New Year’s Eve in Prato della Valle

Once again Prato della Valle will be the setting for the great celebrations organized in the city to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new one.

To make an event that has become a regular date even more special, there will be one of the most important names in the Italian hip hop scene: Fabri Fibra, who will perform in a concert and DJ sets making all the attending people dance and have fun.

This year the event of the Municipality of Padua – Department of Events (completely free) will be organized by Radio Company in collaboration with Future Vintage Festival, which in recent years has brought to Padua some outstanding names from the international music scene. If in recent years Giorgio Moroder and Bob Sinclar had performed in Piazza Garibaldi a few days before Christmas, this year it was decided to combine the performance of a great artist with the traditional New Year’s Eve party in Prato della Valle, the perfect location (both in terms of size and beauty) to host such an event.

The most awaited ingredients of New Year’s Eve won’t be missing: in addition to Fabri Fibra’s concert, the spectators of Prato della Valle will enjoy much music and entertainment, as well as beautiful fireworks. A great party that will last from 9 pm to 2 am and that will make you start your 2020 in the best possible way!
