Rock in Rio Lisboa Lisbon event production

The City of Rock, in Bela Vista Park, recently had the biggest festival ever - for six days, 14 hours a day, it was party time in Lisbon!

When Roberto Medina decided to bring the Rock in Rio festival to Europe, he wanted to combine the world’s biggest music festival with social charities. His dream came true and Portugal welcomed the 4th edition of Rock in Rio with open arms.

During the six days of the festival, about 385,000 people attended. There was a good international impact too: nearly 700 million people from 60 countries followed the event. and more than 700 journalists got an accreditation for the daily covering of the festival. The event created 10,000 direct jobs and 15,000 indirect jobs.

More than 70 artists from Portugal and abroad performed a total of more than 130 hours of performances on the several stages built for the City of Rock.
