The Chemical Brothers – EXIT Fest July 2010

EXIT is the biggest music festival in South Eastern Europe. EXIT has taken place at a beautiful and magical fortress in Novi Sad, since 2001. Year after year the number of visitors is getting bigger; young people come from different parts of the country and Europe. Apart from quality music program that it offers, the festival is a place of wild fun, and you can enjoy the cool atmosphere of the fortress and the positive energy of the city.

Kicking off the new decade in style, EXIT is excited to announce the first acts to be confirmed for the 2010 edition of the festival.

Heading up the line-up is The Chemical Brothers, whose exclusive live shows have never been anything less than staggering. This time around with the promise of something very special up their collective sleeve, get ready for The Chemical Brothers most incredible gig yet! Also taking the stage by technicolour storm will be Mika, with his striking poptastic productions, Norwegian duo Röyksopp with their beautiful melodic electronica.

The Dance Arena plays host to electro kings Crookers, Boys Noize, Erol Alkan and Ed Banger’s SebastiAn, Busy P, Ida Engberg and DJ Mehdi. Whilst also bringing the don of techno Ricardo Villalobos, a highly anticipated show from Moderat live, and Josh Wink celebrating 15 years of Ovum.

The Dance Arena is regarded by many as the best in Europe – if not the planet – and the experience of dancing with 20,000 people as the sun rises over the fortress walls is truly mind blowing.

Big beat sound pioneers, the band with the greatest audience ever gathered at the biggest world festival – Glastonbuty, nerds famous for completely ignoring superstar Liam Galagher’s whims, a duo whose imperative have been live acts from day one, are finally coming to Exit. Even though the audience is used to being surprised by Tom and Ed’s live performances, and to always experiencing a performance at least one step beyond the previous one, this time they have promised a special ace up their sleeve, and invited the audience to get ready for their best performance yet.

The Chemical Brothers started going unstoppably towards electronic music top from their very first performance at Albany pub in London, their audience even back then being Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, James Dean Bradfield, Tim Burgess… It could be supposed that they owe their planetary success to a successful blend of hip-hop, techno, house, spiced up by Balear sound and skillfully incorporated vocals into smart yet giddy music. After almost twenty years of existence and six albums, The Chemical Brothers are one of the most important names in dance music scene, equally wanted in Europe and the States, and most importantly for us – they are experts exactly for huge parties.

And they talked and they danced…
