was jus wonderin if anyone knew anythin bout the love parade this yr. i know it was cancelled last yr but word is that the rave still continued on without the actual parade down the street!! i hear its cancelled again this yr but if the rave is likely to still go ahead then ill definitely wanna swing by there. jus dont wanna make plans to be there if nothins goin on!! so any help would be great.
you're right the loveparade 2005 has just been cancelled last week as they couldn't find any sponsors. It was the same last year, but there were still a few thousand people having a parade without trucks on a fairly big road in the city. Compared to the years before with more than a million people it's probably not worth for you coming here, though we have lots of other great things to check out in Berlin
I'm not into techno at all, but friends told me that the G-move in Hamburg is another good rave to go to.
If you want to visit a raveparade, why don't you come to Switzerland? It is now the biggest Parade in Europe (from what I've heard) It normally takes place Mid August! check www.streetparade.ch
Otherwise there is the Lakeparade in Geneva which is also not to bad, it comes with the "fete de Geneve", a huge city festival with music for everyone, not just techno addicts!
http://www.loveparade.net it's back on this year. It will be huge because it's right after the world cup. yah yah!!
