While nearly everyone is at Burning Man in the USA these days, there is a very special event going on in Cologne this weekend. The legendary label Kompakt celebrates its 25th anniversary in their hometown at the ‘Stadtgarten’ with many live sets and DJ sets of artists like Michael Mayer. Just a few days ago the label released their new ‘Total 18’ compilation with tracks from Christian Nielsen, Jürgen Paape, Geiger, Aaron Ahrends and Thomas/Meyer.
Tip: tunes&wings recommends loading up your energy at Daikan before. Daikan Izakaya Restaurant serves one of the best ramen soups on this planet.
