Dance your way through the streets of the capital.
The aim of the Techno Parade, organised by the Technopol association, is to promote the French electronic music scene with a large-scale, fun, open-air musical event for everyone, totally free of charge.
Besides the theory and philosophy this is a well run Paris institution: 11 months of preparation, a 5 to 6 km parade route, 20-odd floats which come from all over France, 150 performers, 100 volunteers and 500 000 participants thronging the streets of Paris.
The Parade itself will be made up of half a million dancing, fun-loving music fans - so whether you dig electro music and in particular the French touch or are just curious and feel like joining in the fun, you will hear every imaginable style (trance, hard-tek, house, psy, goa, DnB, jungle…) to suit everyone's tastes. Experience the techno vibe in the heart of Paris, a mobile nightclub in the daylight, with some of the best DJs on the planet: this is one of the best street parties in Europe.
