For four days in July, an eighteenth-century fortress near the Danube is swamped by nearly a quarter of a million people. No, they're not gathering for a huge battle re-enactment weekend: this is Exit Festival. Each summer Novi Sad plays host to Serbia's award-winning musical feast for your ears and eyes. Blossoming from a grassroots festival with a highly politicised agenda to the sprawling event it has now become, Exit gives a festival experience unlike any other.
 
Nick Cave's Grinderman
 
True to form, this year the organisers have secured a line-up of some of house, electro and indie rock's biggest names. M.I.A, Pulp, The Arcade Fire, Jamiroquai and Grinderman are all confirmed to play the main stage so far. More names are still being added to each of the festival's six other stages too.
 
 
Fans of the dance-all-night electro can gear up for Deadmau5, Magnetic Man, Dim Mak founder Steve Aoki and a live set from Digitalism. Exit is renowned for pulling some of the biggest crowds to its stages, and putting Eastern European festival culture firmly on the map.
 
M.I.A
 
Last year LCD Soundsystem, Chromeo and Missy Elliott were some of the crowd-pleasers to take on audiences of about 20,000 per stage. Organisers expect just as many dedicated festivalgoers this year, primed and ready for a four-day marathon of music. Accomodation for the festival comes from hostels and budget hotels nearby, so do have a look here for more details on it.

Tickets come in at £95 for the four days (7-10 July), and are set to increase to £105 soon. Flights from London estimated at around £200 (including transfer to the festival site). To be part of an unforgettable weekend, find out more here.
