TOP LIVE EVENTS
Rock in Rio is a music festival event that started, as the name helpfully
suggests, in Rio de Janeiro back in 1985 and that has been the main
home ever since, although the festival does move location, in particular
to the current shared location of Lisbon in Portugal, where is has been
taking place on a bi-annual basis since 2004, while in some years there
have actially been more than one version of the festival taking place
internationally, with the introduction of venues including Madrid and
the very first Rock in Rio USA in 2015.
Rock in Rio is one of the biggest festivals anywhere in the world, with attendances of over 1 million recorded at some of the largest previous events, while even in the relatively remote Portugal venue the Rock in Rio Lisbon events have attracted visitor numbers in excess of 350,000.
