Rock in Rio Lisboa is the Portuguese edition of the iconic rock festival, born in Brazil's famous party city.
Now part of a recognised cycle whereby the legendary brand alternates between South America and Europe, the Lisbon version is now very established in its own right, with editions dating back to 2004 and lineups that can challenge those of any festival on the planet.
Every two years, the city's Bela Vista Park welcomes musical megastars from all manner of genres, from rock legends to modern pop icons, for a phenomenal five-day fiesta in the Portuguese capital.
Lisbon's Parque da Bela Vista is in the northern quarter of the city centre. It marries the space needed for such a large scale event with super easy accessibility, as the park is just a short distance from the Tagus.
Rock in Rio Lisboa's festival site is a very short distance south of Lisbon airport, in the north of the city centre. The journey should take around 40 minutes by public transport from the city centre, or you can take a 15 minute taxi for less than €10. Festival shuttle buses will be available from various points across the city.
