EXIT Festival

The Prodigy made a historic but emotional return to the EXIT Festival in front of 44, 0000 fans on Thursday, July 6th. The legendary UK rave innovators played an epic set on the Main Stage for the first time since the sad loss of front man Keith Flint. 

The return of The Prodigy to their spiritual home was symbolically initiated with the song ‘Breathe’ which they premiered live in Belgrade back in 1995, creating a special connection with the local audience. Tens of thousands of fans gathered in front of the Gorki List Main Stage and during their much anticipated show at the famous fortress, the band used a mesmeric and magical hologram of Keith to bring him on stage with them and it got wild reactions from the crowd. It was a fitting tribute to the one and only Keith who is well known to the Exit faithful. The band worked through plenty of their classic material as well as newer tunes, all with the sort of unrivalled energy they are known for around the world.
