Art of Love Kills 20 at Love Parade.

On 25th July 2010, the Annual Trance Festival "Love Parade" which was held at Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany met with a disaster of stampede at a overcrowded tunnel leading into the festival killing nearly 20 and injuring almost 500 people.
The organizers expected about 8,00,000 Trance Addicts will attend the festival,but the number exceeded to about 1.5 million and the rumors say that the fire department had previously alarmed that the selected place was not suitable for the event.

Entrance was granted at 14:00 CEST (12:00 UTC). The 200 to 300 metre-long tunnel was the only entrance and exit point of the festival area.The parade area reportedly had become overcrowded and police at the entrance began announcing over loudspeakers that new arrivals should turn around and head back. The side of the tunnel that was the entry of the parade area was closed, but people continued to enter the tunnel from the rear, despite being told it was closed. A stampede occurred as the tunnel became overcrowded.

Cancellation :-
As a consequence to the human crush,Love Parade organizer Rainer Schaller said Love Parade would never be held again

Rainer Schaller -"The Love Parade has always been a joyful and peaceful party, but in future would always be overshadowed by yesterday's events,"
"Out of respect for the victims, their families and friends, we are going to discontinue the event in the future, and that means the end of the Love Parade."
Eyewitness,Salil Bhate: "People had trample marks on their face"

Trance Heaven On Earth Team expresses its deep condolences to all those who have lost their lives in this event.May their souls Rest In Peace and we grant our prayers to all the families of those who were hurt and killed so that God gives them courage to bear the excruciating loss.
