The festivities are beginning on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro as the FiveCurrents team, led by Scott Givens, prepares to ring in the New Year with 2 million revelers. FiveCurrents is producing Reveillon 2010 which includes live entertainment, a samba performance, “New Year’s Wishes,” and a fireworks spectacular that will be broadcast live, internationally, on TV Globo. The entire 4 kilometer beach has one sound system, simulcast on radio, and synched to a huge fireworks show from nine ocean barges.
News reports from Rio say that Brazil hosting the 2014 World cup and Rio, the 2016 Olympic Games, will positively impact this year’s Reveillon, making it bigger than ever before. For more information on Reveillon 2010, please visit http://reveillondecopa.com.
