Techno music fans attend Street Parade
Several hundred thousand techno music fans braved the rain Saturday to attend Zurich rave party.Zurich -- Several hundred thousand techno music fans braved the rain Saturday to attend one of Europe's biggest rave parties, the Street Parade, in the Swiss city of Zurich, local media reported.
At around 13h00 GMT, the Love Mobiles -- themed trucks carrying DJs playing a spectrum of electronic music -- began travelling through the crowd along the 2.4 kilometre route, Swiss news wire ATS and Zurich-based newspaper TagesAnzeiger said.
While the rain may have ruined some make-up and body paint, it did not appear to have dampened the mood.
The party lasted until the early hours of Sunday, with top DJ Paul Van Dyk playing on the main stage until midnight.
Street Parade started in 1990 with 2,000 techno fans. It has since grown into one of the biggest rave parties in Europe.
Some 850,000 people attended the Zurich party in 2008, according to the event's organisers.
