Mark Ronson is one of the hottest music producers and DJs and on Friday night he will perform on the Lattelecom Stage with a DJ set created especially for the festival’s anniversary. The Uptown Funk hitmaker will replace Ellie Goulding who had been forced to pull out due to being unwell. Ellie Goulding sent a message for her fans in Latvia: “I am sorry I can’t be with you this weekend. I am unwell and have been advised not to fly. I was excited about these gigs so will hopefully be back next year.”
