"Exit Festival was great, amazing night, played from 3am till 6.30 when the sun came up and to see so many people in a moat was something else. - Carl Cox
Glastonbury ain't happening this year, so better make your travel plans to the Balkans for EXIT FESTIVAL 2006. This year's event will take place on the 6th – 9th July and will feature around 600 performances in and around the Petrovaradin Fortress overlooking the Danube and Novi Sad, Serbia.
The venue is a castle complex of about three square kilometres and will host an eclectic selection headlined by some of the biggest live bands and dance acts from genres such as hip-hop, house, drum & bass, indie, world music, Latin and rock.
The current roster includes Franz Ferdinand, Pet Shop Boys, Kelis, Cardigans, HIM, The Cult, Dave Clarke, Nick Warren, James Zabeila, Steve Angello & Sebastian Ingrosso. The full list, however, has not yet been announced.
