In 2019 the Motel Mozaïque Festival will take place on Thursday 18, Friday 19 and Saturday 20 April, in different venues in the amazing center of Rotterdam. The 19th edition of the festival will bring you exciting (new) artists in performance and art, but most of all a shitload of music!

Music. Performance.
Art. Tours.
Sleep-in. Street.

Three days, all dedicated to new encounters. Some more awkward than others.

We’ll take you on a road to self-discovery. Your favorite music, art, interesting performances and street art. We dare you to get to know yourself, by doing things you wouldn’t normally do. Discover the beauty of opposites, the unknown.


Motel Mozaïque’s line-up is bursting with both new talent, and some more renowned names. We constantly aim for fruitful collaborations between music and performance. A Rotterdam based orchestra with a German techno DJ, a South-American percussionist with a Scandinavian singer-songwriter. Clashes that lead to a long-term memory and partnership.

No limits, Rotterdam is our playground

We want you to get to know our city. See through the façade: Rotterdam might seem tough to love, but once you discovered the way to her heart, you’ll never want to leave. Our venues are scattered around town with a line-up that is all about discovering new places. To get to know Rotterdam a little better, we’ve organized thirty different guided tours that lead you through the city. You’ll sleep in the futuristic and awardwinning CityHub Hotel, comfy hostels or in the MOMO Art Motel. (more about this later)


Guided Tours: April 19th and 20th
Free, sign up before or during the festival.

Know what to expect, just because you don’t know what to expect.

We promise you that it’s a good thing. Our visitors always compliment us on making the most various choices in our line-up. A striking amount of people buy a ticket for MOMO when the line-up is not even announced yet, trusting on our vision they’ve known for the last eighteen. Do you want some more reassurance, that’s fine by us.

Panda Bear, Melanie De Biasio, Grandbrothers & Ensemble, Black Midi, Prairie WWWW, Altin Gün, Anna St. Louis, Apparat Live, Bendik Giske, Cherry Glazerr, Cocaine Piss, Colin Self, Drahla, FELBM, Fontaines D.C., Helado Negro, Kokoroko, Lubomyr Melnyk, Nilüfer Yanya, Outlet Drift, Pom Poko, Rimon, The Dandelion and Tourist will be attending MOMO 2019. Will you join them and us for MOMO19?

You, expecting the unexpected. Open to new experiences. You, partying your brains out with a psychedelic post-funk band from South-Somalia. Carelessly singing along with your favorite tunes in Rotown. You, tearing up while listening to a neo-classical pianist. And you weren’t even a fan of piano music, right?

Let’s meet up. We probably don’t see eye to eye on everything. We love it.
