First Positivus Festival headliner - KRAFTWERK

One of the 20th century’s most sensational electronic acts Kraftwerk are set to headline next summer’s Positivus Festival with a spectacular 3-D performance. Positivus Festival 2014 will be held for 3 days on July 18th, 19th and 20th in Salacgrīva, Latvia. The current festival ticket prices will remain only until Sunday, December 22nd, later increasing - 3 day ticket without camping will cost LVL 40,06 (Eur 57,00) and a 3 day ticket with camping will cost LVL 44,28 (Eur 63,00).
 
Kraftwerk have undoubtedly been the inspiration behind many of today’s greatest artists; having already launched a full scale pop revolution in the 70’s, they are true electronic pioneers. Their concert performances are hugely entertaining revues and crowd-pleasing events with brilliant songs, beautiful sounds, well-designed projections, and, lately, 3-D imagery. But the personality of the band away from the stage has always been hard to peg. Part of it is that Ralf Hütter prefers to let the work speak for itself. He doesn't do many interviews, and when he does sit for one, he never seems to give too much away.
 
Kraftwerk originated in the late 1960s when Florian Schneider and Ralf Hütter met as students at the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf. While building their own various rhythmic devices and experimenting at their Kling Klang home recording studio, Kraftwerk released their debut album in 1969. International success came after the release of their 1974 record Autobahn, which showcased a perfect combination or rock and electronica. Kraftwerk are scheduled to perform on Saturday, July 19th as the main Lattelecom stage headliners. 
 
Currently, a 3 day ticket without camping costs LVL 33 (EUR 46,95) and a 3 day ticket with camping costs LVL 37 (EUR 52,65). From Sunday, December 22nd, the festival ticket prices will increase – a 3 day ticket without camping will cost LVL 40,06 (Eur 57,00) and a 3 day ticket with camping will cost LVL 44,28 (Eur 63,00). Tickets are available at www.positivusfestival.com, in all Biļešu Serviss box offices and Nordea ATM’s (in Latvia only).
