AUSTRIAN ARTIST AT C/O POP 2019
Austrian acts have been an integral part of c/o Pop for many years. Previous editions of the festival featured the likes of Voodoo Jürgens, Leyya, Dives, Wandl and Granada. This year, Mavi Phoenix and Ankathie Koi will take the stage in Cologne Ehrenfeld.
Saturday, May 4 – Bürgerzentrum Ehrenfeld
Mavi Phoenix hardly needs an introduction by now. The genre-bending, globetrotting artist hailing from Linz already has an impressive track record, with support by the likes of Fader and Nylon as well as shows throughout Europe and the US, including festivals like Reeperbahn Festival, The Great Escape or SXSW. Listen to her current EP “Young Prophet II” and discover her unique mix of rap, r’n’b and contemporary pop. Mavi Phoniex is also part of the conference program at c/o Pop on Friday, talking about the intricate love of rap & politics.
Sunday, May 5 – Bumann & Sohn
Yet another stunning female talent is Ankathie Koi. Although born in Bavaria she has been making waves in the Austrian music scene for quite some time now. Her almost gender-fluid stage persona drags the audience out of their comfortzone while she performs her 80s inspired dance-pop with a lot of humor and grand gestures.
