EXIT festival becomes the first major European festival this summer

The globally renowned Serbian event celebrates its 20th anniversary in Novi Sad – from tomorrow onwards.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Serbian big-hitters, EXIT Festival, have often been at the forefront of conversation – from cancellations to relentless intent to go ahead.

We are now just a matter of hours away from it becoming the first major festival to open its doors this summer, as they prepare to welcome more than 40,000 daily visitors from more than 70 different countries – from Thursday 8th July.

Two-time “Best Major European Festival” award winners, EXIT, will take place at the stunning Petrovaradin Fortress overlooking the river Danube in Novi Sad, Serbia. Running for four days, it boasts an impressive lineup of acts – including Charlotte de Witte, Paul Kalkbrenner, Solomon, Amelie Lens, Maceo Plex, Boris Brejcha, Honey Dijon, Hot Since 82, Artbat and many others. 

Building a reputation for large scale production like no other, this year’s edition of the festival does not disappoint. It is set across more than 20 stages and zones, including the stunning Main Stage and world-renowned MTS Dance Arena – the latter of which is considered by many to be the best festival dancefloor on the planet.

The complete 4-day program runs from 7:00 PM to 8:00 AM, with an abundance of live streams on EXIT’s YouTube channel and Facebook page

But how is EXIT Festival able to go ahead with so many restrictions in place around the globe? 

It is all thanks to the security protocol confirmed by the Serbian National Health Committee. This protocol (which restricts entry to only those vaccinated, have antibodies after suffering from Covid-19 or test negative for PCR or rapid antigen testing) is based on the latest scientific research conducted across Europe. It has shown that with these measures, festivals can be the safest gathering places in the country. 

Last month, EXIT, together with other major Serbian festivals, supported the national youth vaccination campaign. Thanks to the successful mass vaccination, the general epidemiological situation in Serbia has improved so much that there is a decrease in daily numbers by 99% in the last few months, while Novi Sad itself has been without new infections for several days in a row!

More info on the festival, and the full schedule by day, can be found on the EXIT’s official website.
