“Spring Dance in Xi’an”: A Thousand Drones Light Show over the Xi’an City Wall

At 20:30 on May 1st, a light show of a thousand drones over the Xi’an City Wall with the theme of “Spring Dance in Great Xi’an” was held at the Yongning Gate (South Gate Square) of the Xi’an City Wall, displaying a feast of light and shadow and a show of fantasy.

Xi’an, a city that combines ancient elements with modern styles and a city that has drawn the attention of the whole country, rocked the nation with a light show of a thousand drones on this year’s Labor Day.

The light show consisted of 1,374 drones, symbolizing the cooperative development of 74 countries along the “Belt and Road”. Through the flight formation and control, the drones formed into ten patterns of Chinese characters such as “一带一路” (the “Belt and Road”), “改革开放四十周年” (40th Anniversary of Reform and Opening-up) and “奔跑吧西安” (Running Xi’an), bringing an eye feast for the visitors. The show has been certificated by the Guinness World Records as “the largest number of unmanned aerial vehicles flying simultaneously”.
