Motel Mozaique 2017 in Photos

Motel Mozaique, a music and art festival in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, celebrated its 17th year this year. Featuring musical acts from the US, UK, and across Europe, Motel Mozaique hosted concerts across venues around the city over April 7th and 8th. Standout performers included retro-rockers the Lemon Twigs, who treated audiences to an acoustic set in the day and a full live set at night, and Klangstof, a Dutch/Norwegian band that used haunting electronic lines layered over indie-rock chords and drum fill to create their own fusion of electronic, pop, and rock.
