Mayor of Novi Sad confirms EXIT festival will happen this summer

Thanks to Serbia’s very successful campaign of mass vaccination, Novi Sad Mayor Miloš Vučević confirmed EXIT can happen safely this summer.

This year’s EXIT will be a symbol of Serbia’s victory over the pandemic” Mayor Vučević, who is also a member of the National Health Committee Fighting Against Pandemic, said adding that entry to the festival will be allowed to all those who have been vaccinated and those with antibodies. To make the festival accessible to all, everyone else will be able to take a rapid antigen test, which will be provided at low prices, in a specially made area near the festival gates. Tourists can already travel to Serbia with a negative PCR test and it is expected that testing to enter the country will no longer be a requirement by June.

The mayor’s long-awaited statement confirms that the 20th anniversary of EXIT will be celebrated according to the original plans, from 8th to 11th July at the Petrovaradin Fortress. An all-star line-up with major headliners is also confirmed, including David Guetta, DJ Snake, Tyga, Eric Prydz b2b Four Tet, Paul Kalkbrenner, Nina Kraviz, Boris Brejcha, Sheck Wes, Solomun, Paul van Dyk, Sepultura, Metronomy, Honey Dijon and many others. It is not yet clear if there will be any limitations to the capacity of the festival, as this will be decided in the next few weeks.

We are very excited about this news and the opportunity to finally celebrate life together with our audience from the whole world! Considering all the difficulties we have been facing for over a year, we already feel that the Big bang of positive energy will create new dimension of the festival experience and make this year’s EXIT unique in the history of the festival. However, we must remain responsible in the coming months and we’re calling for all of our visitors who have the opportunity to get vaccinated before the festival, as no matter what, the health and safety of all visitors, artists and the crew is our top priority” said Dušan Kovačević, founder and CEO of the EXIT festival.

Serbia is currently one of the leading European countries when it comes to mass vaccination with highest percentage in Europe when it comes to people who have had both shots. Serbia has also been praised as the only country in the world where its citizens can choose between the different vaccine manufacturers from around the world and it’s the only country where non-residents can apply for vaccination. So far, Serbia has vaccinated tens of thousands of foreigners from all over Europe for free and they will continue with this practice. “We will also assist all our visitors who don’t have the opportunity to get vaccinated soon in their home countries, if they wish to apply for vaccination in Serbia. We will announce more information about that in the upcoming period”, concluded Kovačević.

All of this will enable the grand celebration of EXIT’s 20th anniversary to take place from 8th till the 11 July 2021. The venue is once again the world-famous Petrovaradin Fortress, one of the largest medieval fortresses in Europe with a unique view of the river Danube and city of Novi Sad. The Exit team will reveal new acts confirmed for the line up next week, who will find their place over 40 stages and zones all over the fortress.

WESTWAY LAB 8th edition will kick off a new Iberian Focus

Westway LAB, Portugal’s first international showcase festival and professional music conference event, has announced its 8th edition, April 7-10th, in Guimarães.

This new edition of the Westway LAB Festival and Conference will launch an Iberian focus on music from Portugal and Spain, with the Spanish focus originally intended for 2020, and now scheduled for 2022. Due to the pandemic, none of the Spanish artists originally invited had the chance to play in Guimarães yet - so it makes sense to work now, starting with the online conferences at Westway LAB 2021, towards a full mission and artist exchange in April 2022.

The shifting paradigms accelerated by the pandemic have illustrated the importance of the local going global while simultaneously remaining local and regional - and stronger connections are needed between the diverse Iberian regions that make up Portugal and Spain. The Iberian focus will virtually showcase 4 Spanish acts under the “Spanish Wave” umbrella, in anticipation of more to come - physically in Guimarães - in April 2022. Keynote speakers include Robert Grima, President of Live Nation Spain – Madrid, as well as João Carvalho from the Paredes de Coura and Primavera Porto Festivals.

Westway LAB remains an active participant in the ETEP network, fostering the circulation of European talent in Portugal as well as internationalizing Portuguese talent abroad: Westway LAB’s renewed partnership with Portugal’s export office, WHY Portugal, will see the 5th edition of the WHY Portugal Event present new artists from Portugal, as well as the presentation of the new Music Moves Europe projects MCS Lab - a joint effort from WHY Portugal, Music Export Poland, and CNM; and European Ghosts, a project by Portugal’s SCL Agency and Norway’s NORD University.

This year, the Independent Community will gather at the first IMPALA CAMPUS training workshop on April 6th, before joining the Westway PRO conference for the remainder of the event.
Co-founder of Westway LAB in 2014, Portugal’s independent trade association AMAEI will also invite UFI, the Spanish Union of Independent Labels, to participate in an Iberian meeting of independent labels during the 8th edition of Westway LAB.

Finally, on the music publishing side of things, Westway PRO will present a new conference track dedicated to music publishing and synch, presenting the Portugal in Synch project co-financed by DGartes.

The scope of the 8th edition of Westway LAB will therefore extend to all three main sub-sectors of the music industry: live music, recorded music, and music publishing, also continuing its ongoing special attention to artist development, synch and music rights.

Our wishes of a great 2021 to everyone - We look forward to seeing you - virtually for now - “in” Guimarães in April 2021 for the 8th edition of Westway LAB!

The latter two have already announced part of their program, with artists including Dave Clarke and Oliver Heldens for Melkweg and Avalon Emerson and Speedy J presents STOOR live for Paradiso set to take the stage.

ADE Conference 2021 and free online community
Music professionals can gear up for the ADE Pro conference program at Amsterdam's iconic Felix Meritis in October. In addition, the Amsterdam Dance Event Foundation extends its support to the live music industry by inviting music professionals to become an active part of the road to ADE 2021 on its online B2B platform, completely free of charge. 

Through key learnings from international success cases, innovations and strategies shared across a growing network of peers, ADE invites members of the global electronic music community to find out together how the post-Covid structure of the music business will look as the live industry rebuilds and reopens globally. Anyone interested can sign up for the first sessions and join the discussion with key industry players and experts, starting in April 2021.

Moreover, music professionals can now register for the physical ADE Pro Pass at a guaranteed lowest price by signing up here.

Lowlands Festival Confirm First 54 Acts with The Chemical Brothers, Liam Gallagher, Arlo Parks, Amelie Lens, Balthazar, Denzel Curry and more

The developments around corona follow each other at lightning speed. Although we are still dealing with severe measures at the moment, there is fortunately more positive news to report. For example, vaccinations are now taking place at a rapid pace and the Dutch government's current expectation is that all vulnerable people who are susceptible to hospitalization will be protected by the end of June. This removes the pressure on hospitals and care, leaving room in society to move freely again. We assume that this will make it possible for Lowlands to take place in a safe and responsible manner from 20 to 22 August 2021 - without a distance of one and a half meters or a restriction in the number of visitors. Of course, permission from the government will be required by then. Subject to that permission, we would like to let you know what the first acts are that we have booked for Lowlands 2021:

Altın Gün | Amelie Lens | Arlo Parks | AURORA | Balthazar | Bazart | Bendik Giske | Biig Piig | Caribou | Cavetown | The Chemical Brothers | Cleopatrick | Declan McKenna | Denzel Curry | Droeloe | Dry Cleaning | Eefje de Visser | Ezra Collective | Fatima Yamaha | Franc Moody | Froukje | Georgia | Goldlink | Gotu Jim | Heilung | Igorrr | Imanu | Jack Garratt | Joe & the Shitboys | Kaytranada | Kelly Lee Owens | Kevin & The Animals | KOFFEE | Liam Gallagher | Mirella Kroes | Moses Boyd | Murdock | Noisia DJ Set | Noord Nederlands Orkest | Nova Twins | Octo Octa b2b Eris Drew | Oliver Tree | The Opposites | Orla Gartland | Palaye Royale | Pendulum Trinity | S10 | shame | Sleaford Mods | slowthai | Typhoon | Working Men’s Club | YUNGBLUD | Yves Tumor

We cannot predict the future. Due to measures that may still apply during Lowlands, it may turn out that not all acts will be able to attend. We are not only dependent on measures in the Netherlands, but also on those in countries where acts come from and / or are going to tour. The most important thing at the moment is that all these acts have wholeheartedly indicated that they will be there when the circumstances permit. Of course we are in talks with more acts that have not yet been confirmed.

We are convinced that, if the vaccination coverage continues to develop positively, the vaccines are effective and care is spared, the measures will be relaxed and we will soon be able to meet each other in the polder in August. We are working on various scenarios to safely organize Lowlands in which, among other things, rapid tests could play a role. We can imagine that you have questions about that. Because no one knows exactly how the virus will behave in the near future and what the demands from politicians will be, we cannot yet provide a detailed answer to all questions. As Lowlands gets closer, we will of course keep you closely informed about this. If it turns out that, contrary to expectations, Lowlands cannot continue, a ticket arrangement will of course be drawn up again.

TICKET SALES
Last year, tickets for Lowlands 2020 were completely sold out in five hours. Because the festival could not take place due to corona, visitors were given the option to request a refund. As a result, a small number of tickets will be available for Lowlands 2021. These tickets will go on sale at a later time, the start date of ticket sales will be announced via the Lowlands website and socials. Tickets for the Gllamcamp, the Campercamping, parking tickets etc. will also be available. A full festival ticket costs €230,- (including €10,- service fee).

This is our resistance, and we will keep active, even with every intent to shut us down. No matter what, we will continue to turn the volume up and continue what we’ve always done –– connecting and inspiring people over the power and joy of music.”

Versuz Dance & Nightclub, a 1200-capacity nightclub in Hasselt, Belgium and one of 13 top international venues participating in the event says: “During the past year, it became clear that the importance of getting together and enjoying music and life together cannot be underestimated. Of course, nightlife has a top layer that’s all about partying, big effects, and a crazy atmosphere — but under that layer, there’s a uniting vibe that can create friendship, love, and community. And it’s exactly that vibe that is missing in so many peoples’ lives and live-streaming platforms right now. Any initiative to bring people together, like this event, is something we gladly support, because it is what everyone really needs right now.”

Raluca Cherciu, CEO, Paarti says:
“At Paarti, we believe the best live performances and events are more than music. They’re about connecting, sharing, finding joy in the moment — surrounded by the power and energy of all the people around us.”

“We are launching a new kind of platform kicking off with a historic event that brings together some of the biggest names in music, in support of music heroes. With the world’s most inclusive, engaged audience we are committed to give music lovers, artists, and industry players a more meaningful, more magical way to celebrate live music and the human connections it empowers. Because at Paarti, live isn’t just an in-the-moment experience — it’s the unforgettable connections that last long after the house lights come up.

“Let’s make sure our favourite places, live acts, and artists continue to survive, thrive, and grow.”

Noa Beach Club, Zrce, Croatia says:
What always drives us is the passion and love for music. For Noa, “the beat" never stops, it keeps playing just like our hearts that live for this industry. That is why Noa Beach Club decided to join this initiative because it arose from a sincere desire to continue living, having fun, and socializing from all over the world. Luckily, technology today allows us to do that, and this project is going to take it to another level.  

It is important that clubs are opened so that generations are not deprived of socialization, so that artists continue their work for which they were born, so that friendships, love, and memories are created for a lifetime. Because it is what is all about.  

The unity and cooperation we feel in this project will be remembered for a long time. We are all working hard, preparing for the season, and for our guests and fans we will always go the extra mile! Noa wants you to stay tuned and positive! We look forward to this summer and the fulfilment of many dreams in the years to come.“
