A Festival with Heart and Soul
In 2015, after celebrating 30 years of international success, Rock in Rio takes another giant step, one that any brand serious about its longevity and reach eventually decides to take: coming to the American market.
Our event planners are already working hard from their base in New York. Here’s where everything is organized and strategized until May next year, when the City of Rock specially created in Las Vegas opens in public reception to the biggest music phenomenon of all time.
The Wizard of Rock
Roberto Medina, the mastermind behind Rock in Rio, has a well-deserved reputation for boldness — and a stubborn streak too. A producer who first made his name in advertising, Medina is always chasing dreams. He knows challenges were meant to be overcome, and he doesn’t know the meaning of the word impossible. After all, this is a man who once arranged for three minutes of silence on Brazil’s major TV and radio stations (all 3,232 of them), who built super music venues — known as The City of Rock — in three countries, and who floated a 270-foot Christmas tree on water. As an ad man, Medina believes in surprising messages that have a big impact and reach the widest audience possible. He is a real life wizard, brewing all the magic and excitement you’ll experience at Rock in Rio, the world’s biggest music festival.
