GERMAN C / O POP FESTIVAL WILL BE AMONG THE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVALS TO BE PRESENTED AT BIME
BIME will provide opportunity to some international festivals for taking advantage of this professional meeting to explain their philosophy, characteristics, history and experiences. The first to have confirmed its presence is German Festival c / o pop, which celebrates this year its tenth edition from 19 to 23 June in Cologne.
The festival takes place in the centre of the city, in the streets, parks, pubs, halls, pavilions, auditoriums, industrial warehouses and in spaces not usually used to host pop events, like theater Millowitsch or the Philharmonic Hall. On the whole, they dispose of 35 different places for doing concerts and this year’s line-up includes 150 international artists already scheduled. c/ o pop is a fascinating festival which is considered as one of the best showcases for emerging artists across Europe. Bands such as Arcade Fire, Maximo Park and The Whitest Boy Alive acted in Cologne before the explosion of their success.
Furthermore, at the same time as the festival (and also in Cologne) takes place C’n'B (Creativity & Business Convention), a convention which aims to stimulate the economy of cultural and entertainment industry. Talks, lectures and professional meetings which this 2013 will search for new ways to make the different creative trends profitable and do business with them.
In November both c / o pop Festival and its extension, C’n'B will be presented at BIME.
