Exit Festival 2017
Created from a student movement fighting for peace and democracy in Serbia and The Balkans, it grew fast to become one of the biggest summer festivals in Europe. Indeed, this award-winning event has kept a strong social mission to help youth in The Balkans and their surroundings.
When the sun goes down, the best DJs make their appearance on the stages, and people can enjoy the house, techno and hip-hop music vibes! It’s no coincidence that Serbia has been renowned as one of the best festival countries in the world. Moreover, partying in the Petrovaradin Fortress is a real asset for festival goers with its beautiful surroundings and a heavenly view over the Novi Sad city!

The festival takes place in this immense and unique setting called “the Gilbratar of the Danube”, by its location on the right bank of this river. Constructed in 88 years until 1780, this underground fortress is made of 4 floors with 16 kms of corridors and resting places. Completely demilitarized in the mid-20th century, it is now proclaimed for a historical monument, particularly with its distinctive Clock Tower, which stands at the top of the rocks. Climb it and enjoy an amazing sunset with Novi Sad’s view!
How to get there
FROM AIRPORT TO CITY:
- Your trip is excluding transfers. Along with your travel documents, you will receive tailor made directions. In them, we will tell you how to travel from airport to hotel and from hotel to the venue.
- We recommend you to arrive at Belgrade, Budapest or Zagreb airport. From there, you’ll be able to take an Exit coach to Novi Sad (you can book tickets on Exit website) :
- € 9,90 from Belgrade (1h½)
- € 24,90 from Budapest (5h½)
- € 39,90 from Zagreb (6h).
- When arriving at Budapest, you also have the possibility to take a train to Novi Sad. There will be shuttles from the airport to the train station.
FROM CITY TO VENUE:
We recommend walking to the venue as from the city centre it is only a 15 minute walk to the Petrovaradin Fortress!
Novi Sad is a chipper town with all the spoils and none of the stress of the big cities. The local youth hangs out in beautiful parks and little cafes, and outdoor bars pack out nightly. The looming Petrovaradin Citadel keeps a stern eye on proceedings, loosening its tie each July to host Serbia's largest music festival EXIT. All of Novi Sad's attractions are walking distance from the happening pedestrian thoroughfare, Zmaj Jovina, which stretches from the town square (Trg Slobode) to Dunavska street.
