Rock in Rio Festival

Rock in Rio was the biggest rock festival held in Brazil and also in Portugal. Three incarnations of the festival were realized in Rio de Janeiro, in 1985, 1991 and 2001 and two in Lisbon, in 2004 and 2006.

The first edition of the festival was held from January 11-20, 1985, with Queen, George Benson, Rod Stewart, AC/DC and Yes as headliners, each occupying top spot for two nights (Benson, however, ceded it to James Taylor for their second night in the same bill, due to the huge delay Taylor's extended performance had caused to his concert two days before). About 1.4 million people attended the 10-day-long festival.
