Techno fans jam German capital
BERLIN -- Hundreds of thousands of techno music fans -- many in costume, others in not much at all -- jammed into the German capital Saturday for the annual Love Parade.
Youthful partygoers from across Germany and beyond danced on and alongside some 30 trucks pounding out club tracks as they converged slowly in Berlin's Tiergarten park. Police estimated the crowd at over a half-million while organizers put the turnout at 750,000.
Under this year's motto "Love Rules," the parade culminated at the city's landmark Victory Column, close to the Brandenburg Gate, with programs running late into the night from top deejays such as Felix Da Housecat, Pete Tong and Love Parade founder Dr. Motte.
It started in 1989 as a small procession of 150 ravers protesting for the right to party.
