For the eight consecutive year, EXIT has been voted among the top 10 European festivals, as well as won an award in the main category at the European Festival Awards.
Based on over million votes from more than 60 countries, EXIT was facing a very tough competition which included the British festival Glastonbury, the Danish Roskilde and the Belgian Tomorrowland.
Also, EXIT’s Revolution Festival, that takes place in Timisoara, Romania, also made it to the finals in two categories. Apart from the main category, the Revolution Festival was also nominated in the category the Best New Festival. In 2014, another EXIT’s festival won this award – Sea Dance Festival that takes place in Montenegro immediately after the EXIT Festival in Novi Sad, Serbia.
At the same time, EXIT’s co-founder and programming director, Ivan Milivojev was nominated for the Award for Excellence and Passion.
Stormzy is the favourite to win the Best Newcomer.
The winners are picked by audiences from entire Europe and the EFA jury which is comprised by the renowned figures from the festival industry. EXIT won the same award in 2013 too, and every subsequent year, it was chosen among the top three festivals in Europe.
