Taking place between 7th – 10th July 2005 at Petrovaradin Fortress, Novi Sad, Federal Republic of Serbia & Montenegro, The State of Exit is a gathering of young people from all over Europe who come together to celebrate freedom, change, peace, and positivity.

It's an opportunity to exchange energy and ideas, to build relationships, and above all else, party long and hard to some of the worlds finest contemporary talent.
