“This year’s EXIT will be a symbol of Serbia’s victory over the pandemic,” Novi Sad’s mayor Milos Vucevic said, adding that entry to the festival will be allowed to people who have been vaccinated or have developed antibodies, as well as those people who are able to show a negative PCR test or produce results of a rapid antigen test, which they can do in Serbia, as well as on festival grounds.
Although in order to enter Serbia, foreigners are required to produce a negative PCR test, it is expected that testing will no longer be required after June.
The mayor’s long-awaited statement confirms that the 20th anniversary of EXIT will be celebrated according to the original plans, from 8th to 11th July at the Petrovaradin Fortress.
An all-star line-up with major headliners is also 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, as this will be decided in the next few weeks.
“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 a 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 on all of our visitors who have the opportunity to get vaccinated before coming to the festival to do so as the health and safety of all visitors, artists and the crew is our top priority,” said Dusan Kovacevic, founder and director of the EXIT festival.
