A boutique festival that is going from strength to strength with its picturesque woodland setting by the Baltic sea - this is a unique experience not to be missed this summer.

This summer Positivus Festival can expect a real Brit invasion - alongside the previously announced artists, including the rock legend Robert Plant, Positivus is also proud to announce the addition of several other UK heavyweights - Placebo and Kasabian, Manchester’s contemporary rock quartet Everything Everything, London’s dark underground princess Charlie XCX, as well as Bristol’s trip-hop patrons Lamb. The international line-up will be complimented by celebrated local acts - the intellectually romantic The Sound Poets and the kaleidoscopically eclectic Triana Park.

Kasabian and Placebo are probably the most anticipated Positivus Festival bands, and although the cult-rockers Placebo have already performed in Riga three times in the last decade, they still top the annual festival visitor band poll along with Kasabian.

Placebo have just embarked on an extensive tour, marking a two year period of retrospective activity leading into 2016 - Placebo’s 20th Anniversary. The band has also made their entire album back catalogue available on worldwide streaming services, such as Deezer and Spotify, for the very first time.

Proving time and time again that experience equals quality, Kasabian have gone from dance-rock outsiders to one of the biggest rock bands in UK’s history. Along with their Mercury Music Prize nomination Kasabian have also received numerous music awards, including the 2015 NME Awards for 'Best Album' and 'Best British Band’.

The other additions to the vibrant festival line-up include the first-time Positivus visitors Everything Everything, as well as recurring guests Lamb and the energetic Charlie XCX. Baltic and Latvian audiences will also be familiar with two local acts set to perform this summer - The Sound Poets and Triana Park.

The ninth Positivus Festival, that will take place from July 17th - 19th in Salacgrīva, Latvia, will once again be an event of epic proportions for all quality music and wild party enthusiasts. Along with the aforementioned bands, Positivus Festival will also host Robert Plant And Sensational Space Shifters, St.Vincent, Basement Jaxx, Tom Odell, Jungle, Fenech-Soler Jack Garratt, Kate Boy, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Max Jury and Soak.

The festival’s main partner is Lattelecom, with support from Nordea and Tuborg. All the Festival news can be heard on radio SWH - the official Positivus Festival radio.
