Love Parade

Love Parade Berlin
(Image licensing info here )
The Love Parade is one of Berlin's most famous - and most notorious - events, a massive techno party held in the Tiergarten.

Following a two-year pause caused by financial difficulties, the Love Parade returned in 2006 with the motto "the love is back". Between 500,000 (according to the police) and 1.2 million (according to the organisers) participants turned up; it certainly looked like there were far fewer ravers than there used to be during the parade's glory days.

As of February 22 it looks like the Love Parade will not be taking place this year.
