BUCHAREST AND RACHEL CLAUDIO & RICK FEDS ADDED TO LINE-UP
Heart wrenching yet hopeful melodies and a feeling of total desolation with a glint of unreachable openness makes for most emotionally thrilling music. The dream of four Tel Aviv youngsters has become reality - Bucharest is currently one of the most exciting alternative bands in the Israeli music scene, combining American and British punk music with Israeli rock sounds, creating a unique sound with psychedelia and dream pop influences that’s never quite been done before. Their second album Budapest (2017) was released just this year and yet to conquer global audiences, so that Positivus Festival visitors will have an unprecedented chance to witness these rising stars in their relative infancy.
Monday 29 May 2017
DADDY WAS A MILKMAN AND GET YOUR GUN ADDED TO LINE-UP
Atmospheric melodies, emotionally sensitive pop music that inspires its listeners to be better human beings. Daddy Was A Milkman is the project of Lithuanian singer-songwriter Ignas Pociūnas and has undoubtedly been one of the most vibrant musical surprises of the Baltic region as of late – his triumphant debut concert was completely sold out and his last year’s Positivus Festival appearance was a smash hit with the crowds. His debut album Daydreaming has earned him two Lithuanian M.A.M.A. music award nominations.
Get Your Gun’s sound is not a forced practice of style, but something that originates from the moment the band was formed. Their music is a blend between the weight and aggressive nature of stoner-rock, nordic melancholy and the darkest tales of country – and folkmusic. The result is a constant duality between authority and fragility and a musical universe like the three danish band members – born of a wind-swept peripheral region with wide expanses and narrow outlooks. They’re renowned for their insisting and uncompromising live-shows in which every tone and note is conducted as it was the last. Get Your Gun will guide you into their darkness to show you the light.
Monday 15 May 2017
GRANDMASTER FLASH AND OTHER PROMINENT DJ-S ADDED TO POSITIVUS FESTIVAL LINE-UP
