EXIT Festival is accepting Bitcoin for tickets this year


It was only a matter of time one of the European festivals got on the cryptotrain and there’s none more boisterous than Serbia’s EXIT Festival, who talked a big game last summer, roping in the Prime Minister, before having to inevitably cancel their festival in Novi Sad.

Well, they are back with plans to go ahead in July 8th to 11th this year (though currently it’s hard for Irish people to plan for that, the UK may be feeling more robust in the rollout and easing of restrictions department).

With all the talk of NFTS (we did a podcast on it) and Dogecoin lately, EXIT have announce they are accepting Bitcoin for this year’s ticket sales.

“The potential of blockchain, digital exchange and currency is exciting and we wanted to make sure we are at the forefront and are utilising new technologies and able to engage with our tech savvy audience as technology evolves and changes.”

EXIT Festival CEO & Founder Dusan Kovacevic

The process is simple: once customers have selected the items they want to purchase in the webshop, they will see an option to ‘Pay with Bitcoin’ in the same way there is an option to ‘Pay by card’. They will then receive a QR code to scan with their Bitcoin App and once the payment has been transferred, it will be confirmed by the Bitcoin network, and the customer will receive their tickets.

I’m surprised they aren’t taking Dogecoin too.

EXIT happens from from 8th till 11th July 2021 at the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad. and plans to have David Guetta, DJ Snake, Tyga, Eric Prydz b2b Four Tet, Asaf Avidan, Artbat, Meduza, Paul Kalkbrenner, Nina Kraviz, Boris Brejcha, Sheck Wes, Hot Since 82, Solomun, Paul van Dyk, Sabaton, Metronomy, Honey Dijon, Dax J, Kobosil, Denis Sulta, Topic, Laibach, and many others.
