Imagine - the ultimate multimedia show
Updated on 01 February 2017

Dubai Festival City (DFC) has launched a first-of-its-kind attraction called Imagine. The innovative and spectacular multimedia show located within the unforgettable stage of Festival Bay, brings together elements such as light, water and fire to dramatic effect. The breathtaking new attraction transforms Festival Bay with its cutting edge, multi-media technology, producing the world’s largest permanent projection surface on the InterContinental Dubai Festival City, five times bigger than the world’s largest IMAX screen. The show creates a unique sensory experience, by harnessing the power of light, water, and fire, combined with giant aqua screens, 30 fountains and surround sound to connect with audiences and produce a show like never seen before. The free-to-attend daily shows are scheduled to run throughout the year with the main show running each night on the hour. Guests can also visit the restaurants at Festival City, many of which feature waterfront dining with the best views of the attraction, or simply enjoy the breathtaking show from any angle or focal point around Festival Bay.
