STA Travel and Busabout today announced a new partnership that will offer Australians and New Zealanders exclusive travel and tour options to one of Europe’s most celebrated music festivals – EXIT in Serbia.

Exit Festival was founded in 2000 as a student movement fighting for democracy and freedom and protesting against the Milosevic regime. Today, the EXIT festival attracts over 200,000 people from 60 countries around the world and was voted as the ‘Best Major Festival’ for 2013 by the European Festival Awards.unnamed (1)
