New Year Celebration

The Official Barcelona New Year Countdown is a public family event and is free to attend.

The new year event takes place at the Font Màgica de Montjuïc (Montjuïc Magic Fountain) near Plaza Espanya and is a multimedia explosion of light and colour.

The event usually opens with music from 9.30pm. The New Year chimes show starts at 11.45 pm and lasts until 12.15

The celebration will consist of a main stage with big screens for the countdown and then a firework display at midnight.

The Barcelona New Year show event usually features traditonal human tower building, concerts, music and fireworks and is usually combined with the Magic Fountain light and water display but for 2023 this fountains are turned off due to drought restrictions.

IMPORTANT: This event is free. Usually, everyone arriving from 22.30 onwards gets a free bag of 12 grapes to eat as the chimes countdown to the New Year.

Alcohol is not on sale and glass bottles and glasses are not permitted in the spectators area.

There will be entrance checks to ensure that bottles and other glass containers are not brought in.

Please note that this is a New Year Celebration event but not a party. The organisers recommend that you arrive by metro to station Espanya - lines 1 & 3

After this event, there are many great NYE parties to go on to at Barcelona clubs. Find them on the pages below
