Fact Check: Old picture of Switzerland music fest passed off as Trumps Florida poll rally

Hyderabad: An image of a huge crowd on the streets is viral on social media with the claim that it is a part of a Donald Trump poll rally that took place in Florida in October 2020.

A Facebook user shared this image and wrote, "Trump rally in Florida...How has Biden's Crowds been? Oh, that's right ...there are too busy burning down cities. LOL". (archived post)

Fact Check:

This claim is false.

Newsmeter performed a reverse image search and found this viral picture in the gallery of a website called 'Street Parade'. This image is from a house and techno event called Street Parade Zurich which took place in 2019 in Switzerland.

The Street Parade music fest is held every year in Zurich and around 25 Love Mobiles, brightly decorated trucks packed with giant music systems, DJs, and party people drive at walking pace through the crowd of people around Lake Zurich, Switzerland.

We also found this picture on another website, 'Resident Advisor' that also mentioned that this picture was taken at the techno event.

A YouTube video by 'Street Parade Zurich' from 2019 also shows the viral image in the video.

Evidently, a picture from a techno event in Switzerland is being falsely shared as a Donald Trump's rally in Florida.
