It seems that some Balkan countries have found their way out of the global pandemic and are slowly returning to business as normal. As one of the steps towards returning to normality and encouraging tourism in the region the Serbian Prime Minister asked EXIT Festival not to cancel, but simply change the date for the 20 year anniversary edition.
The birthday celebrations are scheduled to take place from August 13th to 16th this very summer!
The event will be organized in close cooperation with the National Health Coordination team and they will follow all health and government guidelines. Naturally the festival capacity will be reduced and some of the areas that host around 40 stages and zones will remain closed. That being said the highlight venue, 18th century Petrovaradin fortress, will open it’s doors once again for the colossal Dance Arena, the festival’s Main Stage, and iconic No Sleep.
Ticket sales begin this Monday on June 1st (with refund options). The line up is yet to be announced but the festival team “has confirmed that a vast majority of artists they spoke to are eager to perform this summer. Many of them have been away from the audience for several months in isolation, and they see EXIT as an opportunity to reconnect with their fans”.
