After four sold-out editions of DGTL x Kompakt, the label from Cologne returns for what is bound to be another memorable event. Michael Mayer will play b2b with good friend Patrice Bäumel. More musical ingenuity comes from Weval [live], Pachanga Boys, Danny Daze, Locked Groove and Tobias Thomas. The two latter are up for opening duties, and the whole gang will be joined by two special guests, Apparat and Roman Flügel.
