Main Stage / Thursday, July 11
A welcome return for the reincarnated Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion, who last performed on the EXIT Main Stage in 2007. During his performance he defiantly declared: “This ain’t the last time you’re gonna see this face.” And he was right. We’re glad he has stayed true to his word, as what better artist to join in the R:Evolution of this year’s EXIT Festival than this groundbreaking and shaking artist who has continued to re invent himself and stay at the top of his game, with over 30 million albums sold worldwide.
This year, at the same time as EXIT, Snoop Dogg goes through R:Evolution from which his new character is born. The old fascination with Jamaica, and the additional name Snoop Lion both serve as messengers for his new release "Reincarnated" and a documentary film that follows his journey on the Caribbean island, which was released recently. On this occasion, Snoop said: "What it is is trying to bring some love and awareness to some great music that was created, that was made to grow and made to have a life, to have the right attention put on it, so hopefully it'll do what it's supposed to do."
