Headliners for the Cologne festival include Hercules & Love Affair and Ricardo Villalobos.
The fifth edition of C/O Pop will be held from August 13th to the 17th. As Lee Smith wrote in last year's write-up of the event, "Less a music festival per se (in the sense of Sonar, Benicassim etc), the event links up Cologne’s numerous venues, labels, artists and players for a sprawling five day party, punctuated by daily bouts of earnest meets and greets at the central ‘business’ conference."
Yes, there will be business. But, mostly, there will be dancing. The latter will be helped along by DJ's like Gabriel Ananda, Patrice Scott, Marcus Worgull and many more, including many of the Kompakt crew, who will be participating in the ritual Total party celebrating the release of their newest edition in the series, Total 9. Expect Supermayer (live), Aril Brikha, Ewan Pearson and others to break it down on the terrace of the Expo XXL.
