In 2018, Lisbon will host one of the biggest music and entertainment festivals in the world. Rock in Rio will be back in the Portuguese capital. Are you going to miss this great festival?
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Rock in Rio has become a global brand, with events in Portugal, Spain and more recently in the United States.
For four exciting days the Parque da Bela Vista will turn into Rock city. There will be more than twenty hours of festival on the various stages of this “city”, with sounds for all tastes and ages. The “World Stage” will feature the big names in international music, the “Electronic Tent” will have sets by the most famous Portuguese and foreign DJs and VJs, and the “Hot Stage’ is reserved for alternative performances by established artists and new talent that have already had some success.
In addition to the concerts, families are invited to spend a pleasant day enjoying the green spaces and of the whole entertainment experience, which includes the “Radical Space”, where the more energetic can enjoy a real snow slope for snowboarding, and the “Kids Space”, with lots of activities for children.
In Portugal, as in other countries, Rock In Rio has been reinventing itself with each edition, attracting more and more visitors and has already welcomed more than two million festival-goers over its seven editions.
With the goal of expanding its entertainment programme within the venue grounds, in 2018, the City of Rock will see the birth of new areas and stages assigned to some of the main trends of today. Among the novelties that will mark the 8th edition of the Rock in Rio-Lisboa are the “Pop District”, an area that celebrates the pop culture and its main icons, the “Digital Stage”, spotlighting digital phenomena that brings a bit of the online world to the offline one, and a new “Rock Street,” whose inspiration comes from Africa, journeying to the origins of music of all rhythms and musical styles, including rock and pop. Rock in Rio is also gearing up for a new area of gastronomy, the “Gourmet Square”, a unique area with controlled access that will feature author cuisine.

Lisbon, built on seven hills, is a city with an unforgettable light and considered the most beautiful in Europe. A city where you can make a bit of everything from seeing historical monuments, visit museums, stroll along the river, drink a ginjinha in downtown, sit down to read a book on a park bench or take a dip in the best beaches of the country.
Its streets, sometimes labyrinthine and sometimes ordered, the typical cobblestone, the tiles facades, the pombalino buildings, the clothes hanged by the window, the baked sardines on bread. All this makes Lisbon undoubtedly a charming town with lots of history around the corner.
