I usually do my travels during the summer holidays, and every year I plan to spend at least a few weeks visiting European music festivals. In 2019 I decided to go to Serbia and finally see what the EXIT festival is all about. This music even has been held since the year 2000 and is known as the best festival in South-Eastern Europe. To be honest, I didn’t know much about it, but the fact that thousands of British music fans are coming every year made me intrigued.

Well, one of the reasons they are coming is ticket prices. This festival is incredibly cheap as they will cost you around 60 euros for all four days, and even much less if you buy them early. The festival is usually held during the first or the second week of July, and it’s typically hot, but this year the weather was pleasant, so I guess I was lucky. I’m one of those people that will skip the rainy day concert, but it was dry all the way. If you are wondering why is the festival so cheap, there are a few reasons. Serbia is a pretty poor country, and locals told me that the situation is getting worse in recent years. In order to sell tickets, EXIT can’t afford to raise the price. 

There is another catch, and that is the line-up. EXIT can’t compare to most other festivals in Western Europe, so they usually settle for one high profile artist as they did with The Cure this year. On the other hand, it’s a huge festival when it comes to quantity, as hundreds of artists are on one of the tens of stages across four days. Almost every genre has its stage, and there is a huge dance arena if you are into electronic music. EXIT is fantastic for ravers who love Free Online Porn Games and DJs like David Guetta or Carl Cox, who are coming almost every year. The main stage is reserved for the biggest stars and up and coming artists like Greta Von Fleet or local bands, though they mostly sing in Serbian. There is an Explosive stage for headbangers and even Latino and karaoke stage if you are brave enough to show your voice to the world.

But what I loved is the location, which is one of the most unique in the world. The festival is set at the old Petrovaradin fortress, which is a huge place near the river Danube. I decided to stay a day or two after the festival so that I can revisit it because of the beautiful view, that excites me as only Free Adult Games do. I’m amazed that only a few days after the festival, there are no traces that it even happened. EXIT was better than I was hoping it will be, and I’m sure I’ll be back at this place sometimes during the next decade.
