There are no tickets left for the giant music festival that will take place in Rio in September (the 2011 edition of the Rock in Rio festival will take place… in Rio de Janeiro!).
We are told that four days it was all that it took for the 600,000 tickets to be sold out ( Rock in Rio anuncia ter vendido todos os 600 mil ingressos para o festival).
A sizeable number of those tickets are now in the hands of ticket touts, unashamedly announcing the sale of those tickets on the internet (Cambistas virtuais já anunciam ingressos para o Rock in Rio com ágio de até 480%). Be careful if you approach ticket touts (an illegal activity in Brazil), you might end up paying up to 480% more for a forged ticket that won’t get you anywhere near the music stage.
