Rock in Rio 2022
The Rock in Rio festival is known as the largest festival in the world. Editions have been held in different cities such as Madrid or Las Vegas. However, where more editions have been held has been in Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro .
The festival was born in 1985, thanks to Roberto Medina, a Brazilian businessman. The first edition featured artists such as AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Queen.
