An absolutely global musical phenomenon, a cultural icon, and one of the hottest words in women’s hip-hop music scene – Megan Thee Stallion will perform on the main stage at Positivus festival on Friday, July 15th. She’s known as hitmaker with cheeky style and an impressive star with a great personality. ​​In 2019 Megan Thee Stallion burst into the American hip-hop scene, joining the major league of female rappers. Megan Thee Stallion is a three-time Grammy winner (“Best Rap Artist”, “Best Rap Performance”, “Best Rap Song” with “Savage”) and an evolving cultural icon. After the EPs „Fever” and “Suga” she released her debut album „Good News” in 2020, and her two tracks went to the top in USA  – “Savage” (remix featuring Beyonce) and “WAP”, where she joined Cardi B. Most recently the artist had a collaboration with the pop star Dua Lipa for the song “Sweetest Pie”.

Jamie xx creates the most beautiful mix of fine indie, R&B and dance music imaginable and is well known around the world as a key member of The xx. Jamie xx brings back sweet memories from Positivus festival in 2013, where we experienced the charming The xx concert and we are confident that Jamie xx’s performance is one of this summer’s most long-awaited events. The subtle blend of indie, R&B and dance he crafted with The xx has made him a sought-after remixer for such artists as Adele, Florence + The Machine, and Gil Scott-Heron. In 2015, Jamie xx released his widely acclaimed debut album “In Colour” with songs like “Loud Places”, “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” and “Gosh”. In 2020 he dropped his latest single “Idontknow” all while staying busy DJ:ing, remixing, producing and working on new material with The xx.
