O Sol da Caparica 

This was, however, a festival full of controversy and complaints from the first day, from the delay in opening doors, and long lines to enter, which led to huge delays in concerts, and even cancellations, Miguel Ângelo, entered the stage at 00:17 when the concert was scheduled for 21:20, and shortly after, due to a power failure, the concert ended, The Legendary Tigerman, was even canceled.

Karetus also ended the concert earlier, after asking the organization to change the venue, for reasons of safety, logistics, and size, they were unable to finish the concert because someone decided to fire a fire extinguisher inside the tent where the show was being held.

The technical area, usually known as the ditch, was flooded by people with artist badges, who went to see the concert with permission from the organization, which prevented photographers, technicians, and security from doing their work, something never seen before, making it even dangerous, because several concerts had pyrotechnics, more than once the media was barred or expelled from the area, due to the excess of people in the place, still and due to the heat and conditions of the public, there were many who needed assistance and work was necessary redoubled for security and medical assistance, which all friends, family, sponsors who were in the pit with artists’ cards prevented or made more difficult, however, the organization chose to keep them there and expel or make access difficult, to those who were working.

During the festival there were many delays, it was normal to see the soundcheck of the bands already after the doors opened, which led to more delays, such as changes in the concerts’ line-ups, which had little difference, 10 minutes, between the stages, but the culmination of the displeasure and complaints of the public and artists who filled the social networks with complaints and negative comments, was the outburst of Os Quatro e Meia in the middle of the concert that was being broadcast live by RTP1 “Tonight we are here in on stage for you, because you paid the tickets… because if it were for the lack of respect with which several musicians during this festival were treated and a lot of the public was treated, we would not come here even once again with this organization”, and added “It ends here, being, politically correct! Don’t play with us anymore!”.

Sol da Caparica has everything to be an excellent festival, the artists who were present in this edition gave, in general, everything they had to the public that was present, with concerts of excellence, a festival that has some of the best music made in the world, the Portuguese language as queen, a good space, in an excellent location with a beach meters away, but it needs people in the organization with experience and ability to take on a task, which is not easy, but which, as we have seen, has many points to improve.
