timing was accurate down to the millisecond.
 
Sydney had the first of the world's major pyrotechnic shows, with seven tonnes of explosives lighting up Australia's biggest city.
