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.

Rock in Rio’s global communication campaign

For the launch of the pre-sale ticket vouchers, the U.S. audience will see an action-packed commercial spot that will run for a 2 weeks period on television and online featuring Donald Sutherland. Featuring Hollywood blockbuster production values, Sutherland has a briefcase stolen and takes all necessary measures to retrieve it. After all, the suitcase contains Rock in Rio tickets!

“30 Years, Many Dreams”
The Times Square Takeover event also kicked off Rock in Rio’s “30 Years, Many Dreams,” this year’s theme for the event’s Social Project that will be granting wishes submitted by Rock in Rio fans. Since 2001, the festival has added a social component to the event and has raised and invested more than $23 million for environmental and social causes.

Rock in Rio was itself born from a dream that could have never been fulfilled had it not been for those people who believed in it.  As part of the 30th anniversary celebrations the organization has decided to pay that gratitude forward by helping to make dreams come true for young people who fight for their causes.  Contenders will upload a short text about their dream at rockinrio.com/usa/dreams, and the most compelling and passionate stories will be chosen.

To illustrate the project, a video campaign will be launched, presenting the first dream that has been fulfilled – 25 year old Brazilian clown Michel de Souza. Michel was born and raised in a small town near São Paulo and worked as a clown in the local circus. He dreamed of learning with the best professionals and taking the stage in a huge circus. His story moved Roberto Medina, and Souza is having the chance to train at Circus du Soleil and learn from the leading circus professionals in the world.

“Coming to the US was always Roberto’s dream and now that it is coming true with May’s festival in Las Vegas, we felt it was the perfect time to make others’ dreams come true with our ‘30 Years, Many Dreams project.’”
