Last attendees depart site of illegal techno party


Only a handful of participants remained early on Monday at a meadow near Nymburk, east of Prague, after attending an illegal techno party at the site at the weekend which attracted up to 6,000 people in total. Around 200, the Czech News Agency reported, had remained at the site a day earlier. The local mayor has complained the field was damaged by the illegal gathering while locals complained that the loud music had disturbed the peace. The party began on Friday; police tried to get attendees to leave but otherwise did not step in.
