Exit Festival

The 2020 Exit Festival is due to take place 13th to 16th August (delayed from its usual July dates) and is the 20th edition of the event!

In this section, you can read up on my experiences of attending the festival, and check out our guide to getting there, accommodation and general Exit Festival tips.

More info about the festival can be found at the official Exit Festival website.

There are still some festivals in Croatia taking place in 2020 – check out our guide!

Exit Festival Day by Day Guide

Visit Croatia and three of her friends went to the 2009 Exit Festival – the 10th anniversary of the event – held in Novi Sad, Serbia. Find out what the experience was like here in our day by day guide:

  • Day 1
    Lily Allen, Roots Manuva, Arctic Monkeys…
    A computer system crash at Luton Airport means we reach Novi Sad five hours late. But at least we’re finally there – party time!
  • Day 2
    Manic Street Preachers, Korn…
    Beach time on the Danube and traditional Serbian mixed grill during the day; watched Korn and ate corn at night.
  • Day 3
    Patti Smith, Kraftwerk, Moby, Grandmaster Flash…
    We devour ice cream and pizza to provide sustenance for the Exit Festival’s top night – I’m still hoarse and sore from all the hollering and jumping around.
  • Day 4
    Madness, The Prodigy…
    Mosh pits during The Prodigy scare me. Playing cards and grappa soothe me.

N.B. The acts listed above are the “big” names that played each day on the main stage. There were, of course, many more wondrous performers on the various stages at the Festival each day.
