Barcelona 2014 New Years Eve Fireworks Event

START: 23.30 END: 00.15 hours

Barcelona is finally promoting itself as New Year’s destination, with fireworks in 2014 (400k€ worth).
To compete with other cities in the world
(e.g New years even in London, New York, Sydney, Paris, Berlin)
Though not a festival or party and largely to attract international TV

Mon Bus Times to Plaza Espanya (Montjuic)
(often every 30 mins from Sitges Can Robert Park: 00:55 to get home to Sitges: approx 1 hour)
Please check all info (as we cannot guarantee they run!)

  • Centre stage will be Mil·leni de Gavà, a fifteen meters high figure which “represents the spirit of this city”
  • Two large screens will project the image of the clock
  • “Volcano of fire” fireworks will explode consecutively with each second approaching midnight
  • Culminating with large explosion behind the magic fountains & 7 minutes of fireworks
  • Bells, Chimes & Ambient Music (Artístic Director Carles Padrissa La Fura dels Baus)
  • Family friendly event (no booze being sold or glass bottles, but plastic cups ok) and locals friendly (no music after the show)
  • Arriving before 21:00 hrs is being recommended

Supported by:

  • Mayor of Barcelona (alcalde de Barcelona) Xavier Trias
  • City of Barcelona Tourism (President : Joan Gaspart)
  • Fira de Barcelona (Josep Lluís Bonet)
  • The Chamber of Commerce
  • Hotel Association (President : Jordi Clos)
  • Movistar

To compliment ancient customs, such as, eating 12 grapes as clocks chime midnight and making a wish (since 1895, a abundant harvest year for grapes)

BE SAFE:
Remain on guard against pickpockets, a ridiculous problem for visitors and locals alike. Especially in the queue whilst getting on a bus, as close proximity allows for scrum bag thieves to dip your pockets and bags.
Being drunk around the Gothic area, is a sign for muggers, often in groups (as too many friends have experienced)
