How Did it All Start?
Exit music festival is not your regular summer music festival. It is a movement that began in the year 2000. The new millennium began and students and young people didn’t want to live under a totalitarianism regime Serbia was under until then. They were fighting for democracy, freedom and music which are still one of the most important aspects of the festival.
The first Exit Festival was held in the University Park. The following year after the Yugoslavian general election in 2000, the festival moved to it’s, now iconic, place – The Petrovaradin fortress. This also has a special meaning to everyone who has ever felt under pressure. From Petrovaradin fortress you have the whole city of Novi Sad under your feet while the melodies and people collide in a wonderful spectacle of ecstasy. It is a place that represents freedom.
For years Exit Festival was an annual music festival held in Novi Sad. That is still true, but a couple of years ago the organization decided that this movement should be spread through the whole Balkans. After all, we all had similar historical circumstances and fight the same fights. That’s how Exit Tribe came to be.
Exit 2019 has announced that this year the festival will include five events in four countries of the region. Exit Festival invites all fans, musicians, artists, athletes, activists of all kinds to join the tribe and unite in the same goal – to protect the planet all of its habitats. The festivals that are a part of the Exit Tribe are – Sea Star Festival in Stella Maris, Umag, Croatia (May 24 – 25), Exit Festival in Novi Sad, Serbia (July 4 – 7), R:EVOL:UTION festival in Timisoara, Romania (August TBA), Sea Dance Festival in Buljarica, Budva, Montenegro (August 30 – 1 September), No Sleep Festival in Belgrade, Serbia ( November TBA).
All of these festivals invite you, not only to enjoy the music and freedom you experience during these unforgettable parties but to remember that we are a part of a society that needs to take care of the planet. Because if don’t do it no one else will do it for us! That’s why it’s so important to be a part of this Tribe which is united by a love of music, dance, joy and social awareness.
