Exit Festival started as a student social movement in the year 2000 fighting for political change and freedom, and it continues to spread positive vibes, promoting change and positive education, supporting many community and humanitarian missions, while throwing a really good party.
Exit Festival has now become a landmark in the staple of electronic music and returns for it’s 19th consecutive year to the Petrovaradin Fortress, located in Novi Sad, Serbia. The fortress, an 18th-century citadel on a cliff overlooking the River Danube, is nicknamed ‘the Gibraltar of the Danube’. Exit’s 2019 edition will showcase no less than 40 stages across 4 days, with genres all around the spectrum of dance music. There will be 2 stages in particular that have caught our interest, which will feature some of the best dance acts around, showcased on the Mts Dance Arena and No Sleep Novi Sad.

No Sleep Novi Sad Stage
It’s good to see that Exit has made a point to push more for gender equality this year since 6 female artists are part of the No Sleep Novi Sad stage. Live acts are also widely covered across the festival with some very forward-thinking performers. As the festival suggests “On more than 40 stages and zones hidden between the walls of Petrovaradin Fortress” this alone should arise your curiosity! Are you ready for a sleepless Sunday?
The festival features a wide range of sounds across 4 days. If you like trance, you will be pleased at the Gaia experiment stage or perhaps put on a pair of headphones to experience the Silent Disco stage. They also have a Reggae stage and even Rock ’N Roll featured as The Cure is playing the Main Stage on Day 1. When it’s time to chill you can enjoy more exotic moods at the Pachamama World Chill-Inn stage, which is back for its 2nd year.
All in all, EXIT Festival (4-7 July) promises to be something special, that’ll surely give you a once in a lifetime experience.
