The Circo Voador (translation: Flying Circus) is one of the most popular downtown concert venues. Set against the Lapa Aqueduct, the permanent tent-like structure accommodates approximately 2000 people. Every week there are concerts by popular Brazilian artists and bands, as well as the occasional foreign performers and theme parties. Tickets are quite affordable, usually around R$50. The stage and spectator areas are covered, but the sides of the venue are open so you can easily walk in and out to the outdoor patio where drinks and snacks are sold. This is the perfect venue for a warm Rio night. Check the website for upcoming events.
