c/o pop in Cologne

This annual music festival and sector meeting has been running annually since 2004. It features numerous concerts by newcomers and established artists, networking options and panel discussions.

On famous stages or at cool venues, sounds and vibrations reverberate throughout the city when the world of music and its fans gather together during c/o pop — at the c/o pop Convention and diverse gigs as well as c/o Ehrenfeld, the weekend event in a well-known Cologne neighbourhood. Because it’s a “festival of discovery”, c/o pop offers lots of potential for extraordinary musical experiences. Come in — and flip out!
