Rock in Rio in Las Vegas is now less than 50 days away, and the full lineup of musical artists has been revealed, including some great Electronic Dance Music (EDM) performers. The Rock in Rio Music Festival will occur over two weekends, with May 8-9, 2015 being the Rock Weekend and May 15-16 the Pop Weekend. There are going to be tons of fantastic musical acts, and other forms of entertainment, like street jugglers and magicians, throughout both weekends.
According to the Rock in Rio Official Site, below, the concerts and other festivities will be at a part of Las Vegas that has been transformed into a City of Rock. It will be located on the corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Sahara Ave. The SLS Hotel will be directly across the street from where the majority of the concerts and action will take place.
The exact physical address where Rock in Rio will take place is 2594 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109. Everyone who enters the area will be required to have a pass. Minors can take part in the fun and attend the concerts, but if they are under 16, they must be accompanied by an adult. The majority of the activities and events, including the concerts, themselves, will run from 3 pm – 1:30 am during the two Rock in Rio weekends. Attendance at the concerts will be standing room and General Admission, only, with no seating available.
The price to attend the concerts will depend of if someone wants to be at Rock in Rio an entire weekend, or if a one-day pass is more what a person would like. The price of General Admission Weekend Passes will be $298 and Single Day VIP Passes will cost $498. The Single Day VIP Passes carry a heftier price tag, but buying one will allow the purchaser access to the VIP area, and an air-conditioned tent. Also, according to the Rock in Rio Official Site, purchasers will have access to “an open bar, gourmet food, private bathrooms, a separate entrance into the festival and access to the outdoor viewing platform outside the VIP tent.”
