Rock in Rio 2017 is one of the biggest music festivals in the world. Back in Rio de Janeiro, where it all began back in 1985, it’s set to be another spectacular and diverse edition. With thirty years of history behind it, the festival crams its stages with A-list bands and artists from all over the globe.
Let’s say, hypothetically, you’re a music lover who’s never made it to a concert. And you want to make up for lost time. No problem. Get to to Rio this month! As long as you have plenty of energy and a week to spare, you can catch up on a lifetime’s worth of music. And not just any performers. We’re talking a living, breathing, heart-racing Who’s Who in rock history, with headlining stars at last year’s festival including Beyoncé, Muse, Justin Timberlake, Metallica, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and Iron Maiden.
It’s hard to overstate just how huge and storied this festival is. It’s so mammoth it’s held in what will be Athlete’s Park in the 2016 Olympics. Its impact on the local economy was almost half a billion U.S. dollars last year. Tickets sold out in four days in 2011. Nearly 600,000 attendees in 2013 (scaled down on purpose) took in 160 musical attractions, fueling their exuberance with 530,000 liters of beer, 48,000 pizzas, and 280,000 hamburgers. Besides breaking records for crowds, food consumed, and YouTube live viewers (it took Felix Baumgartner’s space jump to top the three million people who tuned in to Metallica’s show during Rock in Rio 2011) the festival boasts some 10 million followers on social media.
