EXIT FESTIVAL, Music festivals are a big deal for music freaks and party animals and in Europe; people usually are crazy for them. The concept of music festivals grew from 1969, after the amazing US Woodstock Festival. The brilliant idea of getting different music artists, under one roof, was just the perfect one needed by the party freaks of the 1990s.
Live performances, numerous artists and an endless outdoor area to move and dance around; doesn’t it all sound too good to be real? Well, this does not just sound evoking but it actually is and it arises a different feeling for the music and dance lovers too.
Festivals, specifically music festivals caught the eye of the audience since the Woodstock festival and the concept grew so massively that now, there is a huge list of music festivals that take place in Europe every year.
If you are looking forward to start experiencing the magic of music festivals then there are definitely a lot of them that you can visit. However, we personally think that Exit music Festival makes every penny worth it and you would not want to miss out on this specific event at all.
In a diversity of festivals, this one is pretty amazing and makes you forget every single worry of the day! So let’s start with discovering everything that you must know about Exit as to how it started and what long journey it has been through to be on the top music festivals list.
HOW IT STARTED
The festival was founded in 2000 and was never intended to become a major electronic music festival at all. It was a protest done by students, against the government. They held the protest in a simple university park, with the intention to fight for freedom and to save democracy.
The protest took place in 2001 again, in the Petrovaradian Fortress and thus, it became a huge festival. What remains common in this festival, since the day it started is that it still holds its social importance and a lot of social activities are inculcated in it as well.
Exit is an award-winning music festival and it has managed to gather immense praise from all across the world. It won the best overs eases festival award in 2007, at the UK festival awards. In 2013, it received the best major festival award. It has also been ranked at number 1, amongst the top 10 oversea awards in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
