This weekend (8 & 9 April), the centre of Rotterdam will be transformed into a wonderful musical and cultural hub as the annual Motel Mozaique festival takes over the harbour city for another year. With an exciting line-up filled with variety ranging from post-punk through to hip hop, Motel Mozaique once again has a lot to offer. Below we’ve lined up our Top 10 performances which you can’t miss out on. And our reason for not missing out on them? Just read our one-liner description and listen to the one song we’ve chosen to find out why.

10 Blossoms
Blossoms are your new favourite festival headliners of the future.

Julio Bashmore
Need some time to get down with the groove? Then Julio Bashmore is your man.

Protomartyr
Gruesomely grim post-punk from the heart of industrial hub Detroit.

MY BABY
Shamanic rituals and non-stop funk-laden rhythms courtesy of Holland’s hottest new export.

Damien Jurado
If you’re in need of an anthemic sing-a-long then get yourself down to the Schouwburg on Saturday.

jennylee
Warpaint bassist jennylee has gone solo, with her exciting new output perfectly suited to small, intimate spaces.

Meatbodies
Garage rock from the heart of California which has been blessed by Ty Segall? Don’t mind if we do.

Vant
England’s newest rock sensation Vant are ready to destroy everything in their tracks.

The Go! Team
You can’t really describe Brighton’s The Go! Team. However, eclectic 1970s-tinged disco soundtrack is a pretty close call.

Formation
A fully fledged dance rock party.
