Lisbon wakes to giant Vodafone guitars

To kick off the countdown to the Rock in Rio-Lisboa 2014 festival, whose Principal Sponsor this year is Vodafone, the by now famous 'giant guitars' were erected this morning alongside key routes into the capital.

Starting today, on the Segunda Circular, Avenida das Forças Armadas and at Praça de Espanha, the Vodafone guitars will show the days to go to the opening of the gates of the City of Rock, together with information about the festival line-up and competitions to win free tickets.

Each one weighs 9 tons and is 7 metres tall by 3 metres wide. The guitars are made from fibreglass and polyester resin. They are painted red and have stainless steel strings and 450 cm by 60 cm LED panels.

Those wishing to purchase their ticket (daily price €61) effortlessly and at the same time gain the privilege of entering through an exclusive gate at Rock City, Vodafone provides the Vodafone m.Ticket facility on its Rock in Rio app (available from Google Play Store and Apple Store).
