Positivus - the largest music and arts festival in the Baltics - starts July 17, and will bring tens of thousands of music lovers to the seaside city of Salacgrīva for performances of acts like St. Vincent, Robert Plant, Everything Everything and many more. However, festival goers should know that it'll take some extra time getting there, as there'll be congested roadways both on the way from the capital and from Estonia as well, warned Normunds Krapsis of the State Police.
He said that festival goers from the capital should depart for Salacgrīva during the day, as many vehicles will be going there at the end of the workday, causing traffic jams.
Those arriving from the other side - presumably, Estonia, - should also note that there'll be a bottleneck at the Kuivuži bridge, so going to the festival from there will take extra time as well.
He also urged the drivers not to drive aggressively and be tolerant while getting to the festival.
