c/o Ehrenfeld 2022!
– The festival in the festival

Thanks to all guests, artists, speakers, delegates and sponsors and partners! Thank you all for being there and turning half of Ehrenfeld into a banging street party. Thank you for the sold-out Philharmonie for Bilderbuch, for the well-attended panels at the convention, the overcrowded venues at several shows and events, thank you for making sure that Venloer Straße was finally full of good-humored people instead of bad-humored drivers. We are still very happy and are already looking forward to next year. Then we will celebrate our 20th anniversary - be sure to keep April 26-30, 2023 free. We have already prepared some super specials that you can really look forward to.

c/o Ehrenfeld

On the festival Saturday and Sunday, the completely free c/o Ehrenfeld was a festival within a festival - with countless very colorful program items: In addition to acts such as the extraordinary show by Priya Ragu, who combines R&B sounds with South Indian elements, the men's choir of the Grüngürtelrosen with its 60-strong cast attracted quite a few spectators*. In addition to the concerts, one could enjoy culinary delights at numerous booths and then make a decision: Nail art, twerking workshop, screen printing course, breakdance show, skatejam roller disco or rather a new talent workshop on green touring, GEMA or newcomer booking?

Since all Corona regulations are currently quite confusing and not uniform everywhere, we will keep you up to date on the pandemic at this point. Currently, we recommend all visitors to take a test at home or at the many test stations and to wear a mask where it is not possible to keep your distance. If you have symptoms, please stay at home. Masks are still mandatory in the Philharmonie Cologne!

New Talent

New Talent


You want to get deeper and more professional into the music business, but don’t know how to do it best? Are you interested in topics such as funding opportunities for artists, professional marketing, alternative sources of income and copyright?

On April 23 and 24, you can explore all of these questions at the NEW TALENT workshops, which will take place for the first time this year at c/o Ehrenfeld. Here, experienced professionals from the music sector will pass on their know-how and skills in a wide variety of areas. Participation is free, but you have to register beforehand.

Auf die Bretter, fertig, los!

Auf die Bretter, fertig, los!


Another dream team: Music & Skating. This year, speaker manufacturer Soundboks is the official sponsor of c/o pop and what could be more natural than a skate contest? Exactly: nothing! On Saturday Soundboks is hosting a contest. Meeting point is the Open Deck Cologne. Here you can not only listen to the scene-typical clacking of skateboards, but of course also to the perfectly tuned sounds from the iconic speakers.

Kölsch & Tischtennisschläger

Kölsch & Tischtennisschläger


Since the pandemic, at the latest, people everywhere have been swinging the table tennis bat again and treating themselves to a beer or two. Our official festival and convention partner Mühlen Kölsch has turned this dream team into a program item and is organizing the official Mühlen Cup table tennis tournament on the Sunday of the festival. Come around!

c/o queer


Since we want to focus more on the important topic of queerness in the future, we have created a completely new module: c/o queer. This year, for the first time, the network Anders und Gleich will present artists like Finna, KARMA SHE, a drag queen performance and a podcast live special about sex and dating. Anders und Gleich is docked to the LAG Lesben and does excellent information and anti-discrimination work on sexual and gender diversity in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Our c/o Ehrenfeld-Market


Good news for all who love to browse and stroll: Our popular market will be even bigger than usual! Along Venloer Straße you can stroll from booth to booth on the weekend of c/o Ehrenfeld and get carried away by the colorful hustle and bustle between your concert and workshop highlights. As usual, DIY stuff in the form of jewelry, fashion and accessories will be on sale at the various booths - and of course there will also be delicacies for the stomach, soul and liver. You would like to participate in the market with your own stand? We still have a few places available.

Thoughts of our last c/o Ehrenfeld feel like something from another time.

And as always, the entire c/o Ehrenfeld will cost you not a single cent. Crazy? Crazy! And that’s a promise!
