Jungle Street Groove

Oberer Rheinweg
Saturday, 17 August

If you can’t get enough of basses, beats, and vibes and love it really loud, then head down to the Rhein on this Saturday. The “Jungle Street Groove” is a procession or parade of “Groove Trucks” with big sound systems that move slowly along the route while DJs or live acts loudly play Jungle, Drum’n’Bass, Dubstep, Dub, Techno, and House, often accompanied by an MC. The event will start at 13:00, when people begin to gather at Theodorsgraben near Wettsteinbrücke. The parade will set off at 14:00, moving along the Kleinbasel side of the Rhein downriver, all the way to the Klybeckquai area, where they are scheduled to arrive around 18:00. Throngs of people will follow the Groove Trucks while drinking and jiving to the sounds, accompanied by several mobile bars to keep everyone well hydrated. At the Klybeckquai, the party will continue with all groove trucks until 22:00 (officially); unofficially, it lasts into the wee hours of the morning. This event grows each year; last year, about a dozen Groove Trucks participated, attracting more than 10,000 people. Note that while sound levels are supposed to be limited to 100dB, the wearing of ear protection is recommended and supplied free of charge at the drinks carts, on the groove trucks, and at the bars..
