LISBON, Portugal (CelebrityAccess) — Katy Perry will be the headliner the closing night of Rock in Rio Lisboa in Bela Vista Park, Lisbon on Sunday, June 30.
It is her only European festival appearance in 2018.
Organizers have revealed that Perry will top the bill on a day set to feature only female artists including Jessie J, Hailee Steinfeld, and Brazilian artist Ivete Sangalo.
Perry joins headline acts Bruno Mars, Muse and The Killers for the 90,000-capacity festival.
After the huge success of Rock in Rio 3 in Brazil in 2001, festival organizer Roberta Medina decided to organize a festival of the same stature in Lisbon. The first edition of Rock in Rio Lisboa took place in 2004. Although the festival had a slight change of name, it kept the same structure as the Brazilian editions.
An entire City of Rock, with an audience capacity of 260,000 was erected at the Bela Vista Park, with a large center stage and several tents where different artists would perform, simultaneously.
“Besides being held in one of the best capital cities in Europe, Lisbon’s venue has a world-class infrastructure that offers a unique experience to all its visitors,” says Medina. “It’s much more than a music festival. It’s a theme park for music where visitors can enjoy 14 hours of entertainment per day.”
