I give you Exit festival in Serbia, EXIT is the biggest music festival in South Eastern Europe and has taken place at a beautiful and magical Petrovaradin fortress in Novi Sad, since 2001. The festival has been growing and developing a following as well as a reputation to match. This in my opinion is one of the best-kept secrets in Europe, it would be advised to the public to get to this gem of a festival before you are hit with the popularity tax.
For those of you who do not know, this is when there is a certain buzz and it is seen as trendy to go to a particular festival. Those tourist boards and promoters bump up the price, shrewd business maybe, but harsh for the audience, hence it should be believed that going to Serbia and enjoying their outrageously eclectic line up would be the best medicine.
What if I miss the football I hear you cry, and I applaud your commitment, Exit have thought of this the finals and the third place match of the most important side issue in the world, as you probably already know, is overlapping with the third and the fourth day of Exit. Also, by the time the semi finals are played, many of you will already be arriving to Exit Village. The clincher is each game of the final games will be available to watch around the festival, so you do not have to miss any of it.
The commitment to keep the music going along with the football is a priceless compromise for the audience and I am sure it will not go unnoticed.
To finish we hope you along with Quenched sample this hidden festival and realise it is not only a festival with some fantastic music but Novi Sad is rich in unique and exciting activities common to the native Serbia.
So get involved and we hope to see you there.
Dates for EXIT 2010 are 8th – 11th July
