31 Dec Any plans for New Year’s Eve in Barcelona?
We would like to invite you to welcome the New Year in a wonderful place surrounded by thousands of people.
Barcelona will hold for the third consecutive time the arrival of the New Year with a show around the Magic Fountain. Technology and lighting effects will transform the four columns made by Puig i Cadafalch in a large clock that will welcome the New Year 2016 with fireworks and waterworks, all connected to percussion and Mediterranean melodies, where the sculpture of La Pedrera’s Lord, designed by Gaudí, will be virtually recreated and showed as a gear clock.
The performing scene will have a wide variety of artists: Pegasus, Perkutes de Canet, Manel Camp, Begoña Alberdi, Fiona Rycroft , the Demons of Capellades, The choir of Cap d’Any composed by twenty young people.
The diversity of voices and artists participating in the celebration of this year exemplify the desire to make a celebration with the participation of the citizens and visitors.
From 21.00h visitors in the area can already enjoy a music repertoire from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
At 23:30h ends the musical repertoire and five minutes afterwards will start the percussionist one, followed at 23:45h by fire shows, symbol of the Mediterranean.
At 23: 58h we will witness “Barcelona march into the future” just before the midnight, at the decisive moment of the chimes; the clock created by audiovisual technology will mark the countdown.
How to arrive:
The Magic Fountain can be found near to Montjuïc Mountain, and is located in Avinguda Maria Cristina, at the end of Espanya Square.
As the public transport will stay open all night long, we recommend you to use it, as taxis would be difficult to catch.
The easiest way to arrive by metro is using the green line (L3), which also is the closest one to our hotel, and get off in the stop ESPANYA.
What to DO?
We have left all our guests twelve grapes in their rooms that may eat during this special moment! In Espanya square, just one minute before the midnight, the twelve chimes will ring and you have to take the grapes one by one.
Don’t hesitate to attend; it will be an unforgettable moment!
