Gloria Gaynor To Perform @ This Year’s Exit Festival

Art & Culture

One of the most famous and influential icons in the world, disco diva Gloria Gaynor will be a special guest at EXIT this year.

After almost 40 years, 20 albums, a large number of hits and superfluous music awards, millions and millions of radio plays, performances on the most important international events, the legendary Gloria Gaynor is coming to hold a historic music lesson with her incredible voice. The Main Stage is about to show its glamorous side edition, and the Queen will take over the Fortress.

A history lesson for those that don't know…if you don't, shame on you!

Gaynor’s version of “Never Can Say Good-Bye” became the first Dance Song to reach #1 status in dance music. Her gargantuan hit ‘I Will Survive’, after 35 years still counts as one of the greatest songs of all time and the unofficial soul anthem of every women’s emancipation movement. Thanks to this song, Gloria is the only winner of the Grammy award for the “Best Disco Record” in the history of this hallowed award! The song “I Will Survive” climbed to the top of Billboard’s Pop Charts and claimed the #1 position on two different occasions and was covered over 200 times. In September 2005 Gloria and her hit song "I Will Survive" were inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame, and VH-1 honored this unparalleled artist with the number one spot on their countdown of the Top 100 Dance Records of All Time.

The EXIT ADVENTURE on takes in the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad on 10th to 13th July, as well as the SEA DANCE festival from 15th to 17th July at the Jaz beach, on the Adriatic Sea. Other acts include; Damon Albarn, Afrojack, Carl Cox, Danny Tenaglia, Disclosure, Rudimental, Skrillex, Stomae, Andy C, Asian Dub Foundation and many more!

EXIT IS A NON PROFIT ORGANISATION: As well as the Music, EXIT never forgets its beginnings and aims to evolutions the revolution it started more than one decade ago with several key topics to improve initiative, engagement and further development of young people. EXIT is the only music festival to be created as an effect of youth activism and aims to continue to mobilise the public opinion and thought leaders in the field of youth development on a regional and a global level.

An agreement with the cooperation of the University of Novi Sad and EXIT was signed, with a goal to promote the importance of culture, science and education among the youth and the society in general. Through a series of public discussions, media articles, workshops, lectures by successful startups, Exit is encouraging young people to take destiny in their own hands and start their own start up business. Several workshops took place on festivals were mentors were giving free lecturing about various topics including; how to create/produce electronic music. The leading European eco-conference Go Group in cooperation with the European Festival Association was also held, alongside a large number of socially responsible actions that were created during the festival, and whose results will come to life during the next edition of the festival. Other projects EXIT are involved with are promoting positive role models for young people in the region and highlight all those young, talented, creative people who work hard everyday to make positive change in their own life and their community. Exit donated hundreds of free tickets to the best students, youth activists, young artists and young humanitarian workers. EXIT. Where hedonism meets activism.
