Exit Festival’s 15 year celebrations will be marked by another adventure with eight days or music, mayhem and partying. The journey begins at EXIT, from 9 to 12 July at the historic Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia with the party continuing at the second edition of Sea Dance. Winner of the ‘Best Medium Sized Festival’ award at this year’s European Festival Award, Sea Dance will be take place on one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic Coast in Montenegro from 15 – 18 July.
Spearheading the opening ceremony will be the internationally acclaimed, award wining singer/ songwriter Emeli Sandé on 9 July. The British star of Zambian descent achieved three number one
singles in the UK charts, and the best-selling European album in 2012 and 2013 – beating Adele, Arctic Monkeys and Bruno Mars! With her album spending 64 weeks in the top 10 of the UK Album
chart, Sandé has officially broken a record held by the Beatles for the last 50 years!
With numerous awards under her belt including three BRIT awards and three MOBO awards, the 28-year-old singer-songwriter also received two prestigious Ivor Novello awards for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, and Most Performed Work. Emeli Sandé opens a special part of this year’s Exit line-up, featuring the artists behind the most popular songs in contemporary pop music, such are Clean Bandit, John Newman, Tom Odell, Milky Chance, Hardwell, Martin Garrix and Oliver Heldens, who have all reached the top of worldwide charts, and who write their own songs without teams of professional composers and writers. The biggest stars of the new generation will perform at Exit along with legends like Motörhead, Faithless, Manu Chao, Napalm Death, Roni Size, Goldie, Chris Liebing, Adam Beyer and others.
EXIT’s unique fortress venue, offers sunsets over the city of Novi Sad, and you can stumble across stages playing a wide variety of music connected by cobbled streets, ramparts and tunnels.
