One week after the World Cup finals, the streets of Berlin are going to be full of hooligans of a different sort as Europe’s biggest party returns with a vengeance Saturday July 15.
Back after a two-year break, this year the emphasis is more on the music: besides the traditional parade of floats, organisers have added ten new fixed stages showcasing rising German labels and a stage dedicated to live electronic performance. If it all proves too much, there’s also a new chill-out area. And don’t forget the afterparties.
RA previews the Love Parade 2006 with a look at the changes that have been made this year, a bit of background to the event as well as the lowdown on who’s playing both at the Love Parade proper and at spinoff events around Berlin July 14-16, 2006.
