I was fortunate to be able to attend the Las Vegas Rock in Rio Festival Pop Weekend. What an amazing lineup! There were full concert sets by Ivete Sangelo, Echosmith, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift Friday night followed by Big Sean, Empire of the Sun, John Legend and Bruno Mars Saturday night. There were many other performers throughout the weekend ensuring that someone was performing on one of the many stages all afternoon and evening.
It was a fun atmosphere with a small town built around the area. Something different about this festival is that it was completely cash free. Every guest had a wristband, and you loaded money onto your wristband in order to buy concessions.
I hope that they choose to come back to Vegas for 2016 because I will certainly be one of the first in line for tickets! Videos to come! Be sure to visit the official Rock in Rio USA website for details on the 2016 event!
