Motel Mozaique 2005 in the press

NRC Handelsblad “Motel Mozaïque: festival spoils visitors”
“Motel Mozaïque, in its fifth year this year, is a Rotterdam showpiece. The enthusiastic organization has developed a concept that appears to be sustainable: entertain the festival guests as you would entertain your friends.”

“… Motel Mozaïque, a pleasant remnant of the year in which Rotterdam was European Capital of Culture (2001).”

“Motel Mozaïque developed into a meaningful festival, because the programmers showed every year that they have a keen eye for the latest trends and the best bands.”

Het Parool “Maddening choices on ‘Mosaic’”
“The many artistic extras always give Motel Mozaïque its own atmosphere …”

“Adventure or nostalgia: nothing is too crazy for Motel Mozaïque”

Rotterdams Dagblad “Motel Mozaïque catches fire immediately”
“The expectations surrounding ‘Motel Mozaïque’ are getting higher and broader every year. See the growth in (pre)publicity and public interest. Fortunately, the varied arts festival itself remains in full swing, as was evident again and again on the opening evening. Before everyone was properly inside, there were quite a few surprises.”

The Havenloods
“In five years, Motel Mozaïque has grown into one of the most exciting festivals in the Netherlands.”

“The fact that it was sometimes too busy here and there and that there were significant traffic jams at various venues, especially in Nighttown, did not spoil the fun. The program was just way too good for that this time.”

“The quality mark of the organisation is enough for the visitor to go and see (often completely) unknown artists.”


The program on Bazar Curieux 2005 featured Jose Gonzalez, The Go! Team, Martha Wainwright, Arsenal, Hanne Hukkelberg, Lederhosen Lucil, Envelopes, Syd Matter, Freeform Five and more.
