Calvin Harris is one of the greatest superstars in the history of the EXIT festival! Festival’s Main Stage headliner has been ranked #1 highest paid DJ in the world by Forbes magazine for six years in a row, earning more than 300 million dollars. This mega-successful producer, singer and songwriter has won 32 of the most prestigious music awards to date, including a Grammy, Billboard, MTV and Brit, with as many as 118 nominations!
Collabs with Rihanna, Ellie Goulding, The Weeknd, Dua Lipa, Pharrell Williams, and Migos are just a few of the timeless megahits that carry his signature. He is known for breaking records and setting standards – his songs have been streamed via video and audio platforms an impressive 35 billion times, and he has surpassed Michael Jackson in the number of songs from one album to reach the top 10 UK Singles Chart.
Ever since he won “The X Factor,” pop, R&B, and soul singer James Arthur has had worldwide attention, and now he arrives at EXIT’s Main Stage, with over five billion views and streams at the time of writing! His interpretation of the song “Impossible” reached #1 in the UK Singles Chart and became the X Factor’s best-selling winning single. This was followed by big hits like “Say You Won’t Let Go,” which also reached #1 on the UK Singles Chart and became one of the most streamed songs on Spotify. “Train Wreck” and “Naked” came next, while his new album “It’ll All Make Sense in the End” reached the top three on the UK Album Chart, like all of his previous records.
Australian rapper Masked Wolf, who is at the top of the Billboard list of most wanted new artists, joins the team of hitmakers on EXIT’s Main Stage. He is the author of the planetary viral hit “Astronaut in the Ocean,” which was named as TikTok’s most popular song for 2021!
Another “YouTube Billionaire” arriving on the Main Stage is British DJ and hitmaker, Jax Jones. His breakthrough into the music scene happened in collaboration with Duke Dumont on the single “I Got U,” which soon reached the top of the UK Singles Chart. After conquering European radio stations, his hit “You Don’t Know Me” with singer Raye was nominated for a Brit Award, and followed by many popular songs, such as “Instruction,” featuring Demi Lovato and Stefflon Don, “Breathe,” and “All Day and Night” in collaboration with Martin Solveig.
Jax Jones and another member of the EXIT 2k22 line-up, DJ and producer Joel Corry, released a joint single, “Out Out,” a cover of the planetary dance hit “Alors on Danse,” to critical and audience acclaim. Joel Corry is one of the biggest new pop stars in the UK, conquering radio stations and fans with his singles “Sorry,“ “Lonely,” and “Head & Heart.”
The two songs that definitely marked the previous year are the club anthem “Love Tonight,” brought to EXIT by the Australian acid house duo Shouse, and “Do It To It,” which will be performed on the Main Stage by Acraze. Zhu will present his megahits “Faded,” “In the Morning,” and “Working For It,” while the heaviest sounds on this stage will be the responsibility of great bands who marked the history of metal and those who lead the contemporary hardcore, new wave, and post-punk scenes — the legendary Brazilian band Sepultura, iconic Birmingham quartet Napalm Death, Blind Channel from Finland, and the Belarusian band Molchat Doma.
