Some of the music artists who will be performing are The Decemberists, BØRNS, Dillon Francis, Jim James, X Ambassadors, Sevyn Streeter, Katy Tiz, Priory, Lucius, Skylar Stecker, Francesco Yates, and many more. Bedstock will also have a “Bedstock Writers Stage”, which will feature authors like Cheryl Strayed, Chelsea Cain, Jon Klassen, Carson Ellis, and Mac Barnett

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.

Another 13 acts have been confirmed for next summer's Sweden Rock Festival.
In the last decade, SABATON has evolved into one of Sweden's premier music exports. Next summer, they return to Sweden Rock Festival, with a big stage show and a new album under their belts.
Bassist Pär Sundström comments:

                      When we first played at Sweden Rock Festival back in 2005, it was the biggest and best rock festival in Sweden, and we were a relatively young band who opened on the smallest stage. Now, more than ten years later, it will be amazing to return to what is still the biggest and best rock festival in Sweden, and close the main stage!

The 23rd Sónar Festival Barcelona will take place 16, 17 and 18 June 2016, at the venues of Sónar by Day (Fira Montjuïc), and Sónar by Night (Fira Gran Via).

Well, today has been a busy one for the T Lady! Tickets for T in the Park 2016 went on sale this morning and we decided to give all you T in the Parkers some early Christmas presents in the form of three additions to our line-up.

After headlining the Radio 1 Stage in 2014, DISCLOSURE are making a return to T in the Park! The electronic music duo’s live set is incredible and we can’t wait for them to bring the party to Strathallan Castle.
