Cycle or walk through Utrecht suburb Lombok's main street, and 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. Lombok is lively and bustling. The impressive neon-lit mosque, a traditional Dutch mill and a mysteriously beautiful church mark the skyline.
This year, we'll host the second edition of Lombok Festival in this vibrantly diverse neighborhood, with 8 locations, a food market and a musical line-up consisting of Le Guess Who?-curated acts together with many local musical heroes & talents. Lombok Festival takes place on Friday 9 November, organized with people and key figures living and working in Lombok.
