For the third edition in a row, the organization of Rock in Rio decided to dispense with the help of Fundação Cacique Cobra Coral, an esoteric entity that claims to control the climate, to try to stop the rainy weather that has dominated the first days of the festival.
Since 2001, the music event has hired the medium Adelaide Scritori to prevent the rain from interfering with the shows. The relationship was broken in 2015, after there was a big storm on one of the festival days, and the 2017 and 2019 editions continued without the contract – in both, Cidade do Rock was punished by bad weather.
The rain showed up at Rock in Rio on Saturday night, the 3rd, and made the public run to buy raincoats and try to protect themselves. The forecast is for the weather to remain rainy this Sunday.
For the next days of the event (8, 9, 10 and 11), the forecast in the capital of Rio de Janeiro is sunny with some clouds, but no rain, according to Climatempo.
Created to “intervene in the imbalances caused by man in nature” and “minimize catastrophes that may occur”, the entity incorporated by the medium has a long history of weather forecasts for events such as the New Year’s Eve party in Rio de Janeiro and the Olympics. It also says it was called in to help with the inauguration of President Jair Bolsonaro, in 2019, and in the unraveling of the ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal.
