Leading Serbian music festivals recently unveiled a protocol, created in line with the latest scientific research across Europe, which confirms that, with certain restrictions on entry, the risk of spreading the infection is almost negligible. The protocol stipulates that those who have been vaccinated will be able to enter the festivals, have a certificate that they have survived Covid-19, who have a negative PCR or antigen test, which will make these gatherings one of the safest. The Crisis Staff spoke positively about the protocol, and predicted the return of the manifestations from June 21, provided that at least 50% of adult citizens were vaccinated by that date, with further improvement of the epidemiological situation. The United Festivals of Serbia, led by EXIT and other key actors of the Serbian festival scene, subsequently launched a national campaign for vaccinating young people, thanks to which the process itself accelerated, so that the desired goal remains to vaccinate only 2%, while at the same time the epidemiological situation drastically improved.


The big celebration of the 20th anniversary of the EXIT festival will be held from 8 to 11 July 2021 at the Petrovaradin Fortress, and their performances have already been confirmed by some of the biggest world and regional names such as David Guetta, DJ Snake, Sabaton, Nina Kraviz, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tyga, Solomon, Amelie Lens, Maceo Plex, Denis Sulta, DJ Topic, Robin Schulz, Asaf Avidan, Satori, Boris Brejcha, Honey Dijon, Hot Since 82, Medusa, Paul van Dyk, Artbat and Sheck Wes.

The full schedule by day can be found on the festival’s official website, where all shifts of performances from one date to another will be announced immediately, such as, for example, the shifting of Sabaton’s performances to Friday, July 9th.
