BELGRADE – The Serbian government will financially support Exit festival for the next six years, Serbian Prime Minister Alekasandar Vucic and Dusan Kovacevic, director of the festival, said Tuesday.


They said that the stable funding would facilitate Exit’s further expansion and participation in various projects, such as Novi Sad’s candidacy for European Capitals of Culture 2021.

Vucic confirmed that the three plus three years agreement on cooperation and support for Exit would be signed in the coming days, to his great satisfaction, since the international awards won by the youth festival had made him proud both as a citizen and as the prime minister.

“You have again made us proud by the results you have achieved and the fact that you have made Serbia special and raised its reputation in Europe and the world,” Vucic told a press conference after meeting with representatives of the festival and Novi Sad Mayor Milos Vucevic in Belgrade today.

Vucic said that Exit would use the money given by the Serbian government to organize the festival in the best way possible.
