Motel Mozaïque 2008 in the press:

“At 4 p.m., more than a thousand people were already waiting for a special wristband for dEUS, which would only start playing in the evening. Organiser Harry Hamelink: “It was good to see how relaxed everyone was in that spontaneous, self-organized queue. From that moment on, things couldn’t go wrong.” 

“At the edition of Motel Mozaïque, which is completely sold out for the first time, you can space out to sluimperpop or hyperventilate to punk funk and everything in between.”

“Goldfrapp’s vocals, tender harps and softly buzzing strings evoke a pleasant tranquility where you can lose yourself in details. The concert will be one of the most impressive and subdued of Motel Mozaïque, the annual festival in Rotterdam where adventure and innovation in pop music are celebrated.”

“Things were much healthier during the day during the supportive program that seems to be gaining more and more importance at Motel Mozaïque. At various locations such as the TENT. arts center, Lantaren/Venster, the NAI and the CBK, quite a few people came to a mix of music, theater, film and visual arts on Saturday, together an offering that moved smoothly between seriousness and fun. From discussions about the inhospitable attitude of Dutch hospitals towards sick illegal immigrants to a free and corny consultation with the sisters of BLISS Aid.”

“The afternoon program is traditionally provided by 3voor12. Various acts play short sessions of approximately twenty minutes in the Tent cultural center, as a foretaste of the real show later in the day. This is not only a nice way to spend time, but also gives you the opportunity to watch bands that would otherwise be missed. As at every festival, the luxury problem at Motel Mozaïque is that you can never see everything you want.”
