Fundraving for Music and Club Culture

Our unique fundraising model

“When will the Love Parade return?” Addressed to its inven­tor, Dr. Motte, inquiries like this have been pour­ing in for years already. There seems to be a huge long­ing for its return. And to be hon­est: if it doesn’t come back now, then when should it?

Isn’t our world cur­rent­ly in urgent and par­tic­u­lar need of more joy, more peace, more sol­i­dar­i­ty – more love? Only one answer is pos­si­ble: Yes! With Rave The Plan­et, we want to bring back both the parade and its orig­i­nal spir­it. With a new over­all con­cept and finan­cial inde­pen­dence from spon­sors. That’s why we have devel­oped this spe­cial fundrais­ing mod­el that you are look­ing at right now: We call it “FUNDRAVING”!

This mod­el is intend­ed to secure financ­ing, while at the same time func­tion­ing as a mood barom­e­ter. It shows pub­lic inter­est and demand, as the fuller it gets and the faster it fills up the more clear­ly you can see how much the world real­ly wants the new parade. So, when it actu­al­ly does take place depends entire­ly on the suc­cess of the Fun­drav­ing.

That is why we are ask­ing you, and the whole world, the big ques­tion: Do you want the new parade?


Here's how it works:

Become part of a growing, colorful movement and help us to make the dream of the new parade come true. Let's rave the planet!

In our online dona­tion shop, you can donate any­thing from €5 up for a mod­el fig­ure. Over 80% of your dona­tion will be spent direct­ly on char­i­ta­ble pur­pos­es. There are sev­er­al dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories, such as ravers on the street or on street­lamps, trees, floats etc. This allows you to play an active role in shap­ing the mod­el as well as to freely select the amount of your con­tri­bu­tion.

The goal is to set up as many as 1.5 mil­lion mini ravers and to make the dream of a new parade come true. For you, for us, and for the whole world, because: We are one fam­i­ly!

What's changed?

We are a non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion. Most impor­tant­ly, this one point already serves to dis­tin­guish us from the parades of the past. Fur­ther­more, we are posi­tion­ing our­selves finan­cial­ly inde­pen­dent of spon­sors. Being able to real­ize the parade basi­cal­ly free of adver­tis­ing is real­ly impor­tant to us. We are only pro­mot­ing our elec­tron­ic music cul­ture, includ­ing clubs, labels, artists, live acts, DJ’s etc. To sum it up: the cul­tur­al work­ers, who are the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of elec­tron­ic music and the scene.

We’re adopt­ing the basic prin­ci­ples of the Berlin Love Parade and stick­ing to its true spir­it.


What does the Fundraving model look like?

We have built a mod­el – 48 meters in length — of an emp­ty Straße des 17. Juni in Berlin, which was the route of the for­mer parade between Ernst-Reuter-Platz and the Bran­den­burg Gate, with the Vic­to­ry Col­umn at its cen­ter. The mod­el is scaled at 1:87 (size H0). Entrance is free and it is open around the clock to the pub­lic.

In total, there are three phas­es of con­struc­tion which will open one after the oth­er, when­ev­er one is full:



At each head end of our mod­el, there are two freight con­tain­ers which have been weld­ed togeth­er to form one room. The mod­el-mak­ing work­shop, where every donat­ed fig­ure is glued onto tiles, and the dona­tion shop are sit­u­at­ed at one end. Sup­port­er shirts and oth­er great items, for exam­ple, can be pur­chased there. Of most inter­est is that the price of each arti­cle includes a fixed fundrais­ing amount.

Our mod­el is set up in a place that has already writ­ten tech­no his­to­ry: in the gar­den of the first Tre­sor Club, oppo­site the Ger­man Bun­desrat and thus on one of Berlin’s main arter­ies, Leipziger Straße.



Loveparade 2002 Night by Dr. Motte

Why a new parade?

We want to cre­ate a gen­uine, last­ing and holis­tic added val­ue for all cul­tur­al work­ers in our scene. Aim­ing to pos­i­tive­ly strength­en the image of club cul­ture, the new parade should again give our cul­ture a guid­ing light that encom­pass­es immense inter­na­tion­al appeal.


More­over, on the polit­i­cal lev­el, we are demand­ing more rights and more pro­tec­tion for clubs and fes­ti­vals, which are much more than just places of enter­tain­ment. These are also places of peace­ful gath­er­ing, where the spir­it of peace, love, uni­ty and respect is expressed. These are pro­tec­tive spaces in which peo­ple can live out their free­dom, cre­ativ­i­ty and indi­vid­u­al­i­ty. We would like to inspire oth­ers to cre­ate such places every­where.

We want an offi­cial­ly rec­og­nized hol­i­day for our cul­ture. Fol­lowed by a street fes­ti­val on Straße des 17. Juni, where every­one is free to expe­ri­ence the diver­si­ty of elec­tron­ic music cul­ture, the new parade will annu­al­ly cel­e­brate this offi­cial hol­i­day.

That we are a cul­ture of diver­si­ty. That is a uni­ver­sal prin­ci­ple. Our scene con­sists of many gen­res and trends, col­lec­tives, groups, indi­vid­u­al­ists… As spe­cial and unique as such facets are, put all togeth­er they form one big pic­ture: Togeth­er we are the elec­tron­ic music cul­ture.



What if the parade doesn't take place?

If not enough funds can be raised for the big parade, which will be free of adver­tis­ing, the amount col­lect­ed will be used for char­i­ta­ble pur­pos­es in accor­dance with our statutes: for the devel­op­ment and admin­is­tra­tion of Intan­gi­ble Cul­tur­al Her­itage, for the sup­port and edu­ca­tion of arts and cul­ture, for the pro­tec­tion and cul­tur­al recog­ni­tion of elec­tron­ic music, and much more.



You can vis­it our Fun­drav­ing mod­el, the exhi­bi­tion and our dona­tion shop in Berlin from 13 Jan­u­ary 2020 until the end of the year.

We are open for vis­i­tors Mon­day to Sat­ur­day from 10 to 20 o’clock.

The entrance is free!
