EXIT festival is back for 2012 and once again it’s shaping up to be a belter. Confirmed headliners include Guns N’ Roses, Duran Duran, New Order and Erykah Badu already. The 4 day festival held at the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia looks to continue its quest as being one of the finest festivals in Europe, both lineup and location-wise.
Since 2001, EXIT has been held at the Petrovaradin Fortress, which lies on the right bank of the Danube in Novi Sad. The foundations of the southern part of the fortress were set by Charles Eugene De Croy on October 18, 1692.
The fortress has an underground tunnel system 16 kilometers long. The unique location contributes to the atmosphere of the festival, providing outstanding acoustics. After centuries of turbulent history, the fortress is on the list of protected monuments as a historical, cultural and artistic center of Novi Sad.
