EXIT Universe stars support each other!

31. May 2023. — Author: EXIT

Skrillex, the eight-time Grammy Award winner and artist who has boldly claimed this year as his own, expressed undisguised delight on Twitter, saying that British DJ icon Ben UFO, who has been topping the charts for years and who will perform at Exit’s NSNS this year, is “one of the most important DJs of our time,” and eager fans have already started speculating about a potential surprise B2B set at EXIT Festival!

After two new albums – Don’t Get Too Closeand Quest For Fire, a series of sold-out shows, and two more LP releases in the works, the unstoppable Skrillex returns to Petrovaradin Fortress on Friday, July 7, at the peak of his career, ready to once again conquer EXIT’s Gorki List Main Stage. The day before, on the first night of the festival, UK’s Ben UFO, one of the most genre-diverse producers, whom Skrillex called one of the most important DJs of our time,will perform on the famous NSNS stage.

The unabashed fandom of one giant of the electronic music scene for another triggered an avalanche of positive reactions. The very first comment reminds us that both Skrillex and Ben UFO are performing at this year’s EXIT festival and calls for the “orchestration” of a B2B set. “I would pay so much money for this” and “would’ve been absolutely historic” are just some of the responses to this idea, while the official EXIT Festival Twitter account confirmed that Skrillex will arrive in Novi Sad a day earlier, on July 6, the night when Ben UFO is scheduled to perform on the NSNS stage!

Skrillex’s performance on the Main Stage in 2014 is remembered as one of the most spectacular in EXIT’s history, while the music world still recounts the famous story of how this production genius, delighted by the atmosphere, first extended his set at mts Dance Arena and then canceled his flight and stayed with his crew until the end of the festival, where he visited different stages, delivering surprise performances.
