This year - as in the past two years - Groove Attack will have a booth at c/o pop 2008 in Cologne. We will be pleased to meet you there.

c/o pop 2008 - festival & professional 13. - 17.08.2008

In celebration of its fifth birthday, c/o pop promises visitors another five days jam-packed with music and pop culture in varying formats, while accredited industry guests can look forward to a professional music and media forum comprising the homeliest trade fair in the world, affair c/o pop, and the practice-based, reality-rooted conference c/o pop.

In the knowledge that a winning team should never be changed, the structure of this year\'s c/o pop closely resembles the massively successful 2007 festival. The architectonically unique Rheintriadem building just metres away from the cathedral will once again provide c/o pop with a stylish home, functioning as the festival headquarters, trade fair and conference centre, and as the venue for various concerts and events.

2008 will be the second year of the \"Europareise\" project, an international summit meeting of European festival organizers sponsored by the Federal Cultural Foundation, and of the \"Asia-Pacific Platter\", an inter-cultural exchange programme hosted by the Goethe-Institut to promote cooperation between electronic musicians from Germany, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand - the results of which will be presented as part of c/o pop.

The concert programme once again revolves around the Gloria-Theater in the heart of Cologne, the scene of some extreme festivities last year.

But c/o pop also stands for innovation and discovery, which is why every year sees some new and unusual venues added to the list, as well as inventive and original programme formats. This year\'s \"Deutschlandreise\" club night, for example, is based on a whole new concept with a whole new name (\"Local Heroes\"), and 2008 will also see the festival\'s first film screenings, various exhibitions and some top secret special events.

Needless to say Cologne\'s flagship label Kompakt is once again in charge of the high point of the party programme, \"Total 9\", although the open air classic \"PollerWiesen\" on the Sunday of the festival is being presented by one of the best electronic dance DJs around, so it\'s likely to come a very close second.
