This will be the biggest party on the night of New Year’s Eve in Wroclaw. On 31st December, 120 musicians, vocalists, choir members, acrobats and dancers will appear on stage on the Wroclaw Market Square. The party will start at 8:00 p.m.
“Wroclaw Respect” is this year’s slogan of the New Year’s Eve party on the Wroclaw Market Square. The organisers invite people of various nationalities, cultures, religions and races to arrive in Wroclaw – the city awarded with the title of European Best Destination 2018.
The star of the New Year’s Eve party will be the Village People band – we will certainly hear a number of great hits, such as Y.M.C.A., Go West, Macho Man or In the Navy. During the approaching New Year’s Eve, the Village People will celebrate the 40th anniversary of this hit. Wroclaw inhabitants will try to attack the European record – the organisers want to gather 40,000 people to dance with the band around the city hall.
The show starts at 8:00 p.m., but entrance to the zone near the stage is possible already from 7:30 p.m. – all gates will be opened at that time. It is worth being one of the first to reach this zone, because such persons will receive a beautiful evening scarf as a keepsake.
Musicians, choir, vocalists, dancers, choir – over 100 persons altogether. This great band will create an incredible setting of the party from the very beginning till 1:00 a.m. The repertoire will consist of popular, recognised and anticipated hits: from Pink Floyd to Bruno Mars.
Before the midnight, the organisers invite you to have a good time together to the rhythm of the greatest hits:
Energetic vocalists from Wroclaw and Poland known from TV talent shows have been invited to perform great hits. Among them there will be: Natalia Lubrano, Aro Kłusowski, Anna Maria Mbayo, Daniel Moszczyński, Marta Kołodziejczyk, Mikołaj Woubishet, Kasia Mirowska.
On that night of 31st December, we will welcome the New Year every hour – at 9:00 p.m., 10:00 p.m., 11:00 p.m. and obviously at midnight. During the show to be held in Wroclaw, a few other time zones will welcome the New Year, too.
The Zdrój fountain, closed in winter, will become one of the elements of New Year’s Eve scenography. Reflectors, lamps, lasers, stroboscopes and smoke machines will be placed in the middle. A few dozen dancers and acrobats will perform in the fountain.
When you come to the Market Square, you will see the longest catwalk in Poland connecting the stage with the fountain, which will bring performers closer to the more distant part of the audience.
The crowd of many thousand people will be inspired to sign and dance together by the Wroclaw MC and radio & TV presenter Paweł Gołębski.
As in previous years, Wroclaw will not organise a fireworks show during the New Year’s Eve concert on the Market Square. This year, the originators of the campaign “Wroclaw Does Not Shoot” will go a step further!
On New Year’s Eve, Wroclaw invites everyone who shares such values as openness and tolerance, because “Wroclaw Respect” is for everyone.
Therefore, the participants are encouraged to give up shooting fireworks and to believe that a good party can do without the noise of firecrackers, which will certainly be proven by artists, the event director Paweł Gołębski and other organisers of the New Year’s Eve party.See details
