The dynamic and talented Baby Lasagna, with his unique and memorable rock and roll sound, has become a favorite not only in Europe but globally. Having garnered overwhelmingly the most votes from Eurovision fans and leaving the big stage as the people’s champion, he will arrive at Petrovaradin Fortress on July 10 to kick off the 24th edition of the EXIT Festival with his bold guitar sounds and distinctive dance moves. Following Konstrakta’s virtuosic performance at the Fortress in 2022, Baby Lasagna is the first regional artist to headline EXIT.

“We are extremely proud that someone from our region won over the Eurovision audience, especially with a rock and roll track. It’s great to see that urban sound gaining more ground at Eurovision,” said Dušan Kovačević, founder and director of EXIT Festival. 

Marko Purišić, aka Baby Lasagna, first emerged as a solo artist less than a year ago. However, with his participation in Croatia’s national Eurovision song selection — Dora, he quickly cemented his position in the musical milieu, not just regionally but globally. From the moment he won first place at Dora to the finale at Eurovision, he remained the ultimate fan favorite, which was proven in the final tally. Baby Lasagna secured overwhelmingly the most votes from fans of this televised spectacle from over 100 countries worldwide, and although he finished in second place, he left Malmö as the undisputed people’s champion. 

This July, the singer-songwriter from Umag will bring his distinctive sound to the Main Stage at the EXIT Festival. With his entertaining music and satirical lyrics that deeply weave messages about contemporary issues, Lasagna will shake the fortress’s largest stage. In addition to his Eurovision mega-hit, which landed in the top 5 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 list and has amassed over 4 million views on YouTube, Baby Lasagna has two other tracks, “Don’t Hate Yourself, but Don’t Love Yourself Too Much,“ and “IG BOI,“ singles that will feature on his debut album “Demons & Mosquitos.” Before stepping onto EXIT’s grandest stage in July, the Umag native will perform in his hometown as one of the headliners at the Sea Star Festival in May. 

Marko’s performance at EXIT will also mark a strong start to the festival. His guitar riffs, dynamic drums, and explosive energy will perfectly encapsulate the fortress’s vibe over the four days of the festival. 

This year’s EXIT lineup also includes Tom Morello, Black Eyed Peas, Gucci Mane, Carl Cox, Alok, Oliver Tree, John Newman Hybrid DJ Set, Maceo Plex, Black Coffee, Ofenbach, Kenya Grace, Steve Angello, Cavalera, Bonobo DJ Set, Sara Landry, Klangkuenstler, Rudim3ntal and many others. 

The next edition of the EXIT Festival, themed EXIT Starseeds with the slogan “Awakening Our Superpowers Together,” will be held from July 11 to 14, 2024 at the Petrovaradin Fortress. A special “day zero” on July 10 is reserved for a unique Starseeds Takeover performance on the Tesla Universe Stage.
