Mercedes-Benz Sponsors Rock in Rio USA

Mercedes-Benz Sponsors Rock in Rio USA

rock in Rio

Rock in Rio announced today sponsorship agreement with Mercedes-Benz to serve as official sponsor for the upcoming Rock in Rio USA music festival taking place May 8-9 and May 15-16 in Las Vegas. The agreement includes Mercedes-Benz having naming rights of the Sunset Stage that will be named Mercedes-Benz Evolution Stage.  

The Rock in Rio partnership represents a natural build on the luxury brand’s involvement in producing consumer-facing music events, which began with last year’s groundbreaking multi-city Mercedes-Benz Evolution Tour. This year, Mercedes-Benz will further present consumers with experiences that showcase the evolution of the brand and tap into key consumer passion points. 

“We are excited to continue our support of both up-and-coming and established talent in the music industry through the sponsorship of Rock in Rio,” said Drew Slaven, Vice President of Marketing at Mercedes-Benz USA. “Rock in Rio prides itself in delivering an unparalleled consumer experience, while appealing to a wide and diverse demographic. These key attributes are important as we continue to evolve and enhance the Mercedes-Benz music platform in the US.” 

“We’re very excited to have such a premium brand as Mercedes-Benz sponsoring Rock in Rio. Over the past 30 years we’ve developed a very successful model that delivers a strong communication platform for brands,” states Roberto Medina, President and Founder of Rock in Rio. “What better way to kick-off the first US edition of Rock in Rio than to align with a top luxury brand such as Mercedes-Benz.” 

Rock in Rio: 30 years of a sponsor-based event
Since its inception, Rock in Rio has embraced sponsors and brands as part of its DNA: in 1985, the first edition of the festival was sponsored by the biggest beer brand in Brazil with an investment of 25 million dollars and gathered 1.3 million people over 10 days of festival.  Nowadays, the festival has expanded to 3 countries and was attended by more than 7.4 million people. In 2013, the Brazilian edition reached 54 million dollars in sponsorships and for the September 2015 edition Rock in Rio will also gather the same value.

For the first edition in the US, Rock in Rio USA has already reached the 14 million dollars mark, and is partnering with brands like Red Bull, Bacardi, Moet Hennessy, Las Vegas Events, among others. The festival also has returning brands from previous events in Brazil and Portugal: Sky Brazil, Hotel Urbano and EDP Renewables. 

The legendary music festival first edition in the US is a partnership between the MGM Resorts International, Yucaipa Gropu and Cirque du Soleil. With a capacity of 85,000 people per day, the more than 40-acre venue will include a ferris wheel and a 64-foot-high zip line. The venue also includes a VIP area that can accommodate up to 4,000 people featuring air conditioning, an all-inclusive buffet and open bar (certain premium liquors will be available for additional purchase) and a unique view of The City of Rock. Additionally, The City of Rock will feature three Rock Streets – themed streets welcoming attendees to experience an entirely new and exciting kind of music festival and to enjoy the eclectic cultures of the U.S., the UK and Brazil.

Rock in Rio USA will welcome some of the biggest names in music on its Main Stage including Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Sam Smith, Metallica, Linkin Park, No Doubt, Ed Sheeran, Big Sean, Maná and Echosmith among others. On the Mercedes-Benz Evolution Stage the lineup includes Foster the People, Jessie J, John Legend, Deftones, Charli XcX, Joss Stone and Bleachers.

The Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series continued last night (Thursday, April 17) as Indie-rock group HAIM brought its three-part harmonies to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ Boulevard Pool.

Following a dynamic opening by MS MR, HAIM dove headfirst into a rocking set that kicked off with “Falling.” “How magical is this?” bassist Este wondered aloud, referring to the intimate outdoor concert venue perched high above the Las Vegas Strip. The San Fernando Valley-based quartet, comprised of “three sisters and a mister,” delivered a ferocious, high-energy performance, punctuated by witty banter and complete with songssuch as “The Wire,” “Let Me Go,” “Honey & I” and covers of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and Beyoncé’s “XO.” Halfway through the show, lead vocalist Danielle swapped spots with Dash Hutton to sit in on the drums. The switch further demonstrated her musical prowess, as well as each band member’s ability to play multiple instruments. Spotted in VIP was Mark Foster, whose band Foster The People closes out the series with a show at Boulevard Pool this evening.

The show marks the second-to-last performance in the Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series, an unparalleled eight-day entertainment experience that offers guests the opportunity to see some of the most talked about artists live at the most unique resort amidst the avant-garde of The Chelsea and the energetic social scene of Boulevard Pool.

GRAMMY-Nominated Foster The People AT Boulevard Pool

Tickets on Sale Friday, December 16 at 10 a.m.

Foster The People with special guest Mayer Hawthorne & The County will return to Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Saturday, July 7 at 9:00 p.m.

Tickets to Foster The People will go on sale Friday, December 16 at 10 a.m. PST and are available online at www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com or through Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000.

Guests must be 21+ to reserve a cabana.

2011 has been an incredible year for Foster The People, who have previously played at The Cosmopolitan twice. The Los Angeles based trio recently received two Grammy® nominations for ‘Best Alternative Album’ and ‘Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.’ This news comes on the heels of the band’s gold certification of their celebrated album Torches, which gained global attention with its Top 10 Billboard chart debut in May. This show will also mark Mayer Hawthorne & The County’s third stint at The Cosmopolitan, having played at Book & Stage during the Grand Opening New Year’s Eve 2010 Celebration and returning to perform at the New Year’s Eve 2011 Celebration later this month.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas features artists at the forefront of the touring world and emerging artists that will inspire the next musical movements coupled with spectacularly-designed, technology-driven venues. The excitement of live-music and sports action spills onto the casino floor from Book & Stage, an upscale sports and entertainment lounge, while live DJs fill the rhythmic and vibrant hot-spot Bond with the best in house-music. Finally, The Chandelier, a dramatic inhabitable three-story architectural wonder, created by 2 million luminous crystals, that houses three unique bar experiences: high-energy hot spot, sophisticated cocktail retreat and inviting lounge.
