First day of the festival has lines to eat, drink and collect giftsSandro Vox/O Dia Agency
Rio – It is difficult to escape the lines at events that bring together 100,000 people in a single space, and on the first day of Rock in Rio this was no different. They were trained in cafeterias, drinking fountains, official stores and, mainly, in sponsorship activations. At least until late afternoon, however, there was no complaint about them.
That’s because, despite the agglomeration, almost no one wasted a lot of time stopped. The exception was an action by Itaú, which traditionally distributes Rock in Rio collectible cups. At one of the distribution points, the queue gathered hundreds of people and even turned around.
On Rock Street, some points had small queues for the purchase of snacks, but these were no more than a few minutes. The same can be seen in the cafeterias around the City of Rock and in the stores that sell official products.
Lucky for those who like the games. At GamePlay Arena, where you can play classic pinball machines or modern video games, no queues formed throughout the afternoon. There were empty machines and the movement was free. All this under the air conditioning – which was a great refreshment for a hot afternoon in Rio.
