Organizers issued the following [translation via Facebook]:

“Spring 2021 will be different from the one we are used to. At that moment, we would begin to assemble the entire life-bringing structure of Rock City. However, following all recent events, and based on the indefinitions of the current world scene due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we report that the next Rock in Rio will happen in September 2022.

This change has only one goal: to preserve the health of our audience, artists and teams performing in Rock City.

For us, the festival is a time of joy and celebration. We continue working full steam to perform the best Rock in Rio ever, filled with unforgettable experiences and historic performances.

Therefore, you can already note the new official dates on the agenda: September 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10 and 11, 2022.

A thank you to everyone joining us in hopes, building a Better World and looking forward to the next meeting.

Sales scheduled for the 09/03th will no longer be happening and soon we will bring new information about the sale of Rock in Rio Card for 2022 and the attractions that will be present at the line-up!”

Sepultura Planning To Release “SepulQuarta” Album Of Quarantine Collaborations

Sepultura are planning to release a “SepulQuarta” compilation album featuring some of the various quarantine performances that they have been sharing throughout the year. The effort will be released in 2021 and it will feature members of Megadeth, Testament, Anthrax, Trivium, and more.

Andreas Kisser commented:

“That’s great that ‘SepulQuarta’ allowed us to do this. [We had] was 57 guests [in total]. That’s a fucking amazing number.

We started it on April 22nd — [that] was [when we did] the first one — and we did every week for many months, and then we [did] it every 15 days, and then we changed the [day of the week when we uploaded new episodes]. And it was an amazing experience. 28 songs we played. It was more than a three-hour concert. It was amazing. Really.”

He also added:

“I think it’s really exciting, because it’s very unique. Of course, we’re gonna remix the sound and everything, make it the best that we can, but the versions are there. This is something [made] possible only because of the quarantine situation, of the lockdown. Imagine we’re doing an album like that in normal circumstances; it would be impossible.

And the great thing about that [is that] everybody was so excited to be a part of it and really happy to play Sepultura stuff. We [played with] people that influenced Sepultura; we had bands that were influenced by Sepultura, we had Brazilian artists; pop artists, metal artists. The version of ‘Ratamahatta’ was so unique, so different. And we didn’t see any limitations. We used two drums [on some songs], we used two basses on songs, three guitars and two vocals — not any limitations — and we managed to [make it] work.”
