Kicking off the new decade in style, EXIT is excited to announce the first acts to be confirmed for the 2010 edition of the festival.
Heading up the line-up for one of only three European Festival shows this summer is The Chemical Brothers, Their exclusive live shows have never been anything less than staggering and this time around with the promise of something very special up their collective sleeve it’s bound to be one of their most incredible gigs yet! Also taking the stage by technicolour storm will be Mika, with his striking poptastic productions, Norwegian duo Royksopp with their beautiful melodic electronica and rising stars Crystal Castles and Does It Offend You, Yeah?.
The Dance Arena kicks off on Thursday with electro kings Crookers, Boys Noize and Erol Alkan. Friday sees the long awaited arrival of the don of techno Ricardo Villalobos, a highly anticipated show from Moderat live, and Josh Wink celebrating 15 years of Ovum. Sunday will be full of fun with Ed Banger’s SebastiAn, Busy P and DJ Mehdi, with Saturday’s line up and even more acts to be announced in the coming months! The Dance Arena is regarded by many as the best in Europe – if not the planet – and the experience of dancing with 20,000 people as the sun rises over the fortress walls is truly mind blowing.
Taking place from Thursday 8th – Sunday 11th July, in the magical Petrovaradin Fortress overlooking the river Danube, EXIT has a variety of stages to appeal to absolutely everyone, cheap food and drink onsite and the best campsite entertainment whilst bathing in the hot Balkan sunshine. EXIT festival ticks all the right boxes and is still the best value festival ticket around!
“We still can’t believe that EXIT attracts such a great audience from all over the world and consider ourselves very lucky. Seeing so many people enjoying themselves at our festival over the years is truly mind blowing. We appreciate the support of all our fans and will continue to make the festival better each year. We’ve also had some amazing artists performing for us over the years and we are excited to offer another diverse and exciting line up this year.” Says Bojan Boskovic, EXIT General Manager
EXIT is one of the most highly regarded festivals in Europe, being nominated for ‘Best Overseas Festival’ in the UK Festival Awards for the past 3 years and winning the coveted title in 2007.
