Here's how you could attend Microsoft's Xbox FanFest at Gamescom 2015

Microsoft has plans for 500 people who live in the Cologne, Germany to come and party at their first free Xbox FanFest at Gamescom 2015 on August 4 and 5. Microsoft previously held an Xbox FanFest event in June in Los Angeles for E3 2015.

Microsoft says:

"Fans can begin lining up for tickets at the Gloria Theater in Cologne, Germany, beginning at 2:00 p.m CEST on Tuesday, August 4 until all tickets are taken. The full address for the Gloria Theater is: Apostelnstrasse 11, Cologne, NW 50667, Germany. Please note that you'll need to be over 18 years of age and that you're limited to one ticket per person."

In addition to being able to play upcoming Xbox One games, getting free swag and the chance to chat with Xbox game developers and executives, FanFest attendees will be able to party at an event on the Rhein River on August 5 as well as a secret event on that same day.

Microsoft is also bringing back its Xbox Daily video show that it launched at E3 for Gamescom 2015:

"The 60 minute live show will be hosted by Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's Major Nelson, Graeme Boyd, Xbox Live's AceyBongos, and Julia Hardy, and will include guest stars and industry elites, including guests from top game studios that are creating amazing games for Xbox One and Windows 10. Xbox Daily: LIVE @ gamescom will bring the show home to our fans around the world on August 5th and 6th starting at 6:00 p.m. CEST (12:00 p.m. EDT) and can be streamed live on Xbox One, on (both on your desktop and on mobile), and on Xbox 360. Each show will also have interactive experiences created just for fans watching live on Xbox One."
