WHAT THE DJS SAY ABOUT EXIT:
“Getting through the border wasn’t easy, the fries were a bit funky and the mosquitoes were hungry for Canadian blood, but that was a small price to pay to perform in a splendid fortress in front of 20,000 amazing, screaming fans. One of the best festival rosters we’ve seen this summer and of one the most memorable live shows of our career” Dave, Chromeo
“I have waited for years to come and I am so excited to be here. Many of my colleagues in this business always told me that if you get the chance to do Exit Festival in Serbia you gotta do it. The energy is great and the weather is great and the hospitality has been wonderful from the Exit festival people” Danny Tenaglia
“Exit was held in one of the most interesting venues I have ever played in. Along with being incredibly busy, the vibe in the place was electric. Bringing together a very diverse crowd from across the world and under a unified banner of truly innovative music from a dizzying array of genres, Exit rivals some of the top music festivals of the world.” Dubfire
“It’s a fascinating place with a raw and recent history and It’s got a real energy” Tom Findlay, Groove Armada
“One of the best festival gigs that I have ever done. Amazing venue, thumping sound system and great crowd” John Digweed
“It was a great feeling to play in front of thousands of enthusiastic fans at a Fortress built in the late 1600’s on the Danube river. I am happy to be one of the many diverse artists on their intense line up!” Josh Wink
“It was a great experience to play for such an enthusiastic crowd, placed in this wonderful Amphitheatre with this energy!” Ricardo Villalobos
“Exit was one of the most interesting gigs for me this year. The location was amazing and to feel the warmth of the people dancing and freaking out to my music was inspirational! Respect to the people of Exit for pushing the boundaries with their choice of lineup and bringing great new music one step further east!” Richie Hawtin
“I really enjoyed my stay at the Exit Festival, being very impressed by the perfect organisation and the enthusiastic crowd – I had a great time there! Definitely one of the best Festivals I played!” Sven Väth
