On Thursday, 11 July, from 18.30, Positivus Festival pre-party will be held at „Esplanāde 2014” creative and information space. Indie pop band „Franco Franco”, alternative folkrockers „CanZone”, electronic drum'n'bass trio „Galaxy Bosons” and local progressive rock flag-officers „Indygo” offering something completely new in their show will play on the stage this evening.

„Indygo” will play weighty progressive rock taking the status of pre-party headliners considering the fact they live through a second youth presenting their qualities on a basis of a stage charisma. „Decoy”, a record released this year, has received a great acclaim from critics and fans. They have also played a huge solo gig at „Palladium” venue.

„We will play several concerts within ”Decoy„ tour in July, so we can earn some holidays in August and also prepare for our tour abroad in this autumn,” said the band member Jānis Volkinšteins to „Rīga 2014” web portal.

„Our first show will go on today at Positivus pre-party. We have done a lot together with ”Rīga 2014„ creative team to make this show unique and special!”

After Positivus pre-party show, the band will play at „Devil Stone Festival” (Lithuania, 13.07.), „Summer Sound” Festival (Liepaja, 13.07.), Positivus Festival (Salacgriva, 21.07.), „Klang” Festival (Kekava district, 26.07.), „Fonoklubs” during the city celebration in Cesis (27.07.) and „DirtFesto” (Saldus, 27.07.).

„We already do excercise for our musical muscles while running around in our daily jobs. So that Rainis may smile with satisfaction in this evening,” adds Volkinšteins or, as they call him, Volkijs when speaking of today's show.

„Mostly we will play songs from ”Decoy„ making some changes and plays with the arrangements and having some musical memories, as well.”

.Experimental indie pop band „Franco Franco” from Cesis started their musical career in 2009 releasing a debut record this spring.

„CanZone” creates and performs a music mixed with rock, folk and pop promoting their own „tin rock” style. They are proud of their electric guitar and accordion synthesis, noteworthy singing manner often completed with emotional and visual performances. „CanZone” is founded in 2009, in Riga, around Grīziņkalns district uniting together five enthusiastic musicians.

„Galaxy Bosons” refer lightly and irresponsibly to various music styles. A studio is their second home. Songs are created impulsively, each of them turns out to be pretty much different.

The event will be hosted by Kaspars Zaviļeiskis, DJ and editor-in-chief of „Rīga 2014” web portal. He will play various songs from this year's Positivus programme. Entrance is free of charge.

Positivus Festival is the biggest music and art festival in The Baltic States. It will be held for the seventh time this year carrying on three days: from Friday to Sunday, 19 to 21 July. Festival guests will be invited to see a creative and information cube of The European Capital of Culture. In there, everyone will be able to create a bit of the colourful „Sajūtu siena” („Sensation Wall”), apply for „Chain of Booklovers” and find out more about „Rīga 2014” programme.
