A local newspaper said the pier collapsed just as musician Rels B took to the stage at the musical festival.
A 16-year-old concert goer told Spanish publication Faro de Vigo: “We were on the walkway when it opened up. I fell on people and people fell on me. I was hit on the head and then some sort of container fell as well. I tried to get out and someone helped me.”
Another described the incident as “the worst moment of my life.”
A full investigation is already underway.
