EXIT Festival 2006: the Balkans are where its at

With Glastonbury not happening this year, Serbia's Exit Festival looks set to take it's crown and show that the Balkans are where it's at. Due to take place on the 6th – 9th July, Exit has always attracted the finest international talent and is a festival experience that is hard to beat.

The full line-up has not been released yet, but requests for tickets are already flooding in. Announced acts so far include Franz Ferdinand, Pet Shop Boys, Suzanne Vega, Tiga, Nick Warren, HIM, M.A.N.D.Y., Technasia and Dave Clarke.

The event takes place in the historic Petrovaradin Fortress, built high on the banks of the River Danube, offering stunning views over the city of Novi Sad. The Fortress site houses 18 performance arenas including the Main Stage and Dance Stage. There's an extreme sports arena, a technology zone, an NGO zone, an open air Cinema, and hot air ballooning.

Approximately 600 performances will take place within the mutli venue castle complex, an area that covers about three square kilometres – an eclectic selection headlined by some of the biggest live bands and dance acts from genres such as hip-hop, house, drum & bass, indie, world music, Latin and rock.

Tickets are on sale now and are priced at €66.75 for the 4 day event but there is a limited amount available for the UK market so you will have to hurry as they will be snapped up fast.
