MOMI-fest beta 1.0!

07/08/2007    Curating, DJ, Esc.rec., Havenkwartier

For some time now I’ve been working together with Peter Boorsma on the realization of MOMI-fest beta 1.0, a (free!) festival loosely based on MOMI, with a touch of Esc.rec.

MOMI-fest beta 1.0 is part of the official opening of Havenkwartier Deventer. Thanks to the enthusiasm of all the bands and participants involved, the programme has become quite extensive, with a crammed line-up as the inevitable consequence. Therefore the programme starts at three in the afternoon and continues non-stop till midnight.

MOMI-fest beta 1.0 mainly features a wide variety of MOMI and Esc.rec. related music, but also presents design, photography and the interactive nature of a weblog in the shape of exhibitions, a lecture and interactive media.

Last year MOMI was winner of a Dutch Bloggie in the category Best Music Blog. MOMI is written by a broad variety of musicians, designers, (pop)photographers, bookers, music reviewers. In general MOMI writes about obscurities, strange phenomena and excesses within the ‘music industry’ combined with an emphasis on Dutch music.

Esc.rec. is a record label and platform for new, unknown and experimental music. Besides releasing interesting music esc.rec. organizes events to stimulate collaborations between artists, labels, organizations, venues and distributors. Esc.rec. is also a participant in Het Havenkwartier.

Line-up of MOMI-fest beta 1.0: LPG (music), Bonne Aparte (music), De Bronstgieters (music), Boutros Bubba (music), Parkside (music), Zèbra (music), Thoughts Create The World (music), Cette Truc (dj), George Henze (expo), Vormversterker (expo), Martien ter Veen (expo), Niet Voor Niets (expo), Marco Raaphorst (lecture), Jan Kleefstra (poetry).
