Positivus: Convene In The Woods For A Baltic Bash

At Positivus, girls are costumed in flower crowns, guys are in fuzzy bears and families with children filter in through the trees to hear indie, pop and electronic music.

The well curated lineup of international and emerging acts are no less than impressive but what sets Positivus apart is its nature packed areas. The forest meets the sea here. Tall, thin pines surround the stages with shafts of sunlight reaching through and speckling the young crowd sitting on blankets.

A few steps beyond, the woods give way to the beach where the Gulf of Riga glitters and everyone can jump in for a swim. Fest-goers and travelers alike can hang out on the cool, velvety sand and in the hammocks swaying under a grove of shade trees. Add in ruby red sunsets that meld into a star filled sky each evening and the enchantment is complete.

Fans can rove among five stages. Two main venues, located at opposite ends of the grounds, host the headliners, while the Music Academy Stage showcases electronic and DJ acts. The two smaller stages are indoors and present regional bands that provide synth-pop, Estonian new wave and Lithuanian funk music.

Positivus's clean cut crowd eats up everything about in and about the event. Demographics show most are twenty-something urbanites from the Baltic countries, though music junkies from Finland, Germany and other northern European countries make the trip too.

Despite all the available booze at cheap prices, very few over indulge and go stumbling around. There's a smattering of butt-naked peacenik types, but overall everyone is well behaved and tuned in to the music.

Positivus entertains with more than concerts. The Arts and Nature Stage presents global dance troupes, improvisational theater performances and literary readings which runs much of it with a Baltic bent.

Children are welcome at Positivus and they to enjoy get their own Kids Island on which they can romp. Staffers are on hand to play games and lead craft projects each day. This makes the event a definite fun for all.
