Rock in Rio - The must-see musical event in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is never short of entertainment and emotions to offer the public. The Rock in Rio music festival is the best example of this, gathering millions of visitors every edition. This year, the month of September will once again host many artists, and Latin Exclusive offers to tell you more about it to make your stay in Rio perfect at that time. 


Created in 1985, the Rock in Rio festival has already attracted millions of people and promises each year a very attractive music scene. An initiative of Roberto Medina, an entrepreneur known for his visionary spirit, the first edition had no less than Queen as the headliner for the opening concert! Over the five days of the festival, more than one and a half million people (for comparison, that's five times the attendance of the Woodstock concerts!) rocked out to the sounds of the greatest artists of the time. Since then, the versions of Rock in Rio have followed one another, and a 250,000 square meter space, the Cidade do Rock, has been designed to receive all the fans in Barra da Tijuca, a southern district of Rio de Janeiro. Artists such as A-Ha, George Michael, Oasis, Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Red Hot Chilly Peppers, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Black Eyed Peas, Elton John and Shakira, to name a few, have performed there, not to mention the most popular Brazilian artists. With each edition, Rock in Rio has succeeded in growing, even expanding abroad to the cities of Lisbon, Madrid and Las Vegas. 



Although the festival originally offered a very rocky scene, its recent programming now also appeals to pop music fans. The 2022 version, which will take place between Friday 2 and Sunday 11 September, will feature artists such as Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, Guns N'Roses, Iron Maiden and Green Day. The festival has an excellent reputation thanks to the quality of its stage but also its organization and the security offered to visitors. In a gigantic space with several simultaneous concerts, visitors can enjoy the many parallel activities, shops, bars and food outlets in complete peace. 


As in previous editions, gourmets will not be left out of the 2022 edition! Chef Morena Leite will be in charge of the buffet menu in the VIP area, with her famous restaurant Capim Santo, which is well known in São Paulo and Trancoso. This should offer the greatest comfort to all visitors. Finally, to complete the musical experience and to make the most of the city during the festival period, Latin Exclusive offers a selection of exceptional properties for rent in the most beautiful areas of Rio de Janeiro. Its teams have the experience required to welcome the most demanding clients, as the agency even specialized in welcoming celebrities.
