Hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets on a sun-soaked Saturday in Zurich, ready to party at the Swiss city’s annual techno street parade after a two-year absence due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Around 850,000 people took part in the last event in 2019, this year the organizers expected between 750,000 and one million.

Under a bright blue sky, the fans gathered for the start of the free parade around two kilometers along the river in the heart of the Swiss financial metropolis.

As the temperature reached 29 degrees Celsius (84 degrees Fahrenheit), the banks of the river were packed with revelers, many taking the plunge to cool off.

The highlight of the event are 30 so-called “Lovemobiles”, mostly colorfully decorated trucks with music, DJs and party-goers.

More than 200 DJs will be DJing at this year’s event, including international stars Adriatique, Anna Tur, Ida Engberg, Reinier Zonneveld and Syreeta.

After two years marked by the pandemic, the motto of the parade was “THINK”, according to the organizers.

“Thoughts are the key to a peaceful coexistence of our cultures, no matter what religion, skin color, origin or sexual orientation people belong to,” say the organizers.

The first edition of the Street Parade was held in 1992 and attracted only 1,000 revelers and just two love mobiles.

It is now the biggest techno party in Europe.
