Share This Article:
Novi Sad, Serbia hosts one of the biggest and best music festivals in south-eastern Europe. EXIT festival was founded in 2000 by student protestors rebelling against the president of the then the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Slobodan Milosevic. Since forcing him to resign, the four-day celebration has continued to be a force for social change and a gathering place for activists and has helped to re-establish the city as an arts hub of Europe.

EXIT Festival is located in and around the Petrovaradin Fortress, which represents an authentically preserved 18th-century citadel and is nicknamed the Gibraltar of the Danube.
