Lethargy festival starts also Saturday at 22:00 and continues till very late, and it starts again at Sunday 13:00, Would not be rare it those two just become one long lasting party.

Saturday: https://rotefabrik.ch/#/events/2201
Sunday: https://rotefabrik.ch/#/events/2202

And there are many more than the ones you just named, Dynamo, Helsinki, Spacemonky.

Anyway, my personal favourite would be Rote Fabriek, tho due to the little member of the family not a rough party night for me, Might do some of the parade during daytime and then of to home again this year.

Re: Zurich street parade 2016

I saw pictures, they looked like it was fun.

But I also saw the reason why I can't go there:



Just looking at the pic gives me symptoms of claustrophobia

I'm glad you enjoyed it.
But in my mind this is a bit like going to Woodstock in a tuxedo and have a loge above the crowd

It's mainly in the central sardine-can areas like Bellevue... if you keep to the outer parts in Niederdorf etc it's probably much better.
You were right, i wish i had read this before going. I was mostly around bellevue and burkliplatz, i left at 8 because i got fed up of being groped i went to a party instead.

We have a 2 years old and we'd like to show him the fireworks. Since his bedtime is ~9 PM, and the show is ~ 10 PM, we'd like to get back home as soon as possible, so we're thinking of taking the car to Rapperswil, but I suspect it's gonna be really crowded.
Are there some view points for the fireworks which don't require us going into town (preferably on Pfäffikon side)?
Im sorry i dont know! I hope you found a good view

So much for this " peace " festival! What a joke. This year the violence increased by 25%

Re: Zurich street parade

Was at Stadelhofen around 19:00 (not there for the Streetparade, dad had some sort of business-meeting, mom and myself kind-of rode along to do some window-shopping), took a random photo looking towards the lake.

On inspection at home, it showed a girl in the background vomiting on the ground.

So far, only 30 arrests, some assaults, a bomb-scare.

With 850k estimated visitors, this looks very tame.

Mom now knows how the end of civilization looks like.

If the end looks like this, I'd say: "Bring it on"

I trust that it was great in Zurich last night.

Texting from Zimbali, KwaZulu-Natal where it is nice and quiet.

Re: Zurich street parade

Full report is out:

https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/pd/de/i...arade2019.html


78 arrests, from all parts of the world.

If you believe the 850k visitors for a moment, that's about 1 in 10000 arrested.

10 had to go to the "get-sober-overnight-for-1000-chf" cells ;-)

The good thing is that a lot of rain is forecasted for tomorrow and so all the piss and vomit will be gone by Tuesday.
