“So we kick off our summer festival season of 2014 with one of Rotterdam’s most exciting and eclectic music festivals, Motel Mozaïque! We entered through the beautiful new Central Station of Rotterdam towards the festival ground where performance meets art and music. Here’s a glimpse of what we got up to at Motel Mozaïque and to give you an idea of what we expect for the upcoming season, lot’s of great music and plenty of sunshine!”

3voor12 recorded unique sessions with George Ezra, Temples, Eagulls en Matthew & The Atlas, Moss, Quilt, Erlend Oye and Thumpers at nhow hotel Rotterdam and Kathedraal (the temporary venue at Schouwburgplein). Watch here.

“One thing which makes Motel Mozaique so amazing is the extreme diversity of performances and activities going on. The main hub of the festival is located on the Schouwburgplein, which was totally transformed to a hipster paradise home to tents, stages and various interesting activities. [..] Motel Mozaique Festival is a one of a kind festival. Yes, there are comparisons with Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival in its multi-venue set-up, but Motel Mozaique goes that one step further in bringing the best music, art and dance of today to the stages of Rotterdam, a city where bands seldom play.[..] Overall, Motel Mozaique is a festival which you ought to check out if you’re into discovering the best of the best, and if you’re up for an all-round great festival experience!” – All Things Loud

“Whether you’re seeking out a weekend-wide blast of exciting new music and excellent live performances, some passionate art, experimental theatre, guided tours or just looking to explore the secretly welcoming heart of Rotterdam and its many hidden treasures – preferably all of the above – Motel Mozaïque is an inspiring urban experience.” – Subbacultcha!
