Sofar Rio @ Mystery Location (Ipanema) – Sofar (Songs from a room) Sounds is a project that presents the magic of live music through intimate shows put on in unusual environments.

It’s a unique event where participants can enjoy an experience full of good music, while also getting in close proximity to the musicians, finding new places in the city and also enjoying the experience of a real surprise while in the comfort of a crowd of like-minded people.

Sofar Sounds performs secret surprise shows. They do not release the identity of the bands or performers before the event. The address of the location is only revealed 48 hours prior to the event and only to confirmed participants.

This Sofar Sounds event will be starting at 7PM in the neighborhood of Ipanema, with three to five bands or artists each playing a set of around twenty minutes. Tickets start from R$44.
