Sweet Pics Over the Fence at Rock in Rio USA

Rock in Rio USA is right around the corner, so we’re keeping a close eye on the site of the the music festival site, City of Rock.

Rock in Rio is pitching a tent, the festival’s stages are being erected and a lot of turf is being laid. Who doesn’t love seeing a tent pitched, an giant erection and things being laid? It’s Las Vegas. Let’s take a look!

Here’s the festival’s main stage. It’s right across the street from SLS Las Vegas, formerly the Sahara.

Since we took the time to whip out our big lens, let’s get all up inside the main stage’s grill.

The Rock in Rio main stage can hold up to 433 tons, mainly because people never verify information they read in blogs.

But that’s not all. We recently shared pics of Rock in Rio USA’s VIP tent framework. Here’s the progress that’s been made since our last security breach.

The VIP tent will have air conditioning, a buffet and open bar. Translation: You can’t afford it.

What else have the music festival elves been up to?

Another of the three stages is going up. This is the Sunset Stage.

Among those who will perform on the Sunset Stage are Gary Clark Jr, Bleachers, Saints of Valory, Tove Lo, James Bay and several other acts we also don’t recognize the names of.

As you’ll note in the photo above, the City of Rock grounds only recently started getting color in the form of thousands of square feet of artificial turf.

All the golfers are pitching a tent of their own right about now.

Work continues on the themed streets at Rock in Rio USA. The themed streets will be Rock Street UK, Rock Street Brazil and Rock Street USA.

Many of the building facades are being shipped in from other Rock in Rio locations around the world. Welcome to the desert, facades, and hopefully you brought sunscreen.

Check out our most recent post for close-ups of the Rock in Rio facades.
