When the first-ever edition of The Next Wave was held in July 2023, there was a sea park and yachts available to rent. However, there were also several complaints about the event that the organisers plan to address this year, such as the limited floor plan, how the VIP booths blocked access to the beach, and the lack of lightning around the venue. The organisers are also considering adding a new zone for a special beach music festival experience and allowing festival-goers to bring water guns to use in specific areas of the venue.
