Pioneers of electronic music Underworld will also grace Exit Festival this year with their incredible live show.

With now nine albums under their belt, Underworld’s most recent album ‘Barking’ is a thundering return to form after a three year hiatus and sees the band perform a feat of creative regeneration once again. They are the undisputed masters of an insane electronic live show that will make your skin tingle with sheer delight. Karl Hyde‘s energetic and infectious performance, wrapped in all his intense glory will be a truly magnificent sight to behold within the 17th Century Fortress.

Also added to the Exit Festival line-up is Beirut, the perfect band for those craving something completely different.  Fusing elements of Balkan folk, French chanson, and American indie, principle songwriter and singer Zach Condon fills out classically structured pop songs with charming ukulele, flugelhorn, and accordion.

Condon’s exotic takes on music are strongly influenced by the beauty and sounds of places he’s traveled to, evoking memories, warmth, longing, and inevitably, joy. His first album ‘Gulag Orkestar‘ was made single-handedly and to critical acclaim, followed by the massively successful ‘Flying Club Cup’, and most recently the double EP ‘March of the Zapotec/Holland’.

The band’s live sets are equally as breathtaking to watch as they are to listen to, and it’s the Fusion stage that has the pleasure of hosting them.

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.

The first acts to be announced for Exit 2011 include Canadian art-rock outfit and music 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 UK and USA, 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!

2011 will also see pre & post Exit events happening in the city of Novi Sad and Belgrade, so festival goers can spend longer in Serbia experiencing the warmth of the Serbian people whilst having fun and seeing new sights and cities. It’s an adventure and festival in one!
