c/o pop Festival
Lending insight into current pop culture, focusing particularly on the influence the music emanating from in and around the Cologne area: offering a unique experience of the “Sound of Cologne”. Our line up is directly from Cologne and includes Coma (Kompakt), Roosevelt (Greco-Roman) and c/o pop festival director, Tobias Thomas. 44 founder Mister Sushi and IA founder and editor Antepop will be supporting.
Playing live, Coma combine techno and pop to create a truly unique experience. Playing on stage with laptop, guitar, synthesizer and microphone the duo have found a way to break the barriers between club culture and live concerts, techno and pop. With their likeably naive performances, their intuitions always leave people with a smile on their faces.

He’s been DJ’ing since the early 90’s and has played a key role in Kompakt’s steady rise through his involvement in projects with Dettinger, Superpitcher, Jörg Burger, Geiger, Michael Mayer, Ada and Reinhard Voigt. He is also festival director of c/o pop.
Roosevelt fuses elements of chill wave, Italo disco and pop in effortless fashion. Coming on strong like a fresh take on Caribou, Roosevelt will release his debut EP on Berlin-London label Greco-Roman.
