This year’s fast approaching EXIT Festival continues to announce headliners for its one-of-a-kind-spot, the revered Dance Arena. The sunrise at this colossal two-level fortress trench is considered as one of the life-changing experiences with many major global media outlets writing about it in awe. This feeling gets even more special on the last morning when all the other stages finish and the “pilgrimage” towards the Arena begins with people marching to bid farewell to another festival edition. The privilege to close this year’s EXIT belongs to one of the most significant artists of the global electronic scene – Nina Kraviz! The Siberian tastemaker is known for her musically uncompromising and energetic DJ sets where she plays music most others wouldn’t dare. In the last year, her closing sets, seen only at selected festivals, got the whole planet talking. The final night at the Arena will also feature the modern techno sound of the Berlin hero Rødhåd, Nigerian-Lebanese DJ star Nicole Moudaber, our internationally acclaimed selector Tijana T, and the duo of rising domestic techno producers, Scalameriya and Ilija Djoković. The furious techno bill on Sunday, July 9th will be rounded by one more global headliner whose name will soon be revealed, together with the rest of the line-up at this year’s Dance Arena.
EXIT 2016 | Nina Kraviz @ mts Dance Arena:
Last summer Nina Kraviz conquered the largest European fortress with ease, and as she confirmed later in the VICE’s documentary about the phenomenon of EXIT’s iconic stage, the spectacular sight of the morning at the Arena was etched deep in her memory. Since the last visit, Nina published a superb mix for London’s fabric CD series, and recently also launched her new label GALAXIID, sister to трип, in the British capital’s new venue, Printworks. She is resident at Cocoon in Ibiza and has been announced as a special guest at Afterlife, along with this year’s main electronic events who have her listed as the absolute headliner. For her return to Serbia this summer, Nina chose EXIT and the special “closing set” at the Arena!
Nicole Moudaber also remembers well what kind of energy can be felt from the hollow at the ends of the fortress and she decided to put EXIT on her calendar list, which is usually booked well ahead! The techno heroine and probably the favorite performer of her mentor, Carl Cox, has been showered with praise by the world media, and her sets, apart from Exit are also featured at almost all other major festivals. As one of the new icons of Ibiza, she is a confirmed guest at the popular residencies held by Marco Carolla and, of course, Carl Cox!
After Rødhåd had proven his dedication to local clubbers for the third year in a row, this summer it is time for his first ever EXIT! One of the most sought-after techno producers of today, apart from performing at the most important festivals, is a regular in well-known clubs, such as Berghain, Concrete and Fuse. His Dystopian label releases tracks from new generation of stars, such as Recondite, Vril, Alex.Do, as well as the EXIT’s very own Tijana T! After scratching almost all important clubs of our time from her to-do list, such as Berghain, Space, Fuse, Corsica Studios, Bassiani, The Block, and many others, Tijana has some of the leading electronic music events in her itinerary for this year. It is also time to return to the place that she rightfully considers her “own”, from the days when she was the EXIT’s spokesperson – to the majestic Dance Arena!

As the only contemporary music festival that grew from the social activism, EXIT will mark the 50 years since the original 1967’s Summer of Love and remind its fans to peace movement of the 60’s, conveying the messages which in today’s world are needed more than ever.
EXIT – where hedonism meets activism.
