Holidays + Exit Fest

I was away for a while because of the college stuff and then the more fun stuff like Exit Festival and more holiday action. I'll be here for couple more days and then will be away again for a while. Be patient and stay tuned because the blog will be back in full swing some time in august.
I have to share some of my opinions on the latest Exit Festival which was amazing. Line-up was great as you can see here. There was something for everybody as there was some older stuff to listen as well as upcoming and currently on fire artists.
If i had to choose 5 top acts from this Exit it would be hard so i will just try to say a little something more about those that i loved the most.
First night we watched House Of Pain, Gesaffelstein, Magnetic Man and a couple more acts and the highlight was definitely Gesaffelstein. He killed it on the Elektrana stage and i took some of my friends there who never heard of him and they were amazed.
Second night was all about M.I.A, Dj Oneman, Digital Soundboy Soundsystem and couple of more and the biggest acts were absolutely Dj Oneman and Digital Soundboy crew. MIA was ok but i actually expected much more but then we went to see Oneman and got blown off with his heavy bass riddims including some of the freshest dubstep and bass heavy tunage. Shy FX and the crew then got on the main stage and blew it away with some of his jungle tracks and more jungle classics, Redlights latest tunes and a lot more amazing tunes whether it was jungle, dnb, dubstep, reggae or whatever. It was amazing, we danced our asses off.
Third night was about Santigold, Hadouken! and then the Night Slugs crew. Santi was great and so were these other acts especially Girl Unit who i enjoyed the most that night on the HNS stage.
Last night was more laidback but also amazing as we listened to some Portishead, Digitalism, Nosaj Thing, bit of Photek, David Rodigan and Steve Aoki to finish the Festival with Paul Kalkbrenner. Digitalism and Nosaj Thing were awesome and the sun coming out while Paul Kalkbrenner was dropping Sky & Sand was proper closing of the festival. Amazing night and amazing festival.
We listened to a lot more acts but we were either too short there or busy with something else. Festival was great and i'm already looking forward to next one. Thanx to everyone who was there with me, the whole Sarajevo crew and a special thanx to our host without whom this festival wouldn't be the same. Cheers to all of you and see you next year.
