Decade-long record breaking number of visitors for one of the most popular European festivals

After four splendid days and nights in Serbian city of Novi Sad, Exit Festival’s grand, 15th birthday bash has ended. From 9 to 12 July, around 190.000 people entered through the festival gates, making it an official record for Exit in this decade.

Another record was broken on Saturday with Manu Chau, John Newman and Martin Garrix headlining for the biggest number of daily visits – over 52.000 visitors entered the festival site which beats the previous record of 49.000 in 2007.

John Newman commented after his set via Twitter ” Thank you Serbia/Exit Festival last night was mind numbing! We broke the record together!!”tljKjBJvBxsZ4Z3yPFgaGsCO2W4kQ528NWZ9gtpwUJY

This year’s Exit Festival hosted performances by Emeli Sande, Motorhead, Hardwell, Manu Chao, Martin Garrix, John Newman, Capital Cities, Faithless, Milky Chance, Tom Odell, Eagles of Death Metal, Fear Factory, Chris Liebing, Dixon, Adam Beyer, Leftfield, Oliver Heldens, Roni Size Reprazent, Zomboy, Goldie, Enei, Dirtyphonics, Nuclear Assault, Breakage, Terror, Octave One, Tale of Us, Simian Mobile Disco, Kolsch, Klangkarussell, Napalm Death, 1000mods, Clockwork & Avatism, Paceshifters, High Roll, Bas Mooy and more than 500 artists at 20 different stages at the magnificent and colossal Petrovaradin fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia.


Four nights of stunning fireworks over the gargantuan moats and a top of the line lightshow, engineered carefully to run the program comprised of countless music genres and styles with a timetable that stretched from 7pm to 8am and the campsite on a huge sandy beach at one of the best spots at Danube, made Exit once more a truly remarkable experience on a global festival scene.
