The Street Parade in Zurich is an impressive techno parade that takes place along the picturesque Lake Zurich. As the largest techno party in the world and the second largest event in the city of Zurich after Züri Fäscht, it has also earned a reputation as the fifth largest music festival in the world. During this spectacular event, hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic electro and techno fans from all over the world gather to transform Zurich’s lake basin into a vibrant dance paradise.
The history of the Street Parade began on September 5, 1992, when mathematics student Marek André Krynski came up with the idea for this extraordinary event. The parade was officially approved as a demonstration for love, peace, freedom, generosity and tolerance and has been sending out a strong signal for acceptance and diversity in society ever since.
Street Parade – the biggest techno party in the world in Zurich
In summery August, Zurich is transformed into a pulsating metropolis of electronic sounds and fiery beats. The city comes to life when the Love Mobiles move along the picturesque lake basin and the streets are populated by hundreds of thousands of dance enthusiasts. The Street Parade is undoubtedly the biggest techno spectacle in the world and an unmissable highlight in the event calendar of Zurich.
Since its humble beginnings in the 1990s, the Street Parade has evolved to include other electronic music genres such as house, drum’n’bass and dubstep in its repertoire alongside the established trance and techno genres. The variety of musical styles reflects the openness and tolerance of the event, which stands for love, peace and freedom.
The official Street Parade is just the beginning of a breathtaking festival that sends the city into a nocturnal frenzy. The celebrations continue with a plethora of after-parties, including the legendary “Insomnia” in the Hallenstadion, the energetic “Synergy” in the Alte Kaserne and the rousing “The Rooftop” at Samigo Amusement. The famous “Lethargy” is celebrated at the Rote Fabrik, which, like the Street Parade itself, has made the leap from an underground party to an absolute highlight of the Zurich summer.
The Street Parade and its accompanying events attract not only locals, but also people from all over the world. They unite people in a common spirit of joy and celebration, while celebrating the beauty and diversity of electronic music. For all lovers of electronic music, the Zurich Techno Party is an unforgettable experience that captivates them anew every year.
