Next year Positivus Festival will celebrate its 10 year anniversary with a line-up of some of the most anticipated visitor artists. British singer Ellie Goulding is amongst the first announced headlining artists, and even though this will not be her first visit to Latvia, she is currently amongst the top-played and demanded global pop singers.
Throughout her career, Ellie Goulding has been a continuous record breaker, with her singles played in the hundreds of millions on all the biggest music channels and platforms. Her newest and third studio album “Delirium” (2015) is expected to only further cement her pop music diva status. No stranger to big screen soundtracks, Goulding’s songs have been featured in some of the biggest blockbusters of our time, including Twilight, The Hunger Games and The Divergent Series, as well as more than 50 other movies and TV series.
Ellie Goulding is still one of the most sought-after singers amongst pop stars – her success is attributed not only to her current chart hits, but also to her unique trademark voice. Goulding possesses the vocal range of a light-lyric soprano that spans 3.5 octaves and is especially renowned for her high piercing vibrato, which she delivers with an unparalleled emotional range. Goulding’s versatile pop tracks carry indie and synth-pop influences, with reflections of electronica and even folktronica, which she always performs with constant and unwavering emotional intensity.
Organisers remind that Positivus Festival tickets are available for last year’s prices for only 3 more days – a three day ticket currently costs 65 € and a three day ticket with camping – 73 €. A camping site ticket can also be purchased separately for 10 € – this price will not be subject to change up until the festival. Ticket prices are set to rise from December 3rd.
