FIRST ACTS REVEALED FOR EXIT FESTIVAL 2011

Arcade Fire, Hadouken!, Tiga, James Zabiela, Gramophonedzie

The first acts revealed to rock the fortress are; Canadian art-rock outfit and festival favourites Arcade Fire, who will be bringing their exceptional live show to Exit's Main Stage. With three critically acclaimed albums under their belt, the most recent 'The Suburbs' reaching #1 in seven territories including the USA, UK and Canada, they are as incredible live as they are enchanting, with multi-instrumentalist band members exchanging instruments throughout their performance. This is sure to be very unique and memorable performance set amongst the majestic walls of the Fortress. 

Gearing up to take to the decks in the legendary Dance Arena for 2011 are; Canadian DJ and producer extraordinaire Tiga, head honcho of Turbo Recordings and a master behind the decks, get set to be wowed by his trademark injection of edgy electronic sounds and grooves. Also performing on the arena is Exit favourite - James Zabiela, who can forget his legendary 2006 closing set performance with an impromptu appearance from Goldie on the mic. Proving to be one of James' best sets of his life to date and one of Exit's also, he has assured us that he will be doing yet another set of the spectacular! Local hero Gramophonedzie, another one of Serbia's finest exports (the first being electricity) had an international #1 dance hit with 'Why Don't You' this summer and will throwing down some pure house tunes exhilarating his devoted fans. The Dance Arena is renowned for being the best on the planet - by DJs and public alike - and the experience of dancing with 20,000 people as the sun rises over the fortress walls is truly mind blowing! 2011 is set to be another year of unadulterated electronic music of the highest calibre and these names are a taster of what's to come.

Along the pebbled streets of the Fortress, new-rave band Hadouken!, will take to the Fusion stage, thrilling their fans with a dynamic performance that they are notorious for. Smashing the charts and the stages they perform on, with similarities to The Prodigy, Hadouken! are set to prove their worth with ease and great might! 

EXIT 2011 plays host to over 400 performances on 20 stages connected by cobbled streets, ramparts and tunnels - a walk through the mystical fortress is like a trip through a magical wonderland.  Music ranges from rock, dance, indie, Latino, reggae, electronica, chill out and regional music, so there is no better festival in the world that brings you so much value and so much variety! EXIT is still the coolest, most adventurous and best value for money festival experience in Europe for the discerning festival goer.  Offering more entertainment, easier and cheaper travel options, stunning weather and an atmosphere unlike any other festival, ensure it's on your list of things to do 2011!

EXIT is one of the most highly regarded festivals in Europe, being nominated for 'Best Overseas Festival' in the UK Festival Awards for the past 4 years, winning the coveted title in 2007 and runner up in 2010. In addition EXIT has also been nominated for 'Best Major Festival' in European Festival Awards for 2 years running and has been shortlisted in the 'Artists Favourite Festival' Category.

And not forgetting the festivals roots and special meaning - Launched 12 years ago as a student initiated protest against the communist Milosevic regime, EXIT has proved that music is a universal language that can connect and bring people together to make the world a better place.  EXIT continues to evolve and bring like minded people together and although it gets bigger each year, the sentiment and unique vibe remains the same.
