Rock in Rio is celebrating its 15-year anniversary in Portugal with a majestic free admission event, which will be held in one of Lisbon’s ex-libris(the Tower of Belém) during September 6, 7 and 8, for an expected crowd of 150,000 people.
The event presents itself as a true symbiosis of music, video mapping, pyrotechnics and entertainment, conducted by Maestro Rui Massena(on September 6), by the British acclaimed band James(on September 7) and by “Bahia’s hurricane” Ivete Sangalo(on September 8). Besides these exclusive shows that are being especially designed for the Celebration Event, during the three days audiences will also be able to see a unique video mapping and pyrotechnics performance, which will tell the story of Rock in Rio in Portugal. During the first day, Rock in Rio will also offer a special moment with the biggest fireworks ever seen on Tejo River.
“Rock in Rio is part of the entertainment history in Portugal and Portuguese people are part of Rock in Rio’s. In September we will celebrate these 15 years the way we like and know the best: mobilizing the city to a huge party, where music and happiness will be king and queen,”states Roberta Medina, Executive VP of Rock in Rio.
This is the marquee event of Rock in Rio’s 2019 calendar lineup for Lisbon.
