There’s no venue quite like this in the United States. Serbia’s EXIT Festival takes place in a 17th century Petrovaradin fortress. If your idea of a good time is grooving to tunes in an ancient castle, then head to Novi Sad this summer for one of Eastern Europe’s most unique festivals.

THREE REASONS TO GO

1. Serbian girls are hot. And very friendly.
2. It’s a great venue to see a show. There’s 25 stages laid in a beautiful arrangement. Check out this virtual tour to get an idea of the fun.
3. Awesome value. Eastern Europe tends to be slightly cheaper than most other music festivals around the world. A four day ticket in 2011 costs only 89 euros (about $125).

WATCH

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
