For the first time ever, Rock in Rio will take America! The two-weekend festival, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary since its debut in Brazil in 1985, will make its first-ever stop in Las Vegas in May—with a star-studded lineup on May 8-9 and May 15-16!

While it will be the first time the cultural phenomenon—typically held in Brazil, Spain and Portugal—will be stateside, Rock in Rio will bring its architectural design to The City of Rock just on The Strip. The open air venue will include a ferris wheel and 64-foot high zip line in addition to the packed lineup.

And unlike most festivals, you don't have to choose between who you want to see at the Main Stage or the Mercedes-Benz Evolution Stage because alternate timing will allow attendees to see every performance on the lineup! And there's a rock weekend and a pop weekend for fans who cater to either—or both!

Click through to see the lineup for the 2015 festival stop in Las Vegas plus when and where!
