A day with TINCON
TINCON for digital youth culture is finally coming live to Cologne! After being represented with digital contributions at c/o pop xoxo for the past two years, TINCON will be there live with its own stage for the first time this year. On Friday, April 22, the youth conference will take over the Herbrand’s big hall for one day as part of the c/o pop convention. In talks, Q&As and panels, young and well-known speakers will present current trends of Gen Z from pop culture and digital. And best of all: students can attend TINCON completely free of charge.

Real Talk with XATAR auf der c/o pop Convention 2022
Rapper, producer, label operator, book author, restaurateur, entrepreneur: XATAR is one of the most enigmatic personalities in the German rap business. Born in Iran in 1981 as the son of Kurdish freedom fighters, he has lived in Bonn since 1985, where he began his music career in the late 1990s. He produced his album “No. 415” in 2012 from prison with the help of a smuggled-in cell phone and a dictation machine. His life story is currently being filmed by Fatih Akin under the title “Rheingold.” His keynote will certainly be about that as well as about the Goldmann Tower at Barbarossaplatz - a creative factory and incubator for innovative entertainment products.

With its various outdoor and indoor spaces, it’s the perfect place for our diverse offerings. Herbrand’s is centrally located in Cologne-Ehrenfeld - and thus very close to many locations of the c/o pop festival.
