Today is a day of celebration. On January 11, 1985, the first edition of the festival was born. 34 years of history have gone by, 19 editions of the festival, receiving more than 2000 artists and a total audience of 9.5 million people. To celebrate, nothing better than bringing new things for Rock in Rio 2019, which is already fully booked: September 27 to 29 and October 3 to 6.
It's time to announce an unprecedented space in the City of Rock, dedicated especially to remember the year that was born the biggest festival of music and entertainment in the world. The ROTA 85 (ROUTE 85), which will receive a stage set all inspired by the iconic Route 66, will propose a vintage scene with entertainment spots such as a tire repair shop, a bar with memorabilia from these 34 years of festival history, a gas station, and more.
The year 1985 symbolizes much more than the beginning of this story. It was also the year Brazil entered the circuit of international show business. Rock in Rio paved the way for the country to be included in the route of major international concerts, bringing to the country names like Queen, Ozzy Osbourne, and AC / DC, among many other music stars who had never set foot on Brazilian before.
In addition to this great innovation, these 34 years of celebration are honored in the social networks of the festival, where the public can find a timeline of Rock in Rio in 360 degrees, pills of all editions on Twitter, and more.
Now we just have to hold the anxiety until September and wait for the biggest and best edition of Rock in Rio of all time. Please come soon, Rock in Rio 2019!
