What is MOMO Festival Rotterdam?

As the original name (Motel Mozaique) implies, MOMO Festival is a mosaic of music, art and culture. The first edition was held in 2001 and in the two decades since, it has only gotten bigger and better. The MOMO Festival is held at different locations in Rotterdam's city centre; in theatres, cafés, concert halls, clubs and (former) churches. From daring art performances to unique guided city tours; MOMO is a unique festival that not only brings music to the city, but in a way, also brings the city closer to itself. Past editions of the festival featured up-and-coming superstars such as Luke Sital-Singh and George Ezra.
