Rock In Rio festival is back for 2013 and, as always, its line-up is humungous and diverse, with some of the world’s biggest names in music set to appear, including Muse, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Metallica, Iron Maiden and Bon Jovi.
Of course that’s only a little taste of what’s on offer with other acts such as Florence + the Machine, Sepultura, Bullet For My Valentine, Slayer and Ben Harper also on hand. Australia (by way of NZ) will be getting their Brazilian on as well thanks to representative Kimbra.
In past years the festival has reportedly amassed crowds over around 1.5 million music fans and there is no reason to expect anything less in 2013. Rock In Rio Brazil will take place over 2 weeks in 2 chunks, September 13th-15th and 19th-22nd. For the individual day line-ups head over to the Rock In Rio website.
