Other improvements to next year's festival include reducing the stage numbers to six (instead of seven), reduced number of attendees (5000 less per day) to avoid overcrowding, increased facilities, and larger bars to speed up service. Free transport will also be provided back to Madrid from the festival's Valdebebas location.
