EXIT Festival Founder and CEO Dušan Kovačević emphasized the importance of the Wu-Tang Clan and their arrival at the Petrovaradin Fortress: “EXIT will be one of the main venues for the great global celebration of 50 years of hip-hop. For this occasion, we have booked stars who will bring in fans from all over the world this summer! Over 40 million sales across eight albums, a street name in their hometown of New York, sold-out stadiums, arenas, and main stages of the world’s biggest festivals — these all confirm the size of the phenomenon that is Wu-Tang, with each of its members a rap star in his own right.”
A band that has profoundly changed the hip-hop game is coming as the festival’s latest headliners. It all started with the debut release “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).” Considered one of the most influential albums ever, this record will celebrate its 30th birthday in Novi Sad. Wu-Tang Clan marked the first ten years of its existence as the craziest, most influential, most avant-garde, and overall best group of the last decade, wrote NME in 2005, and that description has remained the status quo to this day. At the same time, the famous Rolling Stone called them “the best rap group ever,“ NME added that they “changed hip-hop forever, and Billboard defined their importance with a simple phrase: “Wu-Tang is here forever.“
Wu-Tang will be backed by a plethora of big regional acts spanning several generations, including Ajs Nigrutin & Smoke Mardeljano, Prti Bee Gee, Bolesna Braća, Mimi Mercedez, Tam, Macha Ravel, Fox & Surreal, Hiljson Mandela, Z++, 30zona, Crni Cerak & Lacku, Grše, Micka Lifa, Bore Balboa, and many more.
