Born from a stance against Milosevic’s rule over former Yugoslavia, EXIT festival is a social and cultural event to behold.
Established as one of the roots for cultural renewal in Serbia following the war torn years, the festival plays host to a strongly-alternative line-up to delight rockers and clubbers alike.
The once impregnable Petrovaradin fortress, overlooking the Danube, is taken over by 55,000 revellers daily during the four days of the festival which has hosted the likes of the Sex Pistols, Laurent Garnier and Paul Weller.
22 stages are spread throughout the maze of courtyards, rooms and underground tunnels whilst camping is available for a full 10 days in the University Park, just down the hill in the town of Novi Sad.
The closest international airport is Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport with extensive European connections while a number of budget airlines fly to Budapest (Hungary) and Ljubljana (Slovakia) airports. Travel to Novi Sad and the festival is then assured by various train and bus routes.
