Opening ceremony of Dubai Expo 2020
The star-studded opening ceremony for Dubai Expo 2020 will be broadcast live to over 430 sites across the UAE, allowing anybody to take part in the extravaganza regardless of where they are.
Three spectacular fireworks displays will be held in Dubai the following night, marking the first full day of the Expo in a spectacular visual celebration honoring the journey from winning the bid in 2013 to the opening.
Opening ceremony watching parties will be held around the country on Thursday, thanking the country for its support and encouraging everyone to join together to honor this historic occasion.
Screens will be placed up in a variety of locations, including airports, retail malls, hotels, and other landmarks, to broadcast the spectacular music and cultural events live.
World-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli, Grammy-nominated actress, singer, and songwriter Andra Day, platinum-selling British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding, worldwide megastar pianist Lang Lang, and four-time Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo are among those set to perform.
