The first negative point is transportation. There were delays of more than two hours in the bus with tickets purchased in advance by the fans, the so-called "special buses Rock in Rio". The vehicles went to pick up extra passengers, who paid on time, and the delay was great. There are also complaints from passengers who had to travel on foot.

Another issue was security. Once this first weekend there was an "arrastão" 200 meters from the entrance of the Rock in Rio, which left 28 people without portfolio, mobile, and tickets. There were over 350 instances of reported thefts and assaults. The festival organizers increased the number of police and security guards. The fans were also angered by the long queues to buy snacks.
