Reincarnation 2006 in front of the New Town Hall

The reincarnation was a techno parade followed by a rave that took place between 1995 and 2006 in Hanover .


Reincarnation has almost always taken place on the penultimate weekend in August since 1995. After the Love Parade was discontinued , it was at times Germany's largest techno parade . It usually had six-digit visitor numbers. The last parade was in 2006. In 2007, the event was canceled by the organizers because the Love Parade took place in Essen on the same day. Also in 2008 the parade was canceled at short notice by the city of Hanover vis-à-vis the organizer.

The first two parades started and ended in the Technoclub Cyberhouse on the Hanomag site. Then the parade started and ended at Schützenplatz and led through Hanover city center. The route was relocated several times in order not to hinder business operations in the city center. At the end of the parade, an official rave took place, which was divided into several locations, so-called "locations". The purchase of a ticket gave access to all locations. Since 1996 the parades have been planned and carried out by the Hanoverian event agency ShowTops (Klaus Ritgen & Markus Wehmeier), which also owns the naming rights.

To ride on the trucks, a ticket that could be purchased from the respective organizer was necessary. The aforementioned raves, which take place in several locations, also required a ticket that could be obtained from the organizers of the reincarnation in the ticket office or at the corresponding advance booking offices. Participation in the parade, which usually lasted several hours, was free.
