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.
