So here’s the skinny: the only way to reach Cidade do Rock (Rock City) for Rock in RIO 2017 (taking place on September 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23 and 24) is via public transportation.  As a convenience to the public, MetrôRio will operate 24 hours a day during the event.  Event organizers say that Rock in RIO will also feature a couple more surprises to make the event extra special, including a major upgrade to the Cidade do Rock space and special Rock in RIO performances in BRT terminals:
