EXIT Festival in Serbia is only a month away and if you’re looking for a European festival to split to next month I couldn’t recommend EXIT enough. I was there in 2012 and it was mega. This year’s edition takes place from July 11th to 13th.
The four-day event began in 2000 as a student protest against the Milosevic regime and now takes place annually in the a 17th century Petrovaradin fortress on the river Danube in great weather beside the town of Novi Sad. The festival site is filled with proper nooks and crannies, drawbridges, courtyards, moat-valleys, a huge dance amphitheatre, rickety wooden bridges, cobbled streets, tunnels, random alcoves and stunning vistas of the surrounding areas. Novi Sad is also a nice place to hang out in. It’s cheap and there’s loads of Greek and Balkan cuisine on offer during the day to try.
This year’s lineup includes Queens Of The Stone Age, Damon Albarn, Gloria Gaynor, Pet Shop Boys, Rudimental, Skrillex, Disclosure, Suede, Example, Asian Dub Foundation, Dusky vs. Paul Woolford, Gorgon City, Tiga vs. DJ Hell, Waze vs. Odyssey.
You can win a pair of tickets to this year’s EXIT festival taking place from July 11th to 13th . A trip is well worth it. Accommodation and travel is not included but travel is between €370 – €450 from Dublin through Lufthansa to Belgrade and travel to Novi Sad is about €20 or so, one hour away. Check the EXIT Festival travel site for more details. There’s also the Sea Dance Festival happening after if you want to extend your trip into Montenegro.
