EXIT Festival’s Life Stream event will take place from September 3rd to 6th, on a spectacular stage housed in the trench of mts Dance Arena, while its online release will take place during two special weekends starting mid-September.

After their live or virtual performances in Novi Sad in the days to come, sets of global and regional electronic stars led by Charlotte de Witte, Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, Ben Klock, Nina Kraviz, Hot Since 82, Black Coffee and Paul van Dyk will be streamed from the 17th to the 20th and from the 24th to the 27th of September.

While the sets at Petrovaradin Fortress will be witnessed by a limited audience since only 250 tickets per day are on sale, the stream weekends will reach online fans all around the planet, who will be able to follow the program on EXIT Festival’s website and official Facebook page, as well as on the Life Stream website. Specially prepared recordings, along with exclusive performances, will feature the partnership between EXIT and the United Nations World Food Programme, the largest global humanitarian organization fighting hunger, as well as numerous tourist and historical sights of Novi Sad and Serbia.

Life Stream enters its new phase in September, in partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme. This project, launched last year, together with Green R:Evolution project, represents EXIT Festival’s largest environmental endeavor to date. In partnership with the world’s largest humanitarian organization the project broadens its scope and in addition to environmental protection, highlights the problem of ending extreme hunger for millions around the world. Given that the pandemic and quarantine measures will bring as many as 270 million people face to face with the problem of extreme hunger before the end of 2020, which is an increase of 80 percent compared to last year, its consequences will be the most severe for those who are already vulnerable. Video materials and messages that address environmental protection and the famine crisis will be broadcast during performances and, in addition to the music festival, an international panel is being prepared to discuss these issues.

Over the course of four evenings, from September 3rd do the 6th, Life Stream’s fantastic stage will be home to 25, mostly live and some featured via transparent screens, global and regional electronic music stars. The Fortress gates will open every evening at 8pm, with Pachamama performers, Twisted Dolls announcing the beginning of the program with their special performances inspired by the four basic elements – earth, water, fire and air.
