This year, the best day is not Friday, but according to many, the strongest day in the nineteen-year-old history of EXIT, which the festival officially devoted to the title of European Youth Capital, Novi Sad.

Only ten days are left until the opening of this year’s Exit, which according to many parameters, intends to exceed all previous editions! The weather forecast with ideal weather conditions with a lot of sun, without rain and with temperatures of up to 32 degrees during the day to pleasant 20 during the night is contributing to that!

The first day of Exit is called OPENS Day, and the audience from more than 90 countries of the world will get introduced with the fact that they have come to European Youth Capital immediately upon arriving at the magnificent Petrovaradin Fortress. OPENS Day is the continuation of the cooperation and continuous support which EXIT Foundation provides to OPENS since the year of 2015 and the initial idea for candidacy.

During 2018 and this year, OPENS 2019 has presented itself to young people from the region and the entire world at the events organised by EXIT Team, and the promotion has also been organised through different projects in which EXIT participates, such as “Youth Heroes”, campaign promoting positive role models in the society, and “OPENS Youth Fair”, mutual regional initiative which positions the Balkans as one of the most attractive destinations for young people at the world. On the first day, EXIT is opened by rock giants The Cure, whose full-blood gig of more than two and a half hours begins at 8.30 p.m. so earlier arrival at the festival is advised! It will be exciting even after the concert because at the Main Stage, the Belgian superstar Lost Frequencies! will make a real OPENS party and the second, equally significant stage of EXIT Festival will welcome the stars from the highest world rang because the king of mts Dance Area Carl Cox is coming back, followed in the conquest to the fortress by Maceo Plex, Charlotte de Witte, Monika Kruse and others!

The traditional opening ceremony, which is always accompanied by a beautiful view of extraordinary fireworks, will follow the performances of the legendary rockers, and soon, it will be known what performance the audience can expect at the Main Stage.

This year’s EXIT Festival will have more than 40 stages and zones!

Mutual projects of Exit and European Youth Capital Novi Sad 2019 – OPENS include the organised widest domestic contest for young musicians, OPENS Play@EXIT, and the young winners of this contest will show their talents and music passion in front of the audience of Exit at four stages of the festival. Those zones include OPENS Future Shock stage, but also OPENS State of EXIT Zone which traditionally gathers organisations of civil sector from the entire region, and this year, it is the oasis of NGO stories, barbershops, place for best break and film, and also the host of the largest Pixelata in the region, but also the winners of the Play@EXIT DJ contest where numerous topics of social significance will be presented. Apart from that, in January, EXIT supported the grand opening of European Youth Capital in Novi Sad.

We are waiting for you at the Fortress!
