Last exit to Serbia
This summer will again see thousands of Irish music fans heading abroad to get their festival kicks.
In recent years, many have headed to Serbia for the Exit Festival.
Held in the 18th-century Petrovaradin fortress near Novi Sad in northern Serbia, Exit has been running since 2000 and now attracts an audience of up to 200,000 people, half of whom come from outside the county.
Aside from bringing top international names to Serbia (among them this year the reformed Sex Pistols), the festival also prides itself on having a strong social and political angle.
Its most recent initiative is the “Nema zezanja” (“no kidding“) campaign, which encourages young people to vote in the Serbian presidential election.
This year’s festival runs from July 10th to 13th. For more infomation, go to www.exitfest.org
