Montreal’s renowned Piknic Électronik is back in full force this summer at park Jean-Drapeau’s Plaine des jeux, for its 16th season. Every Sunday, from May 20th to September 30th, fans of electronic music will have to lace up their sneakers and sandals extra tight for their favourite festive get together, as Piknic welcomes them with its strongest programming yet.
Things will heat up right from the start, as Piknic Électronik will launch this 16th season with two extraordinary headliners for its traditional two-day double Piknic extravaganza. Champion DJ Anna (BR) will cap off Sunday May 20th, while Berghain grandmaster Marcel Dettman (DE) will bring the vibes the very next day. That’s just the beginning of a season jam-packed with electronic music’s best and brightest including Piknic veterans like scene fixture Claptone (DE), who will take control June 3rd, and Gui Boratto (BR) who’ll bring the fun on September 16th.
New stars making their Piknic debuts include highly anticipated techno adventurer Amelie Lens (BE) on June 10th, Ninja Tune dons Bicep (GB) who’ll follow up Mall Grab (AU) on July 29th, and EDM slammer Mija (US) on July 15th. They’ll also welcome hip-hop influenced electro maven Brodinski (FR) on July 8th for some booty shaking fun, while Charlotte de Witte (BE) will take charge on September 3rd. Throw in appearances by Detroit’s legendary Floorplan (US) on August 26th and a live set by electronic vanguard Henrik Shwarz (DE) for the grand finale on September 30th and it’s easy to see why it will be a huge season at Piknic.
