The organization reminds us that “the bracelet gives access to all festival spaces, up to the capacity limit of each one”. “In other words, there will always be a place to watch a concert, but on less crowded stages it is advisable to arrive early to guarantee a place”, reads the official Super Bock em Stock website, where show times are available. The bus which runs along Avenida da Liberdade, between Marquês de Pombal and Restauradores, and is also a stage, is free for festival pass holders. In addition, there will be ‘shuttles’ running between 8pm and 1am between the rooms where the shows take place, also free for anyone with a festival bracelet.
