Martin Garrix has been confirmed as part of this year’s closing ceremony at EXIT Festival, which runs from 12th through 15th July at Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia.
He joins previously announced acts David Guetta, who’s headlining EXIT’s famed Grand Finale party at the Main Stage, and Helena Hauff, Midland, Red Axes, DJ Tennis and others, who are confirmed for the festival’s No Sleep Novi Sad stage. The 2018 line-up also includes Nina Kraviz, Solomun, Maceo Plex, Tale Of Us, Carl Craig, Rødhåd, Boris Brejcha and more.
The closing night events, scheduled for Sunday, 15th July, will be one of the few opportunities in 2018 to see Guetta and Garrix, who recently collaborated together on ‘Like I Do’ and who were seen in the studio together again last month, play the same stage on the same night.
EXIT Festival, in partnership with DJ Mag and Beatport, also recently launched a mix competition, which is giving emerging DJs the opportunity to win a performance slot at this year’s event.
In other Garrix news, the producer and current #1 Top 100 DJ recently dropped his new track, ‘Game Over’, and is working on new music with Khalid. Garrix is also confirmed to perform at Tomorrowland in Belgium, Electric Zoo in NYC and EDC Las Vegas, in addition to his weekly residency at Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel this summer.
