STEP INTO THE NEXT CHAPTER_

First revealed acts

Nina Kraviz

After three historic performances in EXIT finales, as well as headlining almost every other leading festival in the world, Nina Kraviz is coming back to Belgrade, the city she remembers very well for some of her earliest steps towards the global scene, outside of her native Russia. Nina returns at the moment when the whole world is watching her every move with the unprecedented attention, while her new music keeps hitting the floors in the shape of genre-bending remixes. In the same time, her distinctive record label трип just had its 20th release, a ten-track LP compilation featuring the purest forms of acid, industrial techno and even gabber. Shuffling constantly sleepless between train stations and airports, the biggest stages and the smallest of record shops, playing among the heavyweights like the one she has become herself and pushing along her side some of the least known talents, Nina remains fundamentally independent. Without any managers to run her career and call the safe shots, she draws creative people from all sides, helping others to get the much-deserved spotlight she carries with her whilst making way for the next generation headliners.

Dax J

DJ Mag’s recent cover star Dax J is famous for his closing sets of the world’s biggest festivals such as Awakenings at ADE. Globally renowned magazines Mixmag, Groove Magazine and DJ Mag proclaimed him the best younger generation DJ, while his historic 10-hour marathon set in the world’s most famous techno club Berghain made him a headliner on numerous globally popular festivals, just like Adam Beyer, Ben Klock and others.

I Hate Models

Nostalgia, passions, the suffering self, the taste for loneliness, dreaming – I Hate Models touches on all these themes with a music submerged by melancholia. Navigating through styles, he arouses as much emotion as exaltation. Synthwave, Early Trance, Cold-Wave or Industrial Music are parts of the multiple influences which create his universe. With an artistic line based on the expression of melancholia and intense emotions, his music can be characterized by a showdown between Love and Hate, Darkness and Light. He rapidly caught the world’s attention thanks to his furious Depeche Mode remixes and a list of singles spearheading the new super-exciting wave on the world electronic scene.

New chapter!

After gathering more than 20,000 electronic music fans at the Petrovaradin Fortress on the additional day of EXIT Festival last summer, which saw performances from Jeff Mills, Ellen Allien, Paula Temple & Rebekah and many more, it’s time for a new festival edition, this time in Belgrade! The capital of Serbia is known for its vibrant clubbing scene and a rising reputation at the global electronic music scene.

From 16 to 18 November, No Sleep is inviting everyone to Belgrade for a weekend full of stellar sets in a mammoth warehouse next to Danube and other celebrated venues in the heart of the Serbian capital.

As a music platform, No Sleep has been a vital part of EXIT Festival for the past four years and in 2018, with its own festival, we are writing a new chapter together.

Port in the heart of the city

Over a sleepless weekend in Belgrade, No Sleep Festival will feature dozens of artists in multiple venues for over thousands of No Sleepers. 

The indoor electronic music festival will include round the clock events across several points in the heart of the city. The two main events will be held at the colossal new Hangar in Port of Belgrade with its industrial setting contrasted by Europe’s largest river Danube and located just 10 minutes of walking from Belgrade’s epicenter, the Republic Square. The whole area is also known for its underground electronic music clubs like Drugstore, KPTM, Dot…

Conference, workshops, afterparties

Besides its two main events, No Sleep Festival will also feature daytime parties, workshops and exhibitions, along with a music conference with very exciting international and local speakers.

Its goal is to address many different aspects and experiences that surround the electronic music scene of today. Convergence of people that have different experiences will spark a dialog on both known and yet unmapped areas of the global and local scene.

Program and more information will soon follow.

How did it all start?

No Sleep was envisioned as a music platform that combines what a great and most intense party should look and feel with groundbreaking and forefronting electronic music and arts of both today and tomorrow.

The initial seed was created with EXIT’s iconic No Sleep Novi Sad stage which quickly gained international fame. Each year, EXIT partners through No Sleep with some of the world’s most exciting clubs which are showcased at the festival and make launch events. The list includes fabric, Tresor, Concrete, Sub Club, Fuse, Arma17, The Bunker NY, Avant Garde at Corsica Studios, Goa Club, Nitsa, Grelle Forelle, Drugstore, 20/44, Tunnel…

Our media partners include Resident Advisor, DJ Mag, Mixmag, XLR8R, Crack Magazine, Data Transmission and few dozen more regional outlets.

“Home to the most interesting lineups!”
— Resident Advisor

“There are few stages in the world that compare.”
— DJ Mag

“The past years have seen Exit’s No Sleep stage become a festival in itself.”
— XLR8R

“Our favorite stage from EXIT Festival.”
— Data Transmission

Nowadays, besides the stage at EXIT and its own festival in Belgrade, No Sleep platform also has its annual beach edition at Sea Dance Festival in Montenegro and even its own limited series of light energy drink packed in recyclable aluminium bottles with No Sleep’s distinguishable design called No Sleep awakened by Guarana.

No Sleep lineups brought 200+ artists over the past four years

Hundreds of artists gathered around No Sleep events to this date, from last year’s No Sleep Festival to No Sleep Novi Sad stage at EXIT, or its beach edition at Sea Dance Festival, to all the numerous No Sleep events accross some of the world’s leading clubs, including both global and regional heroes:
