For four days at the beginning of July the grounds of Petrovaradin Fortress are overrun by EXIT Festival revellers (www.exitfest.org). Established as one of the premier music events in Europe, EXIT now attracts some of the very biggest names in pop, techno and hip-hop (the 2011 line-up included Arcade Fire, Pulp and Portishead). Buy tickets and camping passes via the website. You can rent rooms in Novi Sad for the duration: check www.exittrip.org, which helps with booking accommodation and transport.
