Heading to Rock in Rio, the music festival celebrating its 30th anniversary worldwide and coming to the Las Vegas Strip for the first time in May? Wolfgang Puck will be keeping your stomach full.

Puck plans to put together a buffet for the 4,000 VIPs who attend the festival May 8-9 and May 15-16. Rock in Rio includes three streets, celebrating the United States, United Kingdom and Brazil, and Puck plans to create dishes based on those three cultures.

Snacks, dinners and desserts will cover American, British and Brazilian dishes. Look for fried chicken and pimento cheese po’ boys with okra kimchi, spicy boudin balls with creole tartar and bread pudding soufflé with whiskey cream. Dishes with Brazilian influences include the national dish feijoada, Portuguese rice and chicken bobo. Rock Street UK includes updates to iconic dishes such as as house made bangers with stout onion gravy, Yorkshire pudding and Thai red curry Scotch eggs.  

VIPs also land air conditioning, an open bar and a great view of the City of Rock. The four-day festival features music from Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Metallica, Linkin Park, No Doubt, Maná, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Jessie J, to name a few.

Single day VIP passes go for $498. VIP tickets for May 9 and May 16 have already sold out. Pick up tickets here.
