History of Exit Festival
EXIT Festival began in 2000 as a student protest against the government. So far over two million people have visited the festival and medias like CNN and The New York Times have proclaimed EXIT Festival 2016 to be one of the Top Ten world festival destinations.
The festival is held at the Petrovaradin Fortress which is located on the right bank of the river Danube in Novi Sad, Serbia. EXIT Festival was officially proclaimed as the ‘Best Major European festival’ in 2014. This year EXIT Adventure, which includes the Novi Sad based Exit Festival and the Montenegro Jazz Beach based, Sea Dance Festival, won the award for the ‘Best European Summer Music Festivals’.
This year Exit goes under the slogan EXIT Magic. It will offer everything you could possibly imagine at this year’s edition from pop, rock music to house and techno music. Among the 15 stages some of the most important are the Main Stage with the lead mainstream acts playing there, the mts Dance Arena, where the Electronic Music lovers can expect one of the best festival lineups this year, and the smaller, but vibrant Explosive Stage and the Fusion Stage.
We will focus on the mts Dance Arena, which is considered as one of the best electronic dance music arenas in the World. It can host over 25,000 people, and the night kicks off around midnight and goes all the way until after dawn. The mts Dance Arena has hosted some legendary DJ sets and B2B including, Carl Cox B2B Danny Tenaglia, Ben Klock B2b Marcel Dettmann, Carl Craig B2B Green Velvet, Dixon & Ame, Adam Bayer B2b Joseph Capriati, Faithless, Francesca Lombardo, Deep Dish, amongst many many others.
This year the Dance Arena will host names like Maceo Plex, Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, Solomun and Hernan Cattaneo, just to name a few. The magical journey Exit Magic starts on 7th of July and will end on 10th of July. After that you can take a few hours road-trip to Jaz Beach, Budva, Montenegro, where Sea Dance Festival will take place from the 14th until the 16th of July.
