No Joy In Some Quarters

No Berlin Love Parade this year

Germany looks set to pull the plug forever on the Berlin Love Parade after organisers said they have failed to secure funding for this summers festival that used to attract over a million dance music fans.

The Parade, which had became a symbol for Berlin's 'hipness' during the 1990s, has waned in recent years, narrowly avoiding financial collapse and drawing smaller crowds as techno music has lost its trendsetting appeal and entered mainstream culture.

The party maybe over, but the glow sticks still light the awful darkness.
