Inside this year's New Year's Eve fireworks display at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai

After announcing in October that fireworks are returning to the Burj Khalifa for New Year's Eve, Emaar has released a sneak peek of the show– and it's looking incredible.

The "fascinating spectacle" will shepherd in 2019 at the tallest building in the world, with the developers promising it will be "bigger, better and brighter" than ever before.

It will feature "spellbinding" fireworks, LED shows and laser displays lighting up the sky in front of hundreds of thousands of spectators.

The event will be beamed to television screens around the world and onto big screens in Downtown Dubai.

Officials had previously replaced the massive December 31 display with a laser light show amid safety concerns.

But in October, Emaar announced that the fireworks will be coming back alongside a spectacular New Year's Eve Gala featuring special Dubai Fountain performances.

Dubai is known for its unmissable and unmistakable fireworks displays at the turn of the year.

Having set world records in the past, it’s not surprising that this city becomes an even bigger tourist attraction as New Year’s Eve approaches, with international visitors flocking to town to witness the show-stopping pyrotechnics.

There will also be special viewing platforms to give crowds all over a good view of the celebrations. More details will be released closer to the time.

It's going to be an incredible New Year's Eve.
