Exit (festival)

Exit (Serbian: Егзит / Egzit; stylized as EXIT) is a summer music festival which is held at the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia. Founded in 2000, it has twice won the Best Major Festival award at the European Festivals Awards, for 2013 and 2017. EXIT has also won the “Best European Festival” award at the UK Festival Awards in 2007. In March 2018 awarded EXIT Festival as Champion of Regional Cooperation for 2017.[3]

History

The festival was founded in 2000 in Novi Sad, Serbia as a student movement, fighting for democracy and freedom in Serbia and the Balkans. After the Yugoslavian general election in 2000, Exit moved from the city's university park to the Petrovaradin Fortress in the same city in 2001. Nonetheless, social responsibility is still key aspect of the festival activities.

In 2007 Exit won the Best Overseas Festival award at the UK Festival Awards[4] and was voted Best European Festival at the Yourope Awards.[5] It won the Best Major Festival award at the European Festivals Awards in 2013[6] and 2017.[7]

In 2006 The Observer listed Exit as its festival pick in its list of top 25 travel experiences.[8] The Guardian listed it in "12 top trips for 2008".[9] The international edition of CNN, CNN World Fiesta, included Exit on the list of nine best music festivals in the world in 2011.[10] In 2013 Euronews listed Exit as sixth in its pick of 10 European music festivals.[11] In 2018 BBC News noted Exit as one of the world's largest music festivals, hosting more than 200,000 people from 60 countries.[12] In June 2019 Forbes published an article claiming that "Thanks to the upcoming EXIT Festival, Serbia is now a new festival hot spot worth your attention".[13]

Superbrands Serbia 2006–2007 listed Exit as one of seven public urban identity superbrands.[14] In March 2018 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the awarded the Exit Festival as Champion of Regional Cooperation for 2017.[15]

In 2020 Exit was scheduled to organize five events in four countries in South-East Europe: Sea Star Festival (Umag, Croatia) in May; Revolution Festival (Timișoara, Romania) in August; Exit Festival (Novi Sad, Serbia) in July; Sea Dance Festival (Budva, Montenegro) in August; and No Sleep Festival (Belgrade, Serbia) in November.[16] Due to the 2019/20 COVID-19 Pandemic, Sea Star Festival was postponed until May 2021[17], Exit Festival has been pushed back a month, to August 2020[18], while the status of the three remaining festivals is yet to be announced. Previously, Exit also organized Festival 84 (Jahorina Mountain, Bosnia and Herzegovina), which was cancelled in February 2019 due to administrative reasons beyond the organizers' control.[19][20][21][22]
