First names confirmed for the Exit festival

Set within the walls of the 17th Century Petrovaradin Fortress, EXIT provides an awe inspiring backdrop for the biggest music and cultural event in South East Europe. The first acts to be announced include; Paul Weller, The Sex Pistols, Nightwish, Gogol Bordello, Ministry, The Hives, Sven Vath, Francois K, Ben Watt and Claude Von Stroke with many more to follow.

EXIT is the festival on everyone's lips, with over 10,000 Brits making it their festival of choice in 2007 and winning 'Best European Festival' at the UK Festival Awards. EXIT is your ticket to a once in a lifetime experience, celebrating music, life, freedom and friendship with like minded party people from around the world. Over 600 performances will take place on 25 stages connected by cobbled streets, ramparts and tunnels - a walk through the mystical fortress is like a trip through a magical wonderland. The Dance Arena is regarded by many as the best in Europe and the experience of dancing with 20,000 people as the sun rises over the fortress walls is truly mind blowing.

Renowned for its diverse and adventurous line ups, EXIT encompasses all genres of music from rock to rap, classical to chill, dance to drum & bass and electronic to experimental. Artists who have already performed at EXIT include; Basement Jaxx, Billy Idol, Franz Ferdinand, Fatboy Slim, Morrissey, Massive Attack, The Prodigy, Robert Plant, Snoop Dogg, Scissor Sisters, Underworld, White Stripes and expect more of the same this year.

Launched 9 years ago as a student initiated protest against the communist Milosevic regime, EXIT has proved that music is a universal language that can connect and bring people together to make the world a better place. EXIT is truly an amazing experience that has captured the imagination of festival goers worldwide and although it gets bigger each year, the sentiment remains the same.

4 day festival passes are priced at £72 + a small booking fee and are available direct from the EXIT website and lastminute.com. Camping is available from 8th - 14th July and camping passes are prices at £14 + a small booking fee.
