Rock in Rio is already a classic festival in Brazil. People don’t ask if it is going to happen, but when it will happen. Sponsors start their negotiations for next year during the performances and the city practically stops for the shows. For the ones who aren’t sure of how the festival works or if they will actually buy the ticket, here are some valuable tips.

Save the date: September 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, and 22 the festival is going to its 40th edition.

This tip is useful for buying tickets. Rock in Rio is always in the spotlight, so many people from Rio de Janeiro and other places are trying to get their space in the festival. That’s why you should always gather a group that will go with you and put all of them on the website by the time the tickets start to sell. If only one person is responsible for that, the chances of success will not be as high.


     If everything goes well and your turn in the virtual line arrives, you’ll need to have some things prepared:

  • Your CPF number;
  • Your credit card information (name, number, and security code). That’s not necessary if you are going to pay using PIX.
  • If you pay half price, you’ll need your CIE number (Student Identification Card . It is the official and prescribed by the Half-Price law nº 12,933). If you don’t have it, you can get yours here.


For the general public, the sale will start on May 23rd, at 7pm, exclusively on Ticketmaster website. The line places are chosen randomly, so don’t bother accessing the site too soon. You can buy up to four tickets at a time, but only one of which can be half-priced.

Customers associated with Rock in Rio Club are entitled to an exclusive pre-sale that will take place between May 14th at 12pm and May 23rd at 12pm Itaú customers holding Itaú, Credicard or Iti credit cards are also entitled to an exclusive pre-sale during the period from May 20th at 12pm to May 23rd at 12pm Tickets are subject to availability.


The prices of the tickets are an essential thing to be aware of because you can organize your money and see if you’ll need to pay in installments. Here are they:

  • Full price: R$ 795,00
  • Half price: R$ 397,50 
  • Itaú benefit (15% off): R$ 675,75

You can pay in six installments interest-free. If you are an Itaú customer it can go to 8 installments.


Once your purchase is finished, you need to know where your tickets will be available for you. The official Rock In Rio website says:

“Rock in Rio 2024 tickets are exclusively in digital format! For now, your ticket is still virtual and purchase information will always be available in the My Orders area. Later, we will inform you about all the features of your new ticket.”

With all those tips, I’m sure you are prepared to buy your ticket and enjoy the festival!
