BE HUMAN was held in collaboration with the Municipality of Budva and Dukley Gardens, and supported by the Government of the Republic of Serbia, the Government of Montenegro, Budva Tourism organization and Hipotekarna Bank. Taking place in the luxurious Dukley Gardens complex, Jamiroqui and Example performed a special DJ set which helped raise over 140.000 Euros and 80,000 Euros in goods for flood relief efforts.

Dusan Kovacevic, founder and director of the Exit Festival, spoke at the charity gathering: "I'm pleased to see the EXIT Adventure end with a charity event, the goal of which is to help those who were affected by the catastrophic floods that hit the region a month and a half ago.
