For two weekends, artists such as Post Malone, Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, Green Day, Avril Lavigne and Megan Thee Stallion will perform on the two main stages designated by this festival in Brazil.
This year the festival has partnered with Fever, the global entertainment discovery platform, to offer attendees new experiences, inside and outside the venue.
"Rock in Rio will offer a wide variety of activities. Obviously music will take center stage, but just as music is considered a universal language, so are games today," said Luis Cruz, senior business development at Fever Portugal, in a statement.
This year, apart from the more than 600 artists who will offer 507 hours of concerts, attendees will be able to enjoy numerous attractions and a whole amusement park with two roller coasters, a giant Chicago wheel, a vertical drop elevator and a zip line that passes right in front of the main stage.
To enjoy "the biggest and best Rock in Rio of all time", as the festival's slogan states, the organizers increased the space of the so-called "City of Rock" by 350,000 square meters, to reduce crowds and clear each of the attractions.
That expansion also seeks to avoid protests and conflicts in a Rock in Rio that will be held for the first time in the midst of the most polarized presidential election campaign in Brazil's history.
"There will be no room for protests. The reunion (of spectators) after the pandemic carries more weight than any disagreement. Music has no side. Music will not solve the fractured Brazil, but it will decompress and guarantee a breathing moment for all groups," said Rock in Rio's president, Roberto Medina.
