The Positivus Festival starts when you hit the road. This year, there are many ways of getting to Salacgrīva, where the largest music and art festival in the Baltics will take place; which one are you going to use?
Together it is always more fun! One of the most convenient ways of getting to the Festival is Positivus Shuttles – they will depart from Rīga, the Mall Olimpija (Āzenes iela 5) and arrive at the main gate of the Festival.

Shuttle departures from the stop in Salacgrīva by the Festival’s territory:
• Monday, 20 July, at 01.45, 09.30 and 14.30
To make the way convenient and fast, the Positivus Shuttle will have no stops in its way to Salacgrīva. We invite you to purchase the tickets well in time, as the quantity is limited and the first trip has been fully booked already. You can buy the tickets on positivusfestival.com for EUR 6.50.
Another way of getting to the Positivus Festival with good comfort is the green Baltic Taxi taxis, which will take you and three your friends to Positivus for EUR 76. You can by the vouchers on positivusfestival.com. Or you want a taxi ride but do not have company? Just select one of the three places where taxi passengers will be picked up: Lielirbes iela (by Mall Spice), Tērbatas iela 2 (Sakta Flower Market) or Deglava iela 67 (by Maxima XXX in Purvciems), and send your application to: firstname.lastname@example.org. One seat will cost EUR 19. Provide in the application the following: name, phone number, how many passengers (if you have company) and the desired time and place of leaving. Then employees of Baltic Taxi will contact you and negotiate the time of leaving so that a group of passengers can be arranged. Each passenger has the right to one fourth of the boot for their belongings. More information on baltictaxi.lv.

In your way to Positivus, take into account traffic restrictions and traffic jams. During the Festival, the traffic restrictions on the motorway from Rīga (Baltezers) to the Estonian border (Ainaži) (A1) will be reduced. In the span from Baltezers till Ādaži (0.00-6.3 km), where paving works are currently done, no significant works or traffic restrictions are planned in the period from 17 to 19 July. In the motorway span in the Salacgrīva Municipality (81.27-87.0 km), only speed limits are planned during the Festival.
Those Positivus visitors who come to Salacgrīva from the Ainaži – Estonia end should take into account that there are 7 spans where traffic is regulated with traffic lights in the Salacgrīva Municipality (89.4-101.36 km). Due to the reconstruction of the bridge over the Krišupīte River, traffic will be directed to a detour road. The predicted time for driving this span is 25-25 min. Although no road works will take place on the holidays, all the restrictions and traffic lights will remain in place.
If you plan your way to Salacgrīva using the road Rīga -Carnikava -Ādaži (P1), the construction works in the Carnikava Municipality (21.174-27.1 km) during the days of the Festival will be technically finished and the planned road painting works will not affect the intensified traffic flow.
