Couldn't it just as easily be called "Rock In <insert city name here>" or is that a matter of a trademark issue?

Might as well have Gathering of the Juggalos in a state where you're not allowed to marry your cousin

Hellfest, Wacken, Download, and MDF relocating. Seriously though, why don't they just call it Las Vegas Metal Fest or would that make sense?

It doesn't sound like it will be strictly metal oriented.

name recognition duh

Let's have the NYC Marathon in Paris! How about the Daytona 500 in Tokyo? Pebble Beach Pro-Am in Scotland anyone? Maybe the Kentucky Derby should be held in Toronto!

Name recognition is fine, as long as there's no geographical tie to it. EX: Download, Sonisphere, etc.

They should move MDF to Keswick. But nothing happens here, I'd settle for the Havlock Jamboree.

The Dakar Rally comes to mind! It used to be the Paris to Dakar Rally, then they shortened it to The Dakar, then moved it to South America, halfway around the world from Dakar!

Rock In Rio has always been called Rock In Rio, even when it was in Lisbon, Portugal.
