Let Love Rule

loveparade

Evening falls over Berlin's Kurfürstendamm Square last Saturday. The German capital hosted the famous "Love Parade," the annual techno music parade that drew hundreds of people from all over Europe.

The event has been scaled back after it peaked at almost 2 million visitors in the late nineties. Organizers have struggled to find sponsors after the city stopped considering the party a "political demonstration" and refused to pick up the tab for some of the cleaning and security costs.

A small group of hardcore fans has continued to celebrate the party each year. Last Saturday, the event took place at this famous Berlin square with DJs Westbam and Paul van Dyk who spun the crowd into a frenzy like the good old times.
