The c/o pop electronic music festival has focused on new approaches and trends in the European independent pop cultural scene since 2004. In 2008 c/o pop featured the project European Trip which aimed to intensify the festival's European networking activities at a thematic level. Festivals from all around Europe, especially Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, had been invited to Cologne to present a cross-section of their programmes. In addition to these, festival makers and PR people in the fields of music, design and art could discuss production conditions and further develop existing cooperative projects.
