Next year’s Rock in Rio shorter and later


The Rock in Rio Lisbon music festival will next year be held during the latter half of June instead of in May, and will last for just four days instead of five.

Organiser Roberta Medina told newspaper Público the event, which is staged every two years in Lisbon, will next year take place on 23 and 24 and 29 and 30 June. The change in dates, Medina said, is due to the availability of the artists to perform at next year’s Rock in Rio Lisboa.
