Zurich really comes to life in summer. In August electronic sounds will make the city vibrate and hundreds of thousands will be dancing on the streets of Zurich. The Street Parade sparks an incredible party atmosphere with 30 love mobiles, hundreds of DJs and seven stages around the Lake Zurich basin. It is the largest techno party in the world and an indisputable highlight of Zurich's event calendar.

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.
