Around 30,000 attended Positivus 2017

Around 30,000 people attended the annual Positivus music and art festival in Latvia’s seaside town of Salacgriva this year, the festival’s organizer Girts Majors told LETA.

He said that like in previous years, the largest crowds were seen at the three-day festival on Saturday and the festival’s attendance reached an estimated 30,000 people, which is roughly in line with the organizers’ forecasts.

“The claims that the festival will not take place anymore are rumors. There have been a lot of doubts and misconceptions from outside. But the festivalgoers have no doubts that the festival passed off well and that this will not be the last time,” said Majors.

Asked about next year’s Positivus program, Majors said that the emphasis would be on the younger generation and the hits played by radio stations. “The festival has developed its stylistic framework in recent years. We are not changing our style – the content must represent the popular music of today. Rock used to dominate in previous years, but now there is not so much of this music on the radio anymore,” Majors said.
