Rock In Rio “has been doing politics for 37 years”, says Luis Justo, CEO of the festival

As happened at Lollapalooza, Rock In Rio should be marked by various political demonstrations. In addition to the subject being on the rise in 2022, the opening of the festival takes place exactly one month before the first round of elections in Brazil. Luis Justo, CEO of RIR, highlighted that he will maintain “freedom of expression”.

“We don’t get into partisan discussions, one candidate or another. This does not, of course, prevent people with positions, such as artists or the public, from expressing themselves in a democratic environment. This is inherent in democracy and has always been present at the festival,” he explained.


“If you look back over the last 37 years that Rock in Rio was present in the history of Brazil, you will see that we do politics. Our policy is made, for example, when we talk about the importance of sustainability, and when we build a 100% recycled World Stage. This is our way”, declared Justo.

Finally, the CEO believes that the demonstrations will happen again. “Perhaps today, situations like what happened in Lollapalooza, are more potentiated. But the truth is that any public environment allows people to have freedom of expression,” he pointed out.
