Description

After a corona-related break of two years, the Positivus festival returned in 2022 in a new location. The festival had taken place 13 years in the coastal town Salacgriva in northern Latvia. Then it moved to the Latvian capital Riga, more precisely onto the Luvacsala Island on the Daugava River.

The organizer of the festival, Ģirts Majors, about the decision to hold the festival in Riga: “Every year the struggle for the artists we want to see at the festival becomes fiercer and visitors also have more and more choice in terms of attending concerts, so we need to think about how the festival could develop and continue to grow. In our opinion, the course of the festival in the largest city in Latvia and the Baltics will give our festival great opportunities for the future.”

Positivus festival is the largest popular music and art festival in the Baltics, which had taken place in Salacgrīva since 2007 and has gathered up to 30,000 music lovers from Latvia and abroad every festival year. The festival has gathered many important and well-known foreign music stars like Muse, Nick Cave, Robert Plant, Iggy Pop, Imagine Dragons, Ellie Goulding, The xx, Sigur Rós, Sinéad O’Connor, and many others, a total of several hundred famous musicians of different generations. Positivus festival has been mentioned in foreign media along with other festivals in Europe that are worth attending, and has been nominated for various European Festival Awards.
