    Too many people at too little space. Apparantly it was this year not in the middle of a city, where you could reach the place from every direction, but at a closed area that was only reachable through one (or at least very few. Don't know for sure) way. They already stopped letting people in, which of course made others, who were just arriving, angry.

    From CNN article

    "Lueb told CNN that some 1.4 million people showed up at the popular festival, which features dozens of DJs spinning techno music for hours."

    Of course they are required to specify that with this tragedy.......

    15 people died http://www.aolnews.com/article/stamp...-15%2F19567253

    they should have the entrance outside the festival where no one can hear or see the party + they should have like 1 entrance in the whole club and one big line. but small line so people don't try to get in all in one time.

    ------------edit--------

    "The party continued even after the deaths, with many of the revelers unaware of the accident. At least one million were expected to attend the event. "

    The cause of the stampede: TECHNO MUSIC!

    lmao. no really, sounds like all this could have been avoided by not half assing the event planning.

    To be fair, they did this to prevent an even bigger panic. Otherwise everybody had tried to go home at the same time or even had started a riot, which definitely had caused way more trouble! (Also some DJs like Boys Noize and David Guetta refused to play.)

    Also it pisses me off that Dr. Motte (original founder of the Love Parade who has nothing to do with it anymore since 10 years or so) is now apparently giving hundreds of interviews where he comes across way too schadenfroh, because he now has a good reason to publicly critizise the parade for something better than: "They totally sold out".
