German techno guru Dr. Motte and 150 of his closer friends started the rave in 1989. They met at Berlin's 'Ku'damm' to celebrate a party and to demonstrate for tolerance and love.

Now hugely successful: this mobile party attracts en-vogue DJs and an enthusiastic crowd.

Some facts: In 2000, the loveparade's busiest year to date, 250 DJs on 53 wagons partied together with over a million guests!

Recently, Austria, Israel, South Africa and Mexico have joined the craze and organized their own love parades.
