Rock in Rio

At multiple times the most-attended music festival in the world, Rock in Rio attracts an enormous crowd all vying to see their music idols in the flesh. It is held in several countries in the cities of Madrid, Lisbon, Buenos Aires, Lima as well as Rio de Janeiro. In 2012 it will be held in Lisboa and Madrid to finally go back to its original land and hold a massive event in Rio in 2013. ..........................................................................................................................................

Rock in Rio Rio de Janeiro
1985 was the birth of the Rock in Rio tradition,
with the audacity of 1980s rock brought on such a huge scale to Brazil for the first time. Legendary performers such as Queen and AC/DC strutted across the stage in front of 1.5 million people over the course of the ten-day festival.

For 2013 a fourth city will be added to the line-up with the premier of Rock in Lima, followed by the addition of Rock in Buenos Aires in 2014. The founder of the event, the Brazilian entrepreneur Roberto Medina, has watched his idea grown into a South American, and now European, phenomenon bringing masses of music fans of all types to the already-bustling party city of Rio de Janeiro.
