With Glastonbury not happening this year, festivals across Europe are fighting for the glory of being the leading event of 2006.

Serbia's Exit Festival looks set to build on previous successes and stamp it's name firmly on the European calendar for future summers.

Due to take place on the 6th to 9th July, Exit has always attracted some of the finest international talent and is a festival experience that is hard to beat.

The full line-up has not been released yet, but requests for tickets are already flooding in.

Acts that have been confirmed so far include Franz Ferdinand, Pet Shop Boys, Kelis, Cardigans, HIM, The Cult, Dave Clarke, Nick Warren, James Zabeila, Steve Angello & Sebastian Ingrosso.

The event takes place in the historic Petrovaradin Fortress, built high on the banks of the River Danube, offering stunning views over the city of Novi Sad. The Fortress site houses 18 performance arenas including the Main Stage and Dance Stage. There's an extreme sports arena, technology zone, open air Cinema, and hot air ballooning.

Approximately 600 performances will take place within the mutli venue castle complex, an area that covers about three square kilometers. Acts from a wide range of musical styles will be appearing such as hip-hop, house, drum & bass, indie, world music, Latin and rock.

This year Exit have teamed up with new e-ticketing service eTickets.to, offering an online paperless ticketing service for UK and international music lovers. E-ticket purchasers will get fast entry to the event through their own entrance at the festival.
