Iconic Coca Cola sign put up on Dubai’s new live entertainment arena
Dubai is no newbie to ‘first’, ‘largest’ or ‘tallest’ titles. The latest addition to the landscape, Coca Cola Arena, is another venue with superlative adjectives to add to Dubai’s ever-growing list. Coca Cola Arena, a multi-purpose indoor venue that can comfortably host 17,000 people is the largest indoor climate-controlled venue in the region.
In April, we got a sneak peek into the mammoth venue that will host its very first live show on June 6 – just two days away. The venue can accommodate 5,000 people on the 86mx45m arena bowl floor area, 5,000 on level one, 5,000 on level four and 1,500-2,000 in the VIP suite halls.
In preparation for the first show this weekend, the venue got a pretty big final touch – a sparkling new sign standing tall at a height of 5.37 metres with a total of 2685 LEDs attached to the iconic calligraphy of the brand.
For June 6
For those readers who have already picked up tickets to the weekend show, the organisers have a few tips. Since public parking is not available on the venue, a ‘park and ride’ facility has been organised. This must be pre-booked in advance by calling 04 215 3000 with the pick-up point opposite Safa Park and Medcare Hospital. The closest metro stop is the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall metro station which is just short walk away.
