The first Saturday of Rock in Rio will appeal mainly to those who like rap and electronic music.
The main names of the date, Post Malone, Jason Derulo, Marshmello and Alok, bring repertoires full of hits that promise to stir the public in the City of Rock.
Post closes the Mundo Stage at 12:10 am, with a show broadcast by Multishow. See below to see all the performances of the festival.
The event will also feature the debut of great Brazilian artists at the festival, such as Racionais MC’s and Criolo, in addition to exponents such as Xamã and L7nnon.
Check out today’s highlights below:
The 27-year-old American rapper has already been to Brazil in a presentation at Lollapalooza, in 2019, when he took Kevin O Chris to the stage of the event. Three years later, he returns to the country and is expected to present more recent hits, such as “Cooped Up”, a partnership with Roddy Ricch, and “I Like You” (A Happier Song), with Doja Cat, songs released in May of this year on the album “Twelve Carat Toothache”.
“Circles” and “Goodbyes”, released on the album “Hollywood Bleeding” after Lolla 2019, can also be present on setlist.
The singer’s repertoire classics such as “Better Now”, “Rockstar”, “Congratulations” and “Sunflower”, a collaboration with Swae Lee and part of the soundtrack of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”, have also been featured in recent shows and must not be missed.
The 32-year-old American star returns to Brazil after eight years and brings his pop with R&B touches to the Rock in Rio stage. Bubblegum songs like “Wiggle”, “Savage Love”, “Swalla”, “Talk Dirty” and “Want To Want Me” are sure to excite audiences this Saturday.
Early career hits like “Whatcha Say”, “Ridin’ Solo” and “In My Head” are also expected to appear on the setlist. It’s worth paying attention to Jason’s stage presence: in addition to being a singer, he’s a great dancer.
Marshmello and Alok
Saturday is a full plate for electronic music fans. Brazilian DJ Alok is the first to take to the Mundo Stage and returns to the festival with hits such as “Hear Me Now”, a collaboration with Zeeba and Bruno Martini, and “Fuego”, with DJ Bhaskar. He should also bet on visual effects and light games, a hallmark of his presentations.
Marshmello is the second-to-last to perform, before Post Malone. The American DJ, known for performing with a helmet shaped like a marshmallow, should include in his set songs like “Alone”, “Happier”, in partnership with Bastille, and “Wolves”, with singer Selena Gomez.
Other highlights of the night
The Sunset Stage is also starring, and its last show will be the debut performance of the group Racionais MC’s at the festival. Rappers like Criolo, L7nnon and Xamã will also perform on stage alongside other artists from the Brazilian scene.
