Latvia’s biggest annual music event has added some further big names for Positivus Festival 2016, including the legendary Iggy Pop as a headliner.
Iggy will be joined by fellow headliners Ellie Goulding and M83 for this year’s Positivus Festival 2016, which we previously revealed the first line-up for. Taking place in Salacgrīva, Latvia, the acts so far announced should be enough to convince you to maybe venture out of the UK during festival season, also considering this will be the tenth anniversary show. Other big names involved for 2016 are electro group Hot Chip, lo-fi rockers Wolf Alice, synth-popstress Grimes, UK dance-pop act Years and Years and the one and only Richard Hawley.
