The Love Parade Is No More
Organizers of Germany's Love Parade techno dance party have announced that the 21 year-old annual event is permanently canceled "out of respect to those killed and injured" on Saturday. Nineteen attendees were killed and hundreds were injured during a mass panic in the sole entrance tunnel to the event. Fearing further chaos, police instructed the DJs to continue playing for several hours, since most of those already inside had no idea what had occurred. I'd always wanted to attend the Love Parade, having only gotten a small taste at San Francisco's version of the party in 2006. Below is the 2001 remix of Da Hool's 1997 classic, Meet Her At The Love Parade.
