The magnificent beauty of Salacgriva’s coastal region deserves the most melodic of soundtracks - a tune as stunning and undiluted as nature itself. Now, for the first time in Positivus Festival’s history, one of Latvia’s most prominent composers and producers Vladislav Nastavšev will fuse his luminous piano tunes with the surrounding forces on nature. Don’t miss out of this historic solo performance on the festival's Arts and Nature stage.
A composer, whose performance will engulf you in an array of sensations and sounds, Nastavšev’s work is as soulfully intricate, as it is intimate and romantic. Using only his vocals, piano and poetry, the composer is a true minimalist and ascetic - adding the lyrics of Mihail Kuzmin, Federico García Lorca and Josif Brodsk to his own compositions, Nastavšev is known for having meaningful, soul bearing conversations with his audience through his music.
Notably, Nastavšev’s music, composed for the popular New Riga Theatre play “Peldošie – ceļojošie” was nominated for the 2013/2014 theatre season “Spēlmaņu nakts” award in the “Music composer of the year” category. Nastavšev is also known to write music for his own, self-directed theatre plays.
V. Nastavšev is the first announced Arts and Nature stage artist, with the rest of the line-up coming soon. This year’s Arts and Nature stage will be re-introduced with a brand new concept.
The ninth Positivus Festival will take place in Salacgrīva, Latvia from July 17th - 19th and will once again be an event of epic proportions for all quality music and wild party enthusiasts.
