Dance events are still subject to tougher conditions than outdoor sports, which is why the Berlin club scene has started a boat demo. A year ago, a similar action was criticized.

Under the motto "All in one boat the second - Rave-o-lution!", Members of the Berlin party and club scene demonstrated on boats and with loud music for more freedom when celebrating on Sunday.

"Avoid cultural damage" and "Culture, you victim" were written on banners.

They pulled several boats across the Landwehr Canal in Kreuzberg.

Onlookers danced along on the banks.

A »final dance rally« was planned for the evening at Treptower Park.

The organizers criticize the fact that outdoor sports are possible in groups and without distance, but that dancing will also be more strictly regulated in the future.

It has been possible to dance outside in Berlin clubs since Friday.

Visitors have to show negative tests and sometimes wear masks.

A year ago, a similar protest had triggered criticism and irritation.

About 3,000 people took part at that time.

In the end, numerous rubber dinghies full of people swam close together, and there was a party on the bank.

Most of the participants did not adhere to the rules of distance, nor did they wear masks.

Politicians and club representatives therefore criticized the event.
