In Brazil, rock’n roll has been gaining strength since the 1950s, with the groups The Sputniks and The Snakes, as well as Cauby Peixoto. In the 1980s, the genre reached the top of the charts and influenced generations, especially young people, to express their opinions.

Due to its importance as a cultural manifestation, Rock Week was established in the Calendar of Events of the City of São Paulo in April 2019, as a measure aimed at promoting rock culture in the city.
