The biggest and most beautiful draw to Barcelona on New Year’s Eve, Nochevieja, is definitely the event held at the Fuente Mágica.

From 9:30 pm on 31 December, the city sees the year out with one of the biggest international pyrotechnic and firework shows on Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina.

This stunning and original show is provided by Group F, an internationally renowned company specialising in large-format shows, such as the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympic Games.

As the event comes closer to the countdown the display recounts the last 12 months and takes a trip to various places where the year has already come in. Then, when the 12 chimes of midnight strike, an eruption of fireworks and flames will welcome in the new year. In a poetic ending to the show, the 12 months of 2019 will be congratulated with 12 wishes, one for each month of 2020, along with images that evoke the natural world.

With the artistic vision of Christophe Berthonneau and electro and electroacoustic music from Scott Gibbons, written especially for the occasion, the show will have an original soundtrack, 125 flame and pyrotechnic generators, a 15-metre high cylinder as the screen, and illuminated characters suspended from zip lines that will pass over the Magic Fountain going in the opposite direction.
