Welcome to Qatar

Welcome to Qatar is a must-see for all during the tournament, featuring the Circle of Lights – a shimmering circle suspended above the water that transforms to poetically narrate wonderful stories.

Throughout the afternoon dancing water fountains bring the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Official Soundtrack to life. When the sun goes down a stunning symphony of pyrotechnics, drones and water effects lights the sky – all set to an original orchestral score.

Shows take place daily at 3 PM, 3.30 PM, 4 PM, 4.30PM, 5 PM and 5.30 PM before the final vibrant show with an impressive fireworks display at 9 PM.

Beginning 25 November, timings will change slightly with the first show starting at 4 PM, running every half hour until 6:30 PM with the final show lighting the sky at 9 PM.
