Love Parade

Recommended Posts

Not heard any info apart from this. Can anyone tell me (if they remember) why the 2001 Love Parade was cancelled? I went abroad before it, came back and then there was talk of it never actually taking place in Newcastle... but no-one ever explained why!

The council refused the licence on safety grounds. I think it was because the expected numbers were higher than originally expected. A lot like Leeds was (so it moved to a bigger location), except Newcastle Council are cr@p when it comes to licencing.

There was a Love Parade festival last year, but this one could be a proper parade :?

I remember Tong interviewing Dr Motte and PvD at the Leeds Love Parade in 2000, and they both said that it could never match the German one especially if it was organized and sorted by Radio 1 - it had to be an independent movement. So is it being covered this year by R1?
