Motel Mozaïque festival, 4 April 2014 – 5 April 2014

The (inter)nationally respected Motel Mozaïque festival is known for its alternative music, intrusive theatre and visual arts that are a feast for your imagination. At various indoor venues in Rotterdam distinctive programmes are presented.

Motel Mozaïque showcases new and upcoming movements in different art disciplines, and the crossovers between. Visitors are given the opportunity to stay the night in a playful, exciting way. Locations are turned into real motels, where guests can sleep and an artist collective will take care of breakfast and other special items.

This year, the festival is going to take the form of a ‘weekender’ with more sleeping accommodations and an extended daytime program, including exciting guided tours and concerts in the afternoon at the Rotterdamse Schouwburg.  For more information check out the April Events in Rotterdam Motel Mozaique website www.motelmozaique.nl

With the fastest marathon course in the world and an unequalled atmosphere, this event, the biggest one-day sporting event in The Netherlands, may rightfully claim to be the running experience of the year.

Last year more than 22,000 participants stood at the starting line, including some of the world’s top athletes. Several bands, DJ’s, acts and orchestras will perform alongside the course of the ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam to support the runners and the spectators with their music. The musicians bring together the heartbeat of the thousands of runners with the urban beat of the city.

Besides its super-fast course, Rotterdam is renowned for its unique ambiance and enthusiastic spectators. They give every participant a hero’s reception at the finish on the Coolsingel, making the finish one of the best experiences for the runners. Last year there were more than 900,000 spectators along the course. www.marathonrotterdam.nl
