Over 100,000 people worldwide voted for their favourite festivals, and EXIT topped huge events like Glastonbury, Coachella, Burning Man, Lollapalooza, Sziget, Awakenings, and many more!
“This recognition once again confirms the global reputation of EXIT, which has been considered one of the most prestigious festivals in the world for more than two decades. The fact that the list relied exclusively on votes from a worldwide audience is particularly significant,“ said EXIT Festival founder and CEO Dušan Kovačević.
The voting for the best festivals lasted from the 5th to the 26th of October 2022. The Belgian Tomorrowland took 1st place, followed by the Ultra Music and EDC Las Vegas (US), and Creamfields North (UK). The great significance of this recognition is that it comes from the readers of the well-respected DJ Mag, whose lists of Top 100 festivals, Top 100 DJs and Top 100 clubs are industry benchmarks, especially in electronic music.
Thus, it comes as no surprise that the events that are in the front of EXIT focus solely on electronic music, while EXIT has been nurturing a multi-genre approach for over two decades. One of EXIT’s most prominent features is famous Dance Arena, widely considered the best electronic music stage in the world. A considerable contribution to EXIT’s global popularity in electronic music circles is also made by the No Sleep Novi Sad stage, which now has its own multiple-award-winning festival, as well as several smaller stages that have promoted electronic music for over two decades. EXIT has so far hosted some of the most exciting electronic music acts of the past 20 years, many of whom are regularly featured on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs list.
Aside from EXIT, DJ Mag’s festival list included several festivals from our region, such as Untold, Hideout, Sonus, and Ultra Europe. This year’s vote was the first after 2019 when EXIT was also on the list.
This UK magazine, with a three-decade-long tradition, started as a monthly dedicated to electronic music and is distributed as such in several countries, including the United States, Spain, France, Italy, China, and the Netherlands, with the lists mentioned above as its trademark product.
