Serbia’s exalted castle-bound music event, EXIT Festival, bolstered its diverse reputation with the release of phase two of its 2020 lineup. Now added to the already impressive roster are the open-format stalwart, DJ Snake, the indie-dance collective Metronomy, and NYC’s prodigious young rapper Sheck Wes, among a series of other impressive acts.
These varied inclusions join previously announced heavy-hitters like Fatboy Slim, Tyga, Boris Brejcha, ARTBAT and more to celebrated EXIT’s 20-year anniversary.
For two decades this festival has enthralled the worldwide music community. Beyond its extensive lineup that spans more than 40 music areas, EXIT takes place in Serbia’s Petrovaradin Fortress, a historic castle that sits right on the Danube River flowing through the nation’s capital of Novi Sad.
This new phase only brings the lineup to one-third of its full grandeur, so expect more announcements coming between now and July 9 when the festival opens its gates.

DJ Snake has released an absolutely stacked hip-hop posse cut, “Enzo,” featuring Offset from Migos, 21 Savage, Sheck Wes, and Gucci Mane. The French beatsmith continues his international production streak, closely following his a loaded Latin lineup of Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez on the chart-topping “Taki Taki,” with a star-studded cast of rap’s current wavemakers.
