AFP: Exit Festival is held in Serbia despite kovid – Culture

The international music festival Exit, which usually attracts thousands of spectators in Novi Sad, Serbia, will be held in July, and has the ambition to be the first event of this scale organized in Europe since the pandemic, writes Agence France-Presse today about the announced Exit.

The agency quotes the spokesperson of the festival, Sanjin Đukić, according to whom medical experts decided that it is possible to organize the festival in a safe way from a health point of view if the spectators give confirmations about vaccination or a negative test for the corona virus.

“We can say with certainty that the presence of Exit will be much safer than going to a bar or taking a bus,” he told AFP.

The agency states that tickets for the festival, which attracted 200,000 spectators in 2019, are on sale with the date of the event, and adds that the festival will be held from July 8 to 11 in the fortress in Novi Sad.

He also states that music stars such as David Geta, DJ Snake, Nina Kravic, Metronomi and others have been announced.

For this year’s edition of the festival, the organizers look to the trial concerts held recently in Spain and England, which, as it turned out, had no consequences regarding the infection, writes France Press.

However, although the contagion in Serbia is to blame for the downward trajectory, epidemiologists are reluctant when it comes to an event of this magnitude, especially considering that many viewers will come from abroad.

The organizers received a big boost when the mayor of Novi Sad approved the festival at the end of April. Milos Vucevic said that the festival would be “a symbol of Serbia’s victory over the pandemic”.

France Press states that many first-rate music events in Europe have been canceled, and in countries where vaccination rates are better than in Serbia, such as the United Kingdom and Hungary.
