With Serbiaâ€™s recent history including ethnic cleansing, genocide and war, British promoter Paxton Talbotâ€™s claims are neither overblown nor exaggerated, though heâ€™s wrong about at least one of the artists on this yearâ€™s bill.
â€œWhat makes this gig particularly interesting is the fact that we were bombing Belgrade and Novi Sad just three or four years ago,â€? says breakbeat pioneer Howie B.
â€œItâ€™s mad when you find out what the fuck weâ€™ve done to these places; or rather, what others have done to them.â€?
The â€˜weâ€™ or â€˜othersâ€™ Howieâ€™s referring to are NATO and the most visible sign of their handiwork in Novi Sad today is the still severed Sloboda (â€˜Freedomâ€™) Bridge, whose disconnected ends slope at 45Âº angles into the murky Danube river.

Seb Fontaine: Leaving Radio 1 Is Like Leaving A Girlfriend
Seb Fontaine chatted to Skrufff this week about his impending departure from Radio 1 and compared the experience to a mutual break up of a long-term romance.
âI must admit I am a little bit sad about it and thereâs certainly a lump in my throat, but weâve also parted on really good terms, thereâs no animosity or bitterness,â said Seb.
âIt isnât a case of âyouâve been sacked, fuck offâ, in fact, Iâm still going to be doing Ibiza for them as well as various other projects later on. Itâs sad but sad in a good way.â
