Prins Thomas, Marcellus Pittman, Ardalan, Christian Martin, Jesse Rose and a constellation of Montreal stars, this June at Piknic Électronik

June 6, 2017

It's unanimous! Everyone has fallen in love with Piknic Électronik's new site at la Plaine des jeux, where Piknickers have quickly found their new favourite spots. The inviting greenery, the original decor, the diverse activities, the welcoming site set-up, the immense wooden dance floor and a cascading view of each of the two stages with the river, the city and Jacques-Cartier Bridge as a background, it all feels like home from the second you arrive. And summer is just beginning!

Are you ready for the stunning days of June? Here's an overview of the fabulous programming for the first month of this 15th festive season.

Piknic #3 (June 4th)
June kicks in with full force at the Solotech stage with Norwegian space disco pioneer Prins Thomas. On the same decks, we'll shake it up to the famous Detroit sound of Marcellus Pittman (US) and an opening set by Erik Faulkner (QC).

Piknic #4 (June 11th)
Summer at Piknic just wouldn't be complete without a visit from the Dirtybird crew, and this time it's Ardalan (US) and Christian Martin (US) who're joining the party for a back-to-back set at the Solotech stage. They'll be following up selections from White (QC) and the irresistible booty bass of Mandiz (QC). June 11th also marks the annual visit of our peers from FME, who'll deliver experimental-tinged programming at the Moog Audio stage with Feu St-Antoine (QC), Co/ntry (QC)'s first ever DJ set, and Woulg (QC).

Piknic #5 (June 18th)
It'll be an emotional day at the Solotech stage when we welcome Jesse Rose's "Thanks for Dropping By: The Final World Tour." Canadian B.Traits will join us from her London base for this special day, and Auvertone (QC) will open the celebrations. At the Moog Audio stage, we'll be celebrating FrontRite's Elusion Sessions' 1st anniversary with Debbie Døe (QC), Nic Falardeau (QC) and Kora (QC).

Piknic #6 (June 25th)
To celebrate its 15th anniversary, Piknic will deliver a 100% Quebecois line-up, reuniting big names and friends of the festival that have helped it grow and that have propelled it on its journey. The Solotech stage will see pioneers in house master Fred Everything and an exceptional live set from Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts. The Moog Audio stage will also pay homage to a pioneering techno expert DJ Mini, before the finale goes to Ponsolo who'll fly the flag for the new wave.

That's a lot of breathtaking music for a single month, but who'd want to miss a single minute? See you at the Plaine des jeux!
