Music superstars, true legends and the hottest newcomers make the first 20 acts announced for the much-awaited Exit Festival's big 20 years celebration festivals that will take place from 9 to 12 July 2020 at the spectacular 18th century Petrovaradin Fortress, overlooking the Danube to festival's hometown Novi Sad in Serbia.
Combined, they bring global hits with more than 20 billion YouTube views featuring various styles of electronic, rock, metal and hip-hop music in a diverse lineup that Exit is known for. David Guetta, Tyga, James Arthur, Fatboy Slim, Boris Brejcha, Sepultura, Meduza, ARTBAT, and Zhu, to name a few, will be playing one of the world’s most beloved and award-winning festivals that started as a peace and freedom movement back in 2000. Ever since its rebellious roots, Exit won two titles of the Best Major European Festival at the European Festival Awards, the Best Overseas Festival at the UK Festival Awards and dozens of other awards and recognition by some of the world’s most influential media.
The first Exit wave would have not been the same without handful of guitar titans, such as the powerful Brazilian Sepultura, a lelegendary metal band with 14 albums and some of the riffs which have left a mark on rock music in general. New York-born, heavy metal musician Billy Milano, with his M.O.D. (Method of Destruction), will also be at the gargantuan Petrovaradin Fortress next year, together with the Russian metalheads Moscow Death Brigade, rock guerrilla Crippled Black Phoenix, dark-wave heroes She Past Away and the Brit deathcore mainstays Bury Tomorrow.
Exit’s 20th anniversary simply could not pass without the return of some of its first headliners, those who were brave, or simply crazy enough to be among the first to attend a new festival in Serbia, a place diametrically opposite to all they had heard about it, a place where they came face to face with the best possible audience in the world. Yes, the Bristol alt-rockers Kosheen and the duo of live bass music icons Roni Size and LTJ Bukem will be returning to the Fortress, for a special Exit reunion.
Tickets for Exit are available via exitfest.org. The official tourist agency of the festival, exittrip.org offers tour packages containing tickets, as well as accommodation and transport options.
