As it happens each year at the same time, electro music fans are gathering in Paris to dance to beats played by Techno Parade floats.
Save the date! Techno Parade 2019 will be held on Saturday September 28 from noon. Let’s follow floats equipped with sound systems and playing music from house music to techno music without forgetting dubstep and drum’n bass!
Back in 2015, Techno Parade attracted 400,000 people (a record!) who came to dance thanks to 60 DJs present on 10 different floats.
Little do we know that Techno Parade is a participating parade. It welcomes organizers, labels, artists, collectives, project sponsors willing to promote a piece of electronic culture on a float and in their own way.
This year, for this new edition, Techno Parade will pay tribute to Steve Maia Caniço.
"Following the tragic death of Steve Maia Caniço this June 21, 2019 during World Music Day in Nantes, electro music players will gather to pay one last tribute with dignity, peace and seriousness to this young man who came to dance, like hundreds of thousands of participants coming every years for 21 years as part of Techno Parade.
We cannot accept today one can die because they wanted to dance a few more minutes passed curfew.
We cannot accept that a stupid order signs the end of the life of the one who only yearn to share and dance on World Music Day.
This Techno Parade will be a new and big festive tribute to this young man, fond of electro music and who died while simply partying.
An opening procession of Techno Parade will welcome different sound systems, as well as Techno +. All participants are invited to join the procession while departing" the press release reads.
Route 2019 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.:
Meet for Techno Parade 2019 at noon at the Quai François Mitterrand. Floats will leave at 4 p.m. to join the Place d'Italie.
So, are you ready to take part in the standing of electro music?
