FOMO began in December 2019 as a Thursday night event that combines dance music with local culture and art. Founders Mats, Luuk, Merlijn, Sjoerd, and Tom realized that, since the end of the Chips parties, Rotterdam electronic music enthusiasts had nowhere to go on Thursdays.
Unfortunately, their first event at the Perron club had to be postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic. However, the FOMO crew has kept itself busy with livestreams such as the fundraiser for the Voedselbank Rotterdam and sit-down events with both established DJs such as Moody Mehran and Jeff Solo, and upcoming local talent.
Last week we spoke to them about their concept, how they create appealing programs, their Soundsystem, and their view on the city’s post-pandemic nightlife.
