The Rave The Planet Parade is a political demonstration and currently the biggest techno parade in Germany. For the second time, we will take to the streets with interesting speeches and lots of music on July 08, 2023 to demonstrate for “peace, preservation of the electronic music culture and the recognition of its cultural and social achievements”.
The motto of the Rave The Planet Parade 2023 is
“Music Is The Answer”
What was the question? Let’s boil it down…
Rave The Planet, that’s our name and also our mission statement. Electronic music always had and still has the power to make the world a better place. It brings us together peacefully without making a difference. techno parades are open and free for all people, no matter what nation, religion, skin color, gender classification, social background and so on.
Music is our common language and our means of understanding. The beat enables many hearts to beat together as one and thus makes it possible to overcome what divides and strengthen what unites. This is the basis for peace.
Therefore: Don’t talk – dance! #MusicIsTheAnswer
Attend? Get involved!

We are expecting a large number of participants again this year. In order to ensure the safety of everyone, including the Berliners who are not participating in the parade, the police have instructed us to relocate the demonstration route completely into the Tiergarten district. This means that the parade will exclusively move along the Straße des 17. Juni, between Brandenburg Gate and Großer Stern (included). The floats will drive in a circular motion there.
We are a non-profit organization that is funded by donations. We depend on your donations to be able to realize our various cultural projects (e.g. the parade).
