She once again had the honour of playing the last set of the festival. On that summer morning, a crowded Dance Arena breathed as one during a multi-hour set, at the end of which in the atmosphere experienced only at stadium rock concerts cheering crowd chanted her name and lead to an encore featuring the cult-favorite track “Ghetto Kraviz.” An official video of this exceptional performance will be shown to the public for the first time on Thursday, the 14th of January at 8:21 pm CET, announcing Nina’s new arrival at the Petrovaradin Fortress to celebrate the EXIT festival’s 20th birthday.
AMELIE LENS — Friday, 15th of January 8:21 pm CET
Amelie Lens’ performance at the Dance Arena in 2019 is remembered as one of the best closing scenes in the festival’s history. This techno diva, inspired by the connection between The Prodigy and EXIT, played “Firestarter” at the very end of a flawless set, in honour of the deceased Keith Flint, causing euphoria in the crowd. Interesting fact is that it’s the last song played at EXIT festival until today. The world premiere of the stream will be broadcast on Friday, the 15th of January, at 8:21 pm CET.
