Location: Sofia, Bulgaria
Opening for the first time just before they had to close doors due to the pandemic sweeping through Eastern Europe, EXE’s story is one of dedication and determination. Co-founded by a group of friends that includes Bulgarian DJ and production don Pavel Petrov, the crew began promoting in 2014 via one-off events in random locations (climbing centres, photography studios, etc.) before securing their own venue. Once again in full flow, programming includes musically mutated trap session WE on Fridays, Thursday’s classics-orientated WИNAMP, and Saturday’s flagship house and techno soirée, bringing in names like Konstantin Sibold, Loco Dice, Patrick Mason, Anetha, Ida Engberg and more.
