Missy Elliot whipped up a huge crowd on the third day of Exit. Röyksopp, who did an excellent job of blending electronic music with live instruments and vocals, opened the concert with Eple, Remind Me, and a single from their most recent album "The Girl and the Robot."
Culture Shock, a band from Seattle played on Fusion Stage. The band enjoys a small following in Serbia by merit of its combination of traditional Balkan music and hard guitar rock music. Stuttgart Online, a young band from Belgrade, their somewhat older colleagues Veliki Prezir, and the legendary KUD Idioti punk rock band from Pula took the same stage during the evening. Then at midnight, the infamous Scottish punk rock band, The Exploited, filled up the area in front of Explosive Stage to capacity. The band played its uncompromising punk rock music for over an hour, which in combination with stunning pyrotechnic effects blew the audience away.
On Exit's final evening, July 11, after Faith No More's memorable performance, The Chemical Brothers took the stage with "Galvanize."
