“We always want to improve the festival and give more to our audience. Music will still be main focus of the festIval, but new concepts will add to the festival’s carnival spirit and atmosphere.” said Ivan Milivojev, the managing director and one of the founders of the festival.
“In addition, we are opening the festival to ideas from all around the world. As one of the leading group of creative’s in this part of Europe, our intention is to set up the festival as platform for quality creative and social initiatives, and help their realization in the festival and beyond”- said Dusan Kovacevic strategic director of the festival and one of the founders.
From a Student Protest to a World Renowned Festival
EXIT Festival has come a long way in the last 12 years. Evolving from the student protests of 2000, the expression of rebellious spirit of young people in Serbia and fighting for political change and freedom. In addition, EXIT has played a vital role in bringing together the new nations of former Yugoslavia, war-torn by the events at the end of last century. It is the social importance of the Festival that made it unique and globally recognized.
Hence, EXIT 2013 will feature another strong social campaign that will focus on human rights and global freedoms, with a series of films, art exhibitions, lectures and debates being organized with prominent names from that field from around the world.
EXIT is a non-corporate event with a unique history, proving that music is a universal language that can connect and bring people together to make the world a better place. EXIT is more than just a music festival, where hedonism meets activism as EXIT continues to evolve and bring like-minded people together. Exit also supports many community and humanitarian missions.
Today, EXIT is globally acknowledged as one of the most popular European music festivals and its 2012 edition is among one of the top 10 major festivals in the 2012 European Festival Awards.

What the artists say about EXIT:
“To headline here in the Balkans, their own Glastonbury Festival, their Coachella, was a real trip. The audience was fantastic, kids travelling in from all across the region, gave us a great welcome which made for a career high!” John Taylor, Duran Duran
“Editors heard of Exit festival 5 years ago when Franz Ferdinand told us we must try and play it. Our headlining slot 5 years later lived up to all our expectations and more, it was a great moment when the crowd and band have that perfect link on what was a perfect evening. We hope to come again to the fortress of dreams”. Russell Leetch, Editors
“EXIT for me was, from start to finish, the perfect festival. I've always heard so much about it, always wanted to play there to see what it was like for myself, if it really lived up to all the hype. It was just one of the most enjoyable sets I've played personally as a DJ and as a music fan myself, the atmosphere was among the best in the world and the vibe and venue, they were something really unique that I haven't experienced anywhere else. Hands down, one of my top 10 experiences so far, without a doubt.” Fedde le Grand
