Vibe

Amongst the popular bands featured, the Exit organisers strive to maintain their reputation of a festival that provides relevant entertainment, often giving ground for the Serbian and international youth to understand the current social topics.

In terms of the festival set-up, the surround serbia and the 18th centruy fortress in which the festival is held, has meant the festival is often referred to as “Beautiful”. Many reviews also suggest that the local town of Novi Sad will “capture your heart”.

The festival is an important date for up and coming bands, as western audiences get to sample each others material on a more international scale.

  • "EXIT has a crazy wild side that only very few festivals have. Bring us back again, we fukin luv it. Come on!!!" The Prodigy
  • 'It was good to be part of such a politically important non corporate festival that has much good music and intentions in a really beautiful place' Adrian Utley, Portishead
