The end of the European Capital of Culture with Sylwester Wrocławski

Over 60 000 people gathered on the Market Square together with countless more in front of their TVs, radio receivers and computer screens to welcome the New Year in Wrocław and have fun at the largest open-air club in Europe! Two stages, multimedia show and the star of the evening - Mr. Sylwester Wrocławski. In 2016 - the year of the European Capital of Culture - residents of Wrocław listened to music played by... other residents of Wrocław, and the New Year’s Eve concert was definitely one of the best cultural events in the history of the city.

This year’s edition of New Year’s Eve celebrations in Wrocław was certainly unique, mainly due to Mr. Sylwester Wrocławski - the star of the celebrations concluding the year of the European Capital of Culture in Wrocław. Under this pseudonym, many outstanding artists connected with the city performed during the New Year’s Eve celebration for the audience gathered in the Market Square, which was transformed into the largest open-air music club in Europe, with two stages and live music without playback! The performances were accompanied by a picturesque video-mapping on the walls of the Market Square’s townhouses and special lighting effects. During the celebrations, the audience could also watch music videos of the greatest moments and most prominent events of the European Capital of Culture 2016, including the Opening Ceremony, the World Jazz Day, the European Night of Literature, David Gilmour’s concert or the Flow multi-performance.

Wrocław decided to go with... Wrocław!
During the celebration on the Market Square we could hear only artists connected with Wrocław. The two stages - raised according to the idea of the event’s director, Konrad Imiela - symbolised the “Heart” and the “Brain” of Sylwester Wrocławski. The atmosphere during the event was heated up by rock bands Frühstück and Blade Loki, followed by charismatic singers of MILOOPA and Mikromusic, the stars of the Capitol Musical Theatre, Alicja Janosz, Mesajah, L.U.C. with Rebel Babel Ensemble and the lively Girls on Fire. At midnight sharp both stages connected in a symbolic way and the audience could listen to “Show Must Go On”, accompanied by effective visualisations and pyrotechnics. The programme of the celebration was concluded by the Great Gong Concert, the largest concert of dozens of enormous Tibetan gongs in Poland.

New Year’s Eve in Wrocław in TV, radio and on the internet
New Year's Eve celebrations in Wrocław attracted not only people who came to the Market Square, but also the viewers of Telewizja WP, the new terrestrial television channel, as well as the audience of Radio Wrocław and Radio RAM. The collaboration of Wrocław and Wirtualna Polska paved the way for many new technologies, as the New Year’s Eve concert was broadcast in traditional media, as well as on the internet, accompanied by additional attractions, such as SMS contest with prizes - an SUV and trips abroad.

The European Capital of Culture - forevermore.
The New Year’s Eve celebration was the official conclusion of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016, but that does not mean that the ECoC ended there and then. “The city will remain the capital of culture even after midnight - in 2017, 18, 19... As many outstanding artists wished and suggested in the past, since - as you could see throughout the last year - Wrocław is truly a city of culture. And thanks to you it will remain its European capital - forevermore. Happy New Year!”, said Krzysztof Maj, general director of the ECoC Wrocław 2016.
