From a fairytale venue to parties ‘till dawn, this is why EXIT festival won so many awards. Held from 7 – 10 July, it’s nothing short of spectacular:
1. A magical venue: Petrovaradin Fortress
This Southeastern European gem is an oldie but goldie. The first cornerstone was built in 324 years ago and the fortress was upgraded over time. In its heyday, it was the central place where the Austrian-Turkish war ended, and the battle resembled a scene from the movie 300: about Austrian 76,000 troops at the fortress versus the 150,000 Turkish troops. Spoiler alert: the Austrians won.
Today, the fortress is a much calmer affair. Until those special 4 days in July arrive. About 200.000 music lovers storm its gates for the best festival experience in Europe.
There was even an episode on Ghost Hunters International that went down into the fortress’ catacombs. Spoiler alert: it’s not haunted.
2.The Iconic, Historic, Unapologetic: Dance Arena and The Sunrise
Waiting for the sunrise at the colossal trench is described by many as the most endorphin-inducing rush they’ve experienced ever. And that’s quite an achievement.
This is EXIT’s second biggest stage, but the passion of its diehard fans is rivaled by none. The trick with Dance Arena is that it closes last. At 8am! Yes, that’s 8am! Literally, this is the last-standing stage at EXIT, where the party starts at the evening, and ends in the morning light well after the last day ended. People who love it, REALLY LOVE IT.
Dance Arena had some of the most explosive acts by world famous performers, including: Carl Cox, David Guetta, Richie Hawtin, Martin Garrix, Laurent Garnier, Underworld, Hardwell, Disclosure, Dixon, Loco Dice, Carl Craig, Green Velvet, John Digweed, Fatboy Slim, Dubfire, David Morales, Deep Dish, Chromeo…
The main acts for EXIT 2016 revealed for now are: Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nina Kraviz Marco Carola, Nicky Romero, Mind Against, Robin Schulz, Solomun, Dave Clarke, Disciples…
