Ravers bring Zurich message of "love, freedom and tolerance"

The DJs help temperatures rise among the masses

(Keystone Archive)

This year's Street Parade in Zurich, which begins August 11, is expected to again attract hundreds of thousands of techno and house music fans, dancers and exhibitionists. The organisers have chosen "love, freedom and tolerance" as the parade's motto.

Up to 750,000 people are expected to participate, dancing their way along city streets and the shores of Lake Zurich. It is the 10th edition of the Street Parade, which is second in size only to Berlin's Love Parade.

The dancers are expected to express love, freedom and tolerance in the most outlandish fashion.

The parade begins at 3:15 pm at the Mythenquai and snakes some four kilometres around the lakeshore before ending at Hornbachstrasse, where the last Love Mobile is expected to arrive five hours later.

To mark the 10th anniversary, two of the 30 "Love Mobiles" will remain on Zurich's streets at the end of the parade to keep the party going until midnight. As usual, the party will also continue indoors at many venues across the city until the early hours of the morning.
