‘Summer of Love’ in an abandoned fort: EXIT 2018

Grown from student protest into one of the biggest music festivals in Europe. Also this year, EXIT’s “Summer of Love” takes place at the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Enormous partly destroyed ramparts surround the stages and getting there is only possible via stone bridges and ancient tunnels. The Danube River is flowing at the bottom the ramparts and across the water you can see the centre of Novi Sad. Known for the lovely food and the affordable nightlife. Around 6 pm, the first visitors enter the festival terrain and the first artists take their places. When the sun sets down, bigger artists make their appearance. At night, Exit is at her best. This lasts till the sun comes up and even the most diehard festival visitors return to their sleeping spots. EXIT 2018 takes place from July 12 to July 15.

See you abroad!

The location

Novi Sad, Serbia

Novi Sad is a sparkling city with approximated 300.000 inhabitants. The city centre is a mix of beautiful squares with impressive churches and ancient buildings, but also ugly architecture from the seventies, messy streets and alleys filled with little shops and cafeterias are present. In 10 minutes you walk from the centre to the Danube Bridge. At the left side of the bridge you will find several beaches, and at the other side something more special: the biggest fortress of Petrovaradin.
