Zurich (Street Parade), CH

It has been an established cultural event for 26 years (27th Edition in 2018) and with up to one million people partying the world’s largest techno parade. Every year, the Street Parade brings the world’s best DJs, producers and musicians in the field of electronic music to Zurich. The most colourful house and techno parade in the world fascinates hundreds of thousands of dance fans from every continent year after year. The first one took place back in 1992 (see archive video here).


Thanks for raving with us! By order of the government the Street Parade 2021 cannot take place due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. See you at the next Street Parade in August 2022.

Around 30 Love Mobiles – brightly decorated trucks carrying vast music systems, deco, DJs and party people – drive at walking pace through the crowds around the lakeside in Zurich. In addition to these 30 travelling stages, eight stages along the route round off the varied range of electronic music available with top DJs, live acts and multimedia entertainments.

As an innovative lifestyle event, the Street Parade presents innovations in the field of electronic music, fashion and digital art and has gained an international reputation as a contemporary music festival. Yet it is still a demonstration of the values of love, peace, freedom and tolerance, plus electronic music. The Street Parade is an important generating force which not only triggers an enthusiasm for this culture each year; it also provides a vital new impetus that encourages diversity in both the world of music and in the clubs.
