Berlin's Love Parade is set to host a “fundraver” live stream for its 2022 event.
After coronavirus restrictions forced the team to cancel this year's event, organisers announced in January that it will return in a new, not-for-profit guise, Rave the Planet, in July 2022.
They have now teamed up with TikTok for a six-hour 'fundraver' live stream. Set to broadcast exclusively via TikTok on Saturday, 10th July, the fundraiser will feature six DJs from across Germany who are closely tied to the event, including DJ, producer and Love Parade founder Dr Motte. Ann Clue, Klanglos, Mark Dekoda, Stella Bossi, and Nakadia will also perform.
“Rave The Planet is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the spirit and culture of electronic music," organisers said. “Our initiators are artists, ravers, entrepreneurs - including the inventor of the Love Parade, Dr. Motte. With our work, we want to make a sustainable, positive impact on techno culture.”
Rave The Planet also recently outlined the organisation's three major goals: to protect, promote and develop the culture of electronic dance music in all its forms, to classify the culture of electronic dance music as an Immaterial Cultural Heritage under the UNESCO, and to establish the annual street party, based on the original values of Love Parade and "progressively designed for the 21st century".
After launching in 1989, the Love Parade took place across Germany in various cities including Berlin and Ruhr. The final Love Parade, which took place in 2010, ended in tragedy after 21 people were killed and around 500 others injured following a stampede caused due to overcrowding at the event.
Watch the fundraver here on Saturday, 10th July.
