Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 31 December 2014, Midnight

It has been a very big year for Brazil, and Rio in particular, with the World Cup 2014 having been to the country. There was some controversy among the local population about the cost of hosting the tournament and the lack of apparent long term benefits to the people when it actually rolled around they did for the most part embrace it whole heartedly, their own team's lacklustre performance notwithstanding.

With this new year party drawing a close to such a big year for the Brazilians then we can expect it to be remembered with particular gusto at a new year's eve party that is already one of the biggest around.

The New Year (Ano Novo in Portugeuse, or in Brazilian Portuguese, Réveillon), is one of the main holidays across the whole of Brazil and in Rio for many people involves heading down to the city's famous and iconic Copacabana beach, where crowds numbered literally in the millions gather to celebrate the occasion, making it easily one of the biggest new year's eve parties anywhere in the world.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings


The beach at Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro is the focal point of much of the celebrations with a large fireworks display at midnight that can be seen all along the coastline for miles around - head up to the higher ground for a truly spectacular panoramic view. The beach itself is over 4 miles long so can host a heck of a party, and it is estimated that around 2 million revellers congregate there each year.

There were rumours this year that Madonna will sing on the New Year eve in Brazil and they do generally secure some big name acts - we'll bring you confirmation of any that are due in town for the NYE 2014-2015 party.

One of the top New Year's Eve parties in Rio de Janeiro is again set to be the Réveillon on Sugarloaf 2015. The party will feature music from local and international DJs, along with a fantastic buffet meal, plus of course plenty of champagne!
