#GOA19 at the #copopcon19, Rendez-Vous with Dirk von Lowtzow and „25 km/h“

Music and journalistic quality on the Internet: In many cases, this goes hand in hand. Therefore, we are very pleased that the nominations for this year's Grimme Online Award will be announced at the c/o pop Convention. We are very curious to see who will be among the nominees - by the way, you can still submit your proposals until March 1. We're also looking forward to more prominent speakers: Dirk von Lowtzow (Tocotronic), Milena Fessmann and Markus Goller ("25 km/h") as well as Susanne Franz (SEAT). By the way, the regular ticket sale has started: You can also buy single day passes and reduced student tickets now - get your tickets here.


FROM TOCOTRONIC TO „STYX“: RENDEZ-VOUS WITH DIRK VON LOWTZOW

On May 3rd, Dirk von Lowtzow and "Germany's most intelligent band" (ARD) Tocotronic will top c/o pop Festival's Friday night at the Kölner Philharmonie. But beforehand, he will come to c/o pop Convention for a very special artist talk - since he is not only a musician but also a composer of theatre and film music. Most recently he wrote the music for Wolfgang Fischer's moving film "Styx", which premiered at the Berlinale in 2018. As part ofEXCHANGE & CONNECT's film focus, Dirk von Lowtzow will provide information about this, but certainly also about Tocotronic or about his book "Aus dem Dachsbau", which will be published on February 14th.


DRIVEN BY MUSIC: KEYNOTE BY SUSANNE FRANZ (SEAT)

We have also confirmed the first speaker for the BRANDS & MUSIC programming section on Thursday, May 2, 2019: We are looking forward to Susanne Franz, SEAT's global marketing director. The Spanish car brand is increasingly focusing on digital marketing strategies and social media, and of course, music is playing a major role in this. In her keynote, she will reveal which ones.

BRANDS & MUSIC is organized by the agency Lautstark in cooperation with c/o pop Convention 2019.


THE SOUND OF „25 KM/H“: RENDEZ-VOUS WITH MILENA FESSMANN & MARKUS GOLLER

Thanks to almost 1 million viewers the road movie "25 km/h", starring Bjarne Mädel and Lars Eidinger, was an independent box office success last year. And as is so often the case, music is also playing a crucial role here, for example by The Cure, Bilderbuch and Yo La Tengo. Milena Fessmann, who is not only working as a DJ and presenter but who also runs the music consulting agency CINESONG, has been responsible for the music supervision. On Thursday, May 2, 2019, as part of our film focus at EXCHANGE & CONNECT, she will talk to director and producer Markus Goller about how to put the fitting music into a film like "25 km/h" - and what things need to be taken into account.
