Yes, there’s more than one “greatest rock’n'roll weekend of the year” happening in July. I’m at the EXIT festival in the Petrovaradin fortress in Novi Sad. The sun in shining, they’re expecting 60,000 people (including a couple of hundred Irish folks) over the weekend and the vibes are already good.

There are 160 acts down to play on the 25 different stages between now and Sunday, including Audion, Booka Shade, Deep Dish, Francois K, Gogol Bordello, Gossip, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Laurent Garnier, Ministry, N.E.R.D., Paul Weller, The Presets, Primal Scream and, yes, the Sex Pistols.

If you’re going to that other greatest rock’n'roll weekend of the year on a racecourse in Co Kildare, have a great time and no doubt, we will hear from you on Monday.
