Berlin's Love Parade is set to host a “fundraver” live stream for its 2022 event.
After coronavirus restrictions forced the team to cancel this year's event, organisers announced in January that it will return in a new, not-for-profit guise, Rave the Planet, in July 2022.
Berlin's Love Parade is set to return in a new format next year.
Organisers of a brand new street party in Berlin, Rave The Planet, have announced that their debut street parade will take place on the 9th July 2022, after coronavirus restrictions forced the team to cancel this year's event.
"For us it was... where everything started from. It was in the middle of mountains, so you have that view from the stage. The first time they did a party for two days, there were people with caravans, tents — it was that kind of rave.”
“Everything that is around you influences you. Think about Berlin — it’s very dark, the city is quite like that. In Napoli, we have sun, sea... it’s more Latin. So maybe we are bringing that through,” Madonna says, explaining how the lush-yet-gritty landscape might impact the city’s aural output. He seems to have forgotten industrial might.
We’re told Neapolitans have a phrase — wherever you go, there is always Coca-Cola, Martini and someone from Naples. As much as the port brings in, it puts out, leading to a roaming band of dedicated local disciples at any date in the world, that books someone from the city. But a trade deficit has also emerged. The demise of clubs such as Old River and the 5,000-capacity indoor Metropolis betray a wider struggle in the dance community.
Markantonio, meanwhile, is still in Naples’ charmingly crumbling centre. Like Madonna, he’s proud of the city and its identity, but agrees there are issues. “Everything we do here is 10 times more difficult than in Holland or Germany or wherever.” Genny Mosca also understands. After two decades in the Neapolitan promotions game, while running a label and artist agency, he’s seen all sides of the dance industry.
Charges related to the deaths at the 2010 Love Parade in Duisburg, Germany have been dropped against seven defendants. A remaining three defendants will now face charges in the case.
The 2010 Love Parade ended with the deaths of 21 people and injuries of around 500 others following a stampede caused due to overcrowding at the event.
A new exhibition, called Nineties Berlin, is to offer visitors the chance to revisit the city’s 1990s techno scene.
Created by the team behind Berlin’s DDR Museum, it will look into the parties and music of the decade which paved the way for the techno haven that Berlin is today.
Visitors will start their tour with a 16-minute film to set the scene, revisiting the time following the fall of the Berlin Wall when the city was reunited as east Berliners crossed over into the west and new sounds began to take shape and spread.
Ten people have gone to trial in Germany accused of negligent manslaughter and bodily harm after a stampede during the iconic music festival Love Parade left 21 people dead and over 600 injured in 2010.
The victims — 13 women and 8 men, and were aged between 18 and 38 — were from a host of different countries, including Australia, Italy, the Netherlands, China, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Spain.
The victims were crushed to death and suffocated when a panic and then a subsequent stampede broke out in a tunnel in the western city of Duisburg.
Love Parade festival organisers will stand trial for the stampede that caused 21 deaths at the event in 2010, a German court has ruled.
The incident, which saw more than 500 other people also injured, took place as thousands of attendees attempted to pass through a tunnel that served as the only entrance to the Love Parade in Duisburg, Germany. The event’s capacity was set at 250,000, but 500,000 were reportedly in attendance.
