Lombok Festival 2017
Satellite Events (2017)
In Utrecht’s suburb Lombok, you're immediately welcomed by Turkish and Moroccan grocery stores, bakeries, the smell of kebab, and huge piles of colorful fruits sold in the streets. The impressive neon-lit mosque, a traditional Dutch mill and a mysteriously beautiful church mark the skyline.
This year, we'll host a new satellite event highlighting this vibrantly diverse neighborhood. Please meet Lombok Festival: 8 locations, a food market and a musical line-up consisting of Le Guess Who?-curated acts together with local musical heroes & talents. What about Rwandan brochettes, and Moroccan stews at the food market? Enjoy the virtuoso bağlama playing of Barış Güney, and the spiritual Sufi poetry & music from Walid Ben Selim with lute player Jaber Fayad.
