Thanks to Serbia’s very successful campaign of mass vaccination, Novi Sad Mayor Miloš Vučević confirmed EXIT can happen safely this summer.
The mayor’s long-awaited statement confirms that the 20th anniversary of EXIT will happen. It will mostly be celebrated according to the original plans, and the dates from July 8-11 feel like a sliver lining on the horizon. Those gearing up for attending can look forward to party inside the magnificent Petrovaradin Fortress. EXIT festival surely stands as a testimony of the country’s victory over the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This year’s EXIT will be a symbol of Serbia’s victory over the pandemic” – Mayor Vučević.
Mayor Vučević is also a member of the National Health Committee Fighting Against Pandemic. Entrance to the festival will be allowed to all those who have been vaccinated and those with antibodies. To make the festival accessible to all, everyone else will be able to take a rapid antigen test, which will be provided at low prices, in a specially made area near the festival gates. Above all tourists can already travel to Serbia with a negative PCR test. On the other hand, it is expected that testing to enter the country will no longer be a requirement by June.
“We are very excited about this news and the opportunity to finally celebrate life together with our audience from the whole world! Considering all the difficulties we have been facing for over a year, we already feel that the Big bang of positive energy will create new dimension of the festival experience and make this year’s EXIT unique in the history of the festival. However, we must remain responsible in the coming months and we’re calling for all of our visitors who have the opportunity to get vaccinated before the festival, as no matter what, the health and safety of all visitors, artists and the crew is our top priority” – Dušan Kovačević, EXIT founder & CEO
So far EXIT surprises with an all-star line-up. Most importantly some major headliners are confirmed, including David Guetta, DJ Snake, Tyga, Eric Prydz b2b Four Tet, Paul Kalkbrenner, Nina Kraviz, Boris Brejcha, Sheck Wes, Solomun, Paul van Dyk, Sepultura, Metronomy, Honey Dijon and many others. It is not yet clear if there will be any limitations to the capacity of the festival, but we will certainly get more information in the next few weeks.
Serbia is currently one of the leading European countries when it comes to mass vaccination. Serbia has also been praised as one country in the world where its citizens can choose between the different vaccine manufacturers from around the world and also allows non-residents to apply for vaccination. So far, Serbia has vaccinated tens of thousands of foreigners from all over Europe for free and they will continue with this practice.
“We will also assist all our visitors who don’t have the opportunity to get vaccinated soon in their home countries, if they wish to apply for vaccination in Serbia. We will announce more information about that in the upcoming period.” –Kovačević
All of this will enable the grand celebration of EXIT’s 20th anniversary. The venue is once again the world-famous Petrovaradin Fortress. It is one of the largest medieval fortresses in Europe. Most notably the unique view of the river Danube and city of Novi Sad makes this a fantastic location. The EXIT team will reveal new acts for the line up in the next weeks. We are excited to see who will find their place over the 40 stages and zones all over the fortress.
