Motel Mozaïque 2013 in the press:

“Not necessarily smaller in quantity, but a line-up that covers more than fifty years of music history, from the new rock ‘n’ roll heroes The Strypes via the neo-soul of Laura Mvula and Jose James to the exciting beat and electronics wizards of this moment in the persons of producers S O H N and Lapalux.” – Kicking the habit

“The real festival tigers could report to the Doelen, where they were tucked into bunk beds in the foyer by angelic supervisors.  In the full light of the big city and all the noise that comes with it, at a festival that does not stop at the door of the concert hall.” – NRC Handelsblad

“Dancing paradise in the Minimall: Throughout the weekend the most dancing took place in the Minimall. Performances by Palmbomen, S O H N, Sinkane and Lapalux provided a constant flow of energy.” – Vogue

“On the extensive, sandy grounds and against the backdrop of an old municipal building, the band (Orlando), assisted by brass instruments, plays a few beautiful songs. It makes the walk a successful combination of culture, history and technology.” – Indie style

“Tropicana has become a Rotterdam icon and many people have memories of it.” – Algemeen Dagblad

“At what other festival do you see a coke-powdered documentary in a moving bus cinema in one weekend, are washed awake by hospitable nuns, and the jazz of José James, the electro rock of Goose and the indie folk of Daughter blend effortlessly?” – DJBroadcast

“An edition where, above all, a program is presented that is more diverse than ever before. The big promises for this year have been spotted” – Kindamuzik

“After the debacle surrounding Nighttown/Watt, the closure of Waterfront, Heidegger, Exit and De Nieuwe Oogst, it was recently announced that De Unie will be the next to close its doors to live music. One of the few bright spots is multi-arts festival Motel Mosaic.” – EAR
