The list of energetic hitmakers, which had, until today, consisted of ALESSO, DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE, BURAK YETER, SOFI TUKKER and LF SYSTEM, has just been completed by Istanbul DJ and producer MAHMUT ORHAN, whose songs have been streamed on various platforms over a billion times.

This July, Main Stage will again rock to the songs we love and listen to on repeat! One of them is “Afraid to Feel,“ which the Scottish producer and DJ duo LF SYSTEM brings to the Petrovaradin Fortress on Friday, 7th July. Their megahit went platinum and topped #1 in the UK Singles Chart, and the musical level they have reached was recently confirmed by the fact that they were nominated for this year’s Global Awards in two categories — Rising Star and Best Dance Act. They remixed the song “Speed Trials On Acid,“ recently released by Carl Cox and Fatboy Slim. They have also performed at the prestigious Radio 1’s Big Weekend and put together a fantastic Boiler Room set.

Also performing on Friday is BURAK YETER, a Turkish producer and DJ with almost a billion views on YouTube alone! For the past decade, the songs “Crash,“ “Friday Night,“ “Happy,“ and “Oh My My“ have conquered the planet, the airwaves, and the festival stages, while “Tuesday“ went platinum in several countries. His 2020 set for EXIT’s Life Stream stands out among the festivals he has performed at, and this July, the audience will have the chance to hear him live on the Main Stage.

Saturday at EXIT is reserved for an absolute hitmaker ALESSO and too fun to handle dance duo SOFI TUKKER are set to perform on the same night! With his second single, “Calling (Losing My Mind),“ featuring One Republic and Swedish House Mafia, Stockholm producer and DJ ALESSO already reached the top of Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart, made it into the Top 10 in Australia and the UK and went double platinum in Sweden. A decade later, he comes to EXIT having had such stellar collaborations as “When I’m Gone“ with Katy Perry, “Under Control“ with Calvin Harris and the duo Hurts, “Every Chance We Get We Run“ with David Guetta, Tegan & Sara and “Heroes (We Could Be)“ with Tove Lo, to continue the star-studded series of performances by the world’s most popular DJs on Main Stage!

Jungle-pop duo SOFI TUKKER are known for their energetic live performances that have brought them to Coachella, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury, and this summer, they’re coming to the EXIT Festival! The megahit “Drinkee“ received a Grammy nomination for the best dance track and a gold plaque in several countries, while “Good Time Girl“ and “Feeling Good“ were featured in the TV series “The New Pope“ and the movie “Birds of Prey,“ respectively. “Fantasy“ and “Best Friend“ conquered the Billboard charts, and many playlists have just recently been expanded with their latest video single, “If Love Is A Skill,“ created in collaboration with the singer LP Giobbi. This duo’s versatility is also evidenced by their collaboration with big musical names, including Alok, Gorgon City, Zhu, Nervo and The Knocks, as well as EXIT’s latest headliner – MAHMUT ORHAN who will take the Main stage of the festival on Sunday, 9th of July!

The Istanbul DJ and producer shares a hit with Sofi Tukker – “Forgive Me,“ and has also remixed their songs “Drinkee“ and “Swing“. All this hints at the kind of energy that awaits us on Sunday! As one of the most promising performers in dance music over the last few years, MAHMUT ORHAN has become indispensable at the world’s leading festivals. The Turkish artist has launched into stardom over the past few years thanks to his unmistakable talent for creating hits such as “Feel,“ “6 Days,“ and “Fly Above,“ which have over a billion combined streams on various platforms.

The festival’s last day will be marked by MAHMUT ORHAN’S performance but also by the hits of the duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, who celebrate two decades of absolute dominance on the electronic scene. The double champions of the most prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 list of the world’s best DJs hold the record for the biggest solo electronic music show in Germany, while in Belgium, with 60,000 tickets sold in three days, they beat records previously held by U2 and Madonna!

This year’s EXIT festival will see them deliver such hits as “Tremor“ (feat. Martin Garrix), “Complicated“ (feat. David Guetta, Kiiara), “Bounce“ (feat. Snoop Dogg), “Hey Baby“ (feat. Diplo), “When I Grow Up“ (feat. Wiz Khalifa), and others, which combined have more than 1.5 billion views on YouTube alone!
