BELGRADE, Serbia, July 13 (UPI) -- About 150,000 fans listened to some 500 performers during four days of the 10th Exit music festival that ended early Monday in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Britain's Prodigy was the last to perform on the Exit's main stage in the 17th century Petrovaradin Fortress overlooking the Danube River, 45 miles north of Belgrade, Vojvodina's RTV reported.

Among the performers were Madness, Kraftwerk, Lily Allen and DJ Moby.

The Exit music festival began in 2000, a symbol for young enthusiasts seeking an exit from the authoritarian regime of the late Serb President Slobodan Milosevic.

Ten years later, music experts say, the Novi Sad Exit festival is the biggest event of its kind in southeastern Europe.
