Kompakt Total 19
In August 1999 the very first KOMPAKT compilation was released under the title "Total 1". Since then, the annual, lovingly curated compilations of exclusive new tracks on vinyl as well as a best-of of the current label catalogue have defined the annual calendar like otherwise only carnival and Christmas.
Once always at the same time as Popkomm and later c/o pop festival, the late summer is traditionally the total season. And that also means It's party time. But the Stadtgarten with all 3 floors has proved to be the ideal location again, at the latest since last year's roaring 25th anniversary celebrations. With a colourful mix of label legends, fresh newcomers and artists who will perform for the very first time in Cologne and as part of Kompakt, a wonderful line up has once again been achieved.
