EXIT Festival has by far the best dance stage in the world and this year’s line up just got even bigger. The EXIT electronic line up is hotting up with king of the beat David Guetta leading the charge, playing his distinctive sound and game-changing mega hits. Coming to Novi Sad straight from his Ibizan ‘F*ck Me I’m Famous’ residency David Guetta will be staging the mother of all parties combining different influences and some of the most recognizable house tunes ever. Bringing his live show to the Dance Arena, it will be an unforgettable night! If that isn’t enough, three masters of house music Steve Angello, Mark Knight and Tom Staar will also be taking to the decks making this year’s Dance Arena party one to remember. Adding this to the already announced Fatboy Slim, Dubfire, Eric Prydz, Jeff Mills, Pan-Pot, Apollonia and Seth Troxler to name a few, makes this summers EXIT Festival the place to be for electronic music lovers. Casting a spell on both performers and party goers, the legendary Dance Arena continues to attract like minded people from around the world to party hard and dance all night long!
David Guetta is the most famous DJ and producer in the world will be treating the audience with his super hyped-up set offering everything from pumping house beats to mind boggling electro and of course his chart topping tracks made with A list collaborators. David Guetta came a long way from Paris underground scene to magazine covers and red carpet events all thanks to his obsessive urge for constant improvement. Never ending DJ trips and production adventures with the likes of Kelly Rowland, Akon, Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna and many others made him globally recognizable dance music icon. Hit singles such as „When Love Takes Over“, „Memories“ and „Sweat“ made thousands of hours of radio play worldwide and conquered clubs from Tokyo to Ibiza. With topping prestigious DJ Magazine Top 100 DJ list in 2011, winning two Grammys, MTV Europe Music awards and receiving numerous other recognitions it would seem that there is nothing much left to do for Mr. Guetta. In contrast to that all that is important to him seems to be making people happy: „It doesn’t matter if I make a beat that’s going to be a song on the radio, or if I make a record that’s meant to please DJs, I always just think of making people dance-that’s my first priority.“

Globetrotting DJ extraordinaire and Master of the Sunrise ceremony, Richard Durand is back to present his fourth instalment of the compilation line MIXMAG called “the greatest trance series of them all”. Having previously tracked daybreaks in South Africa and India, with his 2012 Australian edition he shook up the ‘Sunrise’ system, sharing its mix duties for the first time. In 2013 he’s decided to raise the stakes again. For its eleventh excursion the series sharpens the search-field, moving from country to city, as Richard dusk-till-dawns Las Vegas. He’s recruited Hungary’s finest Myon & Shane 54 to the expedition – collectively they’re about to take old Sin City by storm.
Without missing a beat Richard hits the Vegas’ turntables, dealing ‘See Inside’s pacific-harmonics, courtesy of wunderkind Niko Pavlidis. Harmonizing a lower tempo with cooler atmospherics, the glacial translucence of Silence Groove’s ‘Hanging In The Air’ writes breakbeat code into the mix. The series’ knack of card-marking the hottest new trance producers’ music before the season starts continues… Nu-blood studio hounds like AWD, Joshi, The Flyers and Craving stack ISOS’ pack, delivering a straight flush of Strip-raiding moments. ISOS: 11 counterweights its newcomer talent by hooking in plenty of big whalin’, high roller producers too. Ferry Corsten & Giuseppe Ottaviani, BT, Andain and (naturally) Richard himself strike gold time after time with a hot streak of tracks including ‘Magenta’, ‘You Once Told Me’ and ‘Running On Empty’.

Fans of the OFF Festival have already known for a while that The Walkmen, one of the most outstanding and underrated indie rock bands in the US, will be performing at this year’s edition of the festival. Now we’re thrilled to announce that the group will also be serving as curators of the Experimental Stage, which will feature such acts as Thee Oh Sees and a DJ set by Austra (who will also be playing a full performance elsewhere!).
Here’s a full list of guests chosen by The Walkmen for their day at the Experimental Stage:
This former frontman for the legendary band The Czars stepped out back out of the shadows in 2010 with his stirring solo debut, Queen of Denmark. „Like a couple of similarly intense classics before it – Antony & The Johnsons’ I Am a Bird Now and Bon Iver’s For Emma…, Queen of Denmark sounds like a record its creator has been waiting his whole life to make,“ raved the British music magazine Mojo, which rated Grant’s album number one in 2010. A few months ago, the artist came back with a new, equally moving, delicate, and beautiful record, Pale Green Ghosts, which features a guest vocal appearance by Sinead O’Connor along with a bunch of new electronic sounds.

Destined to be one of the biggest love songs to resonate our dance floors this year!.. With big support from the likes of Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Mark Knight, among many, already in the bag, ‘Fall For You‘ is the stunning new single from Sandy Rivera‘s Kings Of Tomorrow featuring the beautiful voice of regular cohort April Morgan. Here’s where the proof lays, that his burgeoning relationship with her is going from strength to strength. ‘Fall For You’ is set to become yet another modern classic with its wandering bass line, down tempo disco-esque rhythms and exquisitely soulful voice, complimenting the tentative lyrics of love to perfection. Equally sublime, yet somewhat darker, ‘It’s Only You’ is a sophisticated and on point arrangement of a deeper and more penetrative bass line, rolling low end synths, and a yearning vocal which simply oozes passion. A flawless production yet again, this release further underlines Sandy’s status as one of the most talented and prolific house music artistsof all time.
Whichever way you look at it, you know who Sandy Rivera is. Whether it’s the words to ‘Finally’, the album you have by Kings of Tomorrow, the stunning production that infiltrates ALL the way through ‘Take Me Back’ or the untold mixes that have penetrated the dance charts over the past 15 years; you KNOW who Sandy Rivera is. Owner of the infamous Blackwiz label, Sandy dropped his first LP in 1997. Labeled ‘The Calling‘ and featuring the man himself on vocals, it set dance floors on fire and brought with it confirmation that something very special had arrived. Sandy’s second album ‘It’s In The Lifestyle‘ came out under the Kings of Tomorrow guise and featured the anthem ‘Finally’ with Julie McKnight.
