+ MANY MORE TO BE AWAKENED SOON
The new edition of No Sleep Festival is coming in April, after a two-year break! After only two editions, No Sleep has already been named Best New Festival in January 2020 at the prestigious European Festival Awards.
No Sleep so far brought together some of the most sought-after artists on the electronic scene, including Fatboy Slim, Nina Kraviz, Amelie Lens, Bicep, Cassius, Kobosil, Dax J, Terry Francis, Mind Against, Lee Burridge, Olof Dreijer and many others.
The No Sleep Festival is realized with the support of the famous local brand Guarana. During the weekend’s 48 hours, it features both leading global electronic music performers and upcoming stars, with various artists from the regional and local scene.
How Did It All Start?
The No Sleep music platform, created by EXIT with the support of the popular local brand Guarana, has built an enviable reputation on the world stage in recent years, primarily through the iconic stages at EXIT and Sea Dance, but also numerous No Sleep events in global capitals such as London, New York, Rome, São Paulo, Barcelona, Brussels, and others.
Thanks to the No Sleep Novi Sad stage at EXIT, the inspiration for the launch of the entire music platform, some of the world’s most famous clubs come together in one place each year. The list includes fabric, Concrete, Tresor, Sub Club, Fuse, Arma17, The Bunker New York, Nitsa, Salon des Amateurs and Grelle Forelle, as well as local clubs such as Belgrade’s Drugstore, 20/44 and Novi Sad’s Tunnel.
Port in the Heart of the City
So far, it has been held at several well-known club locations, while the central programme was located in the industrial environment of the Port of Belgrade and its Main Hangar on the banks of the Danube.
The Main Hangar is the epicentre for electronic-music events in Belgrade, located only 1,500 metres from Republic Square. The central location of the No Sleep Festival featured the most modern production on the level of leading electronic indoor festivals.
Conference, Workshops, Afterparties
The No Sleep Festival also features daily parties, afterparties and workshops, as well as a music conference with panel discussions on some of the most current issues concerning the local and global electronic scene.

“The past years have seen Exit’s No Sleep stage become a festival in itself.”
Besides the stage at EXIT and its own festival, No Sleep has a seaside edition within the Sea Dance Festival. Aside from the music events, there is also the premium energy drink No Sleep Awakened by Guarana, inspired by urban life and the pulsating rhythm of the night, with a refreshing taste in an attractive can sporting the recognizable visual identity of the platform.
