Rock in Rio USA set to rock (and pop) in Las Vegas

Rock in Rio, an international music festival that debuted in Brazil in 1985, is celebrating 30 years with its first U.S. event in Las Vegas. Rock in Rio USA will run two consecutive weekends, May 8-9 and May 15-16, on grounds at the corner of Sahara Avenue and the Strip.

The 37-acre “City of Rock” site, a permanent addition to the Las Vegas Strip, has six music stages and can accommodate 85,000 people. This Friday and Saturday will find No Doubt and Metallica headlining Rock Weekend on the main stage May 8-9 respectively. Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars will headline Pop Weekend on the main stage May 15-16 respectively.

Numerous other rock and pop acts will perform throughout both weekends. Click here for the complete lineup.

In addition to the abundant musical offerings, festival goers will also enjoy themed street fairs, a zip line and an air-conditioned VIP area complete with premium stage views and a buffet.

It is less than two miles from there to the Rock in Rio site.
