What will be the front page stories in Spain in 2015? And who, or what, will hog the limelight? The Local has gazed into the crystal ball to make predictions about what the country can expect in the year to come.


2014 was a year of surprises in Spanish news. From the rise of new-kid-on-the-block political party Podemos to the abdication of Spain’s King Juan Carlos, the year brought with it a host of news stories few would have predicted. 

Then there were the stories that never seem to go away: the economy, corruption and Catalonia’s bid for independence dominated headlines, and will continue to do so well into the new year.

But what other news should we look out for in 2015? Will Spain’s young new king bring the monarchy well into the 21st century?  What will happen in the hotly anticipated general elections towards the end of the year?

And perhaps most importantly, will Spain ever win Eurovision?!
