With eight festivals, an exclusive VR project at EXPO 2020 Dubai, a partnership with one of the largest metaverse conferences in Europe, 18 various music events, and sold-out NFT collections with world-famous superstars, EXIT has become one of the largest independent festival organisations in the world.

EXIT events, organised last year in Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, UAE, Netherlands, Turkey, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and Slovenia, were visited by around half a million people, which is the largest number in the festival’s history. EXIT also expanded its trophy cabinet with two international and regional accolades. Shortlists for three European Festival Awards, already won by EXIT’s festivals four times in the past, also arrived to close off the previous year.

EXIT, Sea Dance, Sea Star, Ada Divine Awakening, two editions of No Sleep festival, WOMBA, and Get EXITed marked the comeback of the music and event industry in the Balkans, with headliners such as Calvin Harris, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Iggy Azalea, Amelie Lens, ARTBAT, Boris Brejcha, Maceo Plex, Nina Kraviz, Honey Dijon, Monolink, Satori and Sepultura

Last year was also marked by EXIT’s entry into the Metaverse and the launch of one of the first NFT collections in the festival world, as well as NFT festival tickets. Aside from being creative and innovative, this venture was also very successful. All collections were sold out, and EXIT, together with NFT-Tix, won Best Innovation at UK Festival Awards. Moreover, EXIT delivered the best VR festival experience in the world, first presented at EXPO 2020 Dubai and later in the EXITVERSE zones at EXIT and Sea Dance.
