EXIT Festival is the underground dance jewel of Novi Sad, Serbia. It won the EU Festival Award for Best Major European Festival in 2014, at the EU Festival Awards, and part of that distinction is owed to its beautiful setting in the Petrovaradin Fortress.

Clips of editions gone by can only hint at the wildness that goes down, but for the 2018 edition, EXIT is ready to take things to deeper, darker, exciting new depths with a totally-techno lineup unlike anything it's brought audiences before.

It's a very special first day celebration going down Thursday, July 12, and it's being hailed as the start of a "New Era" for the mts Dance Arena. Techno Heroes will kick-off EXIT 2018 celebrations with performances from Richie Hawtin, a back-to-back set from techno's ruling couple Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg, Berlin's Ben Klock, rising star Amelie Lens, plus Anastasia Kristensen, Dj Jock and Dusan Nikolic b2b Runy.

This is the 16th edition of EXIT Festival, so expect more massive announcements to come soon enough. For now, check out the Techno Heroes announcement below, and visit EXIT Fest online for more details and information.
