EXIT Festival 2011

Just back from the 4 day festival of Exit, held in the Petrovaradin Fortress of Novi Sad, Serbia…

Sorry Seth, I had to show the world you’re wonderful dancing!

“The EXIT festival came into being in the year 2000 as an act of rebellion against the regime of Slobodan Milosevic, that had for years been keeping Serbia out of touch with the outside world. That summer thousands of young people from Novi Sad gathered in the campus park by the Danube River where concerts, parties and art performances took place.  There were also discussions and debates where the young were able to express their opposition to the imposed nationalism, xenophobia, censorship and repression. The event lasted for 100 days and its grand finale was the ‘Get out to Vote’ party, which was held one day before the elections that saw the downfall of Milosevic.”

We are meant to read EXIT!

aahhhhh, weep.

The Dance stage positioned in the moat of the fortress.

I think from now on I’ll be a fair weather festival goer, to my delight there wasn’t a drop of mud in sight!!
