  Rock In Rio (Brasil)

Rock in Rio is an event originating in Brazil. It is a series of music festivals held in three cities: Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Lisbon in Portugal and Madrid in Spain. In 2013, Buenos Aires, Argentina, will be the fourth, and in 2014 Mexico City, Mexico will be the fifth. Four incarnations of the festival were in Rio de Janeiro, in 1985, 1991, 2001 and 2011, five in Lisbon, in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012, and two in Madrid in 2008 and 2010. The shows were organized by Brazilian entrepreneur Roberto Medina. In 2011, Rock in Rio returned to its original location, Rio de Janeiro, with a new line-up of singers and groups. Rock in Rio has been the largest music festival in the world, with 1.5 million people in the first edition, 700,000 in both the second and fourth editions, about 1.2 million in the third, and about 350,000 people in each of the 3 Lisbon editions. Future editions of the festival will intercalate an international edition with one in Brazil, returning in Lisbon in 2012 and Rio in 2013. Pre-sales for the 2013 tickets started during the 2011 edition, and have already reached 15,000 orders. Its name is derived from "Rock in Rio de Janeiro"
