How to Get to Novi Sad
Novi Sad does not have its own airport. The closest airport is the Nikola Tesla Airport in Serbia’s capital Belgrade, which is roughly 80 kilometers southeast. You can also fly through airports in Budapest, Timisoara, Romania, and Dubrovnik. These flights may be cheaper, but will inevitably increase your travel time to the venue. The festival has provided a useful list of flight options to and from these airports, with suggested airlines to book through.
You can take the E-75 highway from either Belgrade or Budapest to Novi Sad, which is located only 5 kilometres from the highway. Note that highway toll fares apply.
Exit organizes shuttle services from nine surrounding airports to Novi Sad. Prices start at €10. Travel time from Belgrade is 1.5 hours, and 5 hours from Budapest. Book your shuttle ticket early to guarantee your seat! Private transfers can also be booked, which will pick you up from a location of your choice. This is a good option for large groups.
Daily trains run to Novi Sad from both Belgrade and Budapest. Travel time between Belgrade and Novi Sad is 1.5 hours, and 6.5 hours from Budapest.
Buses run every 15 minutes during peak hours between Belgrade and Novi Sad, with nearly 100 trips per day.
Getting around town
If you stay outside of the festival’s fortress walls, you can get around town and to the festival on foot, taxi, or bus. Novi Sad has an excellent bus service, which starts running at 5 am, and taxis are typically widely available. Taxis are inexpensive by Western standards. Note that there have been reports of unaffiliated taxis using tampered meters. If you ride via taxi, travel with care.
