Once a humble protest against the Miloševic regime, Exit has now grown to become this year’s 'Best Major European festival'. Novi Sad’s breath-taking Petrovaradin Fortress has countless stages tucked within it winding passages and ornate arches where the curious will find everything from mesmirising trance to bouncing funk n’ soul, electro grooves and Serbian rap. Safety isn’t exactly a priority, so beware of loose cobblestones, but the risk is well worth it when you float out of the throbbing dance arena to see the sun rise over the Danube. Wear shorts and baggy tees to combat the sultry heat (book an apartment rather than camp if you don’t want to swelter) and if your struggling to keep on top of the 8pm-8am line-up, get on to the Rakia.
