Over a million attendees follow this energetic parade of club DJs’ and dancers’ floats through the centre of Berlin and abandon themselves to the chest-vibratingly loud dance, trance, techno and house music. The majority dress in risqué accordance with the festival’s title theme and inhibitions are discarded with vigour at every turn.

Peace, love and international friendship were celebrated through the appreciation of music at this festival for the first time in 1989, in anticipation of the re-unification of Germany and a new, positive Europe. It occurs on the second or third weekend in July (whichever is closest to the middle of the month), and lasts throughout Saturday and into the evening, culminating in a string of performances from the world’s top Djs.
