By 4 PM, a large crowd—young ravers, older folk, mums with prams—had assembled outside the local town hall, waving flags and placards with slogans like “Let Us Dance,” “Hard Trance Against Profit” and “ACAB: All Clubs Are Beautiful.” Classic tunes played from a soundsystem. On a small stage, various local politicians and stakeholders made brief speeches, occasionally amping up the atmosphere.

“Clubkultur ist Kultur!” hollered Falko Liecke, deputy mayor of Neukölln, to loud whoops and applause.
