Each year Exit promotes Serbian and regional acts, both less known and bigger, regionally and internationally, recognized by the wide spectre of audience. This year, you will get the chance to see your favourite performers opening for the biggest names in the world!
Before the legendary Duran Duran and the twisty Gossip, on Thursday we welcome Kriške, a band exploring the genre and style boundaries and overcoming them by innovations and an open approach that unifies various influences from the past and the present world of alternative music. Their debut album was released in late March 2011 for “Odličan Hrčak” record label. As opposed to their studio work, Kriške offer a more energetic, a harder sound live, so the audience always finds themselves surprised with the songs the band plays, which only justify their creativity and perseverance in the music world! An inevitable start of a wonderful festival experience!
A day later, we get the chance to see and hear a band from Belgrade, Ola Horhe. Ola Horhe consists of two members – pianist Andy Pavlov who uses unbelievable original synthesizers from the 70’s and the 80’s, and a multiinstrumentalist Attack El Robot on drums, also famous also as the bassist for Kriške, who open the Main Stage the day earlier. Every performance by Ola Horhe evokes a strong response with the audience, proven in 2009. when Popboks webzine named them Best New Band. They promise us a retrofuturistic sound within an Indie mainframe. A perfect introduction for Hercules and Love Affair and New Order, right?
On Saturday, the third day of the festival, Reflections of Internal Rain will groove up the festival audience with a unique Hardcore-Punk sound. The band was formed in Novi Sad in 2004, and after three successful releases and as many European tours, they are promoting their latest album “Answers“ released in Serbia, Italy and Great Britain with a big 2012 European tour, with the last scheduled date being exactly - Exit Festival!
Finally, we are happy to announce the performances of two well-known Serbian bands - ŽeneKese and Partibrejkers on Sunday, July 15!
ŽeneKese, a fivesome from Belgrade was formed in 2004. Standing out in the crowd with their energetic live performances, they have been active on stage since 2006, playing clubs and festivals in Serbia and the whole region. The band will present songs from their debut “ŽeneKese“, as well as last year’s “Rado bih te sreo“ (English: I’d Gladly Meet You), released on Exit Label among others
