Je kunt ze op één hand tellen, Nederlandse bands die evenveel hits als haringen in een ton hebben. De Zeeuwse popband Bløf kun je daar ongetwijfeld onder scharen. We noemen voor het gemak Liefs Uit Londen, Ze Is Er Niet, Hier, Dansen Aan Zee, Harder Dan Ik Hebben Kan en (natuurlijk) Aan De Kust. Dat is slechts een kleine bloemlezing van songs die vanavond in Annabel uit volle borst meegebruld worden.


Memphis Maniacs

Maximum Mashup

Memphis Maniacs zijn al jaren niet meer weg te denken van de bühnes van de Nederlandse festivals, clubs en evenementen. Als onbetwiste Masters of the Mash-Up timmeren ze ruim een decennium aan de weg. Die weg is er één van inventieve muzikale combinaties & strakke shows en leidt altijd weer naar een extatische party. Het gereedschap bestaat uit hun instrumenten en maniakaal muzikale breinen.



Extra show

De ambachtelijke teksten, de ontbrandende bezieling in de stem van Jakobsen en ja, ook die Zeeuwse roots blijven een belangrijk fundament voor de muziek van Bløf. De band blijft zich ontwikkelen, maar is kwalitatief gezien zo onveranderlijk gebleven als een strandpaal in de wind.



Minute Bodies (cine-concert)

The legendary tindersticks are coming to Rotterdam to give an exclusive tribute concert during the Opening night for the Motel Mozaique Festival 2017. In 2017 there will be a small selection of special live cine-events: Minute Bodies will feature as one of two sets for the evening… the other set being a special collection of Tindersticks songs and music.


Alex Vargas

& Kiah Victoria

Alex Vargas is a singer, guitarist and songwriter born in Gentofte, Denmark to an English mother and Uruguayan father. Alex relocated to London at the age of 17 to pursue his musical career. UK media have compared Alex to a younger Steve Winwood and Robert Palmer due to his vocals having similar deep and bluesy qualities. They described the band’s sound as “blue-eyed” soul rock.



& The Mysterons

The new album by Tinariwen could well have been called Exile on Main Street. But other people have already thought of that. It also could have been called A la recherché du pays perdu (‘Remembrance of a lost country’). Except that would have been a tad Proustian for musicians who grew up pretty much between a rock and a sand dune, in the midst of their goat herds and camel caravans.


Thee Oh Sees

Supports: zZz, Harry Merry, JC Thomaz & The Missing Slippers, Korfbal, Charlie & The Lesbians

Thee Oh Sees are the latest incarnation of songwriter, singer, guitarist (and Castle Face fearless leader) John Dwyer’s ever-evolving pop-folk psychedelic group. Dwyer, who hails from Providence, RI, has been active on the San Francisco indie scene since the late ’90s, working with dozens of bands.


Orchestra Baobab

Tribute to Ndiouga Dieng

West Africa’s most iconic dance-band are back. A decade on from their last album and almost half a century since their formation, Senegal’s Orchestra Baobab return with a timeless set of classic, swaying tunes fusing Afro-Cuban rhythms and African tradition in the group’s trademark style.


Elza Soares

The Woman at the End of the World

After eight decades of triumph and tragedy, Brazilian protest singer Elza Soares is lauded as grande dame of samba and a powerful voice against repression and injustice relating to gender, race, sexual orientation and class. For her arresting 34th album The Woman at the End of the Qorld, Soares left her hometown of Rio de Janeiro to collaborate with key players from São Paulo’s samba sujo (‘dirty samba)’ scene.


Peter Hook & The Light

performing the albums "Substance" by Joy Division & New Order

In May 2010, Peter Hook, legendary bassist of both Joy Division and later New Order, decided to honour the outstanding work of his first band and the undoubted genius of the late Ian Curtis by giving people the opportunity to hear both of Joy Division’s masterpiece albums, ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and ‘Closer’, live and in their entireties. Backed by his new band The Light, Hooky first played ‘Unknown Pleasures’ at the Factory club in Manchester in order to celebrate the life of Ian.
