EXIT is set to take place this summer.
The Serbian music festival EXIT has announced that, in collaboration with the country's Ministry for Health, free vaccines will be given to international artists and fans travelling to the event in July.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabić has said that the country's goal is to reopen completely by June 21, citing the high vaccination rate and decreasing numbers of COVID-19, allowing the festival to be one of the first European music festivals return this year.
"EXIT festival, which our country is globally proud of, happening this July will be one of the important symbols of Serbia's victory over the pandemic," says Brnabić.
Headlined by David Guetta, Tyga and DJ Snake, the festival - taking place from July 8-11 - celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year by offering a few thousand vaccines to those lucky enough to travel to the event.
The date for reopening their country falls on World Music Day, hence the focus on the festival. 3000 tickets for the opening night will also be given free to medical workers.
Entry to the festival will only be allowed the those vaccinated, with a negative PCR or antigen test or who have previously had the virus in the past year.
Recent early results from UK trial events have shown so far that attending indoor concerts and other similar mass gatherings are just as risky as shopping or eating at a restaurant.
Although the data was taken before the 'Indian variant became more widespread in the country, it provides hope that EXIT and other music festivals and concerts throughout the world can return in some form this year.
Further information on EXIT and tickets are available from their website exitfest.org.
