Supporting them will be festival closing royalty Adana Twins and the hit producer Fred Lenix. This will mark Artur and Batish’s first appearance in Serbia since their last breathtaking performance at EXIT 2022, where they kept the Arena electrified until the early morning hours. As we count down the days to Saturday’s show, which will draw a packed Port’s Main Hangar with fans from over 20 countries, we can’t help but reminisce about the most memorable moments of their unforgettable EXIT set!

The global rise of ARTBAT began with their track “Mandrake,“ often hailed as a watershed moment in their career. A string of successful releases followed, including “Uplift“ on Solomun’s Diynamic and collaborations with the likes of WhoMadeWho, Matador, and CamelPhat, leading to bangers like “Closer,“ “Apolo 11“ and “For A Feeling.“ Although they initially made waves on labels like Afterlife and Diynamic, earning worldwide acclaim, they’ve kept true to the underground vibe. Since 2021, they’ve been dropping tracks on their own imprint UPPERGROUND, which has recently gifted us with the colossal new single “Artefakt“ and the latest smash “Remember.“
Their legendary Cercle set overlooking Rio de Janeiro left the global music scene in awe as they spun a thread of their own tracks, each as influential as the next. Hailed as Stars of the Year by Mixmag and consistently clinching the title of Best-Selling Artists on Beatport, they reaffirmed this status last year with mega-hits like “Age Of Love“ (Rave Mix), “Horizon,“ and “Best Of Me“ (feat. Sailor & I). Their hit single “Coming Home“ featured the vocals of John Martin, whom generations remember for the iconic track “Don’t You Worry Child,“ immortalized by Swedish House Mafia.
Their tracks are staples in the sets of world-renowned DJ luminaries like Maceo Plex, Solomun, and Richie Hawtin. Known for deep, bass-heavy sections and striking vocals, they tend to masterfully rework just such songs, turning them into masterpieces for the second time. Standouts include their remixes of “Return to Oz“ (Monolink), “Keep Control“ (Sono), “What Else Is There?“ (Royksöpp), and “All That Matters“ (Kölsch).
ARTBAT deliver an intense, emotionally charged, and cutting-edge sound, with powerful basslines and synths that feel light-years ahead of our time, lending a cosmic vibe to any party their music graces. Expect nothing less at the massive No Sleep party this Saturday, November 11th, at the Main Hangar of the Port of Belgrade!
Joining them on this sonic odyssey will be festival finale royalty, Adana Twins, hit producer Fred Lenix, as well as EXIT‘s own international residents — German-Iranian producer Human Rias, and the young star from Novi Sad, Lanna, whom EXIT Echosystem recently propelled onto a roster that includes the likes of Paul Kalkbrenner and David Guetta!
Tickets are up for grabs on the No Sleep festival website, at promotional prices of 2,290 RSD and 4,490 RSD, respectively.
