Germany's Love Parade techno-music festival is forever gone after the stampede tragedy.

Love Parade forever gone after a horrific stampede tragedy. The Love Parade organizers have canceled the annual event forever after the recent tragedy. Twenty people were killed and over five hundred were injured.

The stampede broke out last weekend at the techno-music festival held in Duisburg, Germany. The German police have been investigating the organizers of the annual event. According to the German National Police, they urged the organizers to cancel last year's Love Parade because the venue was too small for the number of people attending.

There were an estimated 1.5 million people in Duisburg this year when security personnel attempted to stop more from entering the former freight railway station where the festival is held. Thousands became trapped in a tunnel that was the only entrance into the grounds, setting off a mass panic and stampede.

The Love Parade in Germany has been canceled forever, stated organizer, Rainer Schaller. "The Love Parade was always a peaceful and joyous party that will now forever be overshadowed," Schaller added. "Out of respect for the victims, families, and friends, we will discontinue the event. The Love Parade is no more."
