Street Parade and more
The climax of Zurich’s packed calendar is as colourful as it is loud and lively. The Street Parade, running for more than 20 years, hosts up to a million people dancing exuberantly along the lake shore to a techno beat.
What started with 1,000 people in 1992 fires the enthusiasm of hundreds of thousands of dance aficionados from throughout the world today. The Street Parade sparks an incredible party mood atmosphere with 30 love mobiles, hundreds of DJs and seven stages around the Lake Zurich basin. Since its beginnings in the 90s, diverse electronic music styles, e.g., House, Drum'n'Bass and Dubstep, have also set foot on the scene in addition to Trance and Techno.
In fact, the city is buzzing the whole year – with events including outdoor concerts, open-air film screenings, the Weltklasse Zürich athletics meetings, the Zürich Festival and dazzling New Year’s Eve fireworks.
