The annual arts festival Motel Mozaïque will descend on Rotterdam on 10 and 11 April, and EM has passes to give away.

The festival goes back some 15 years and is known to be an adventurous and innovative showcase of pop music and visual and performing arts. In the past, it has often featured unknown bands who later broke through to the wider public. This year, among the artists you can enjoy will be the members of Alamo Race Track, who are launching their new CD with a performance at Motel Mozaïque.

There will be beautiful, bittersweet songs by 19-year-old singer Denai Moore from London, who has given her soulful album a James Blake edge. And there will be Dutch talent which has already been awarded an Edison: Mister and Mississippi, who captured the hearts of indie and folk lovers in the segment between Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Sigur Rós.

Tattoo tour

But Motel Mozaïque is about more than just music: there are also fun tours in the centre of Rotterdam. For example, the Tattoo Tour visits the street art of Rotterdam and Schouwburgplein will be transformed into Work-out Plaza Mozaïque, where you can start your festival day with an invigorating workout. Clearly, Motel Mozaïque is the place to be, and with a bit of luck it’ll be free too!
