Chosen as the first night's headliner, British heavy metal band Iron Maden was formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and songwriter Steve Harris. In 2022, Iron Maden will be present for the fifth time at the festival held in Cidade do Rock, in Rio de Janeiro.
Steve Harris' band also shares the world stage with rock legends such as Dream Theater, Sepultura and Gojira, a band which replaces the legendary Megadeth after its participation was cancelled, attracting the most passionate about this style of music to enjoy the night of September.
In the second week, on the night of September 8th, American veterans Guns N' Roses close the festival as headliners on the world stage, with hits like "Welcome to the Jungle", "Don't Cry" and "Sweet Child O' Mine”, dragging around 110 thousand people on the last Friday of the festival, in the city of Rio de Janeiro. On the same day, attractions such as Maneskin, The Offsping and CPM 22 also perform on the world stage.
