The long beautiful days of summer are here and Piknic Électronik is joyfully cruising along to the sounds of the hottest local and international artists. And here comes July, the busiest month of the 2017 season with FIVE gorgeous Sundays full of sizzling music. Fans of pastoral fun, remember these names and dates!

Piknic #7 (July 2nd)
Piknic is beginning July in style at the Solotech stage when we welcome a true titan of the German electronic music scene: Roman Flügel (DE). Bringing over 20 years of experience behind the decks, he'll deliver a dance music clinic you won't want to miss. Opening these festivities will be Montreal's own Lost Heroes (QC), another true pioneer. At the Moog Audio stage, the 00:AM DJs (CA) will kick the day off with House before England's Shanti Celeste (GB) keeps the vibe going while kicking up the tempo a notch, combining 4X4 rhythms to Bristol's signature bass.

Piknic #8 (July 9th)
Piknic is bringing some summer bangers and it all starts with Tazz B2B Adam Solomon (QC) at the Solotech stage followed by England's Cassy (GB), a true ambassador for new grooves who'll touch down in Montreal to deliver some of her custom jackin' beats to light up the day's grand finale. At the Moog Audio stage, we'll lift off with Stram B2B 2GZ (QC) and then it's Agata Jasper (QC), the new project from Montrealers Nico Sé & Kodok, who will bring things to a crescendo with even more laid back grooves and soulful vocals.

Piknic #9 (July 16th)
Piknic welcomes two of Spain's hottest DJs for a special 3 hour set of breezy tracks and big booming beats at the Solotech stage. We're of course speaking of Chus + Ceballos (ES), two House music veterans who'll share their love of rolling rhythms in a memorable headlining performance. Ahead of this treat, Montreal's Johnny Messina (QC) will get the party started. Meanwhile, Montreal label Jack's Kartel Records will take command of the Moog Audio stage with Charles Bye (QC)'s laid-back grooves, Chuck Fever (QC)'s unique vision of soul and the deep sounds of Spindeman (QC).

Piknic #10 (July 23th)
Two huge labels will deliver massive all-day takeovers for our 10th edition of the summer, displaying incredibly different sounds. At the Solotech stage, Toronto favorites My Favorite Robot (CA) will touch down for a special showcase, presenting a day of sophisticated and futuristic techno, with France's Chloé (FR) headlining the grand finale! As for the Moog Audio Stage, that's where Husa Sounds will mark 5 years of fun and music in our fair city with Duchesse (QC), Jimmy Be (QC) and Adam Husa (QC), who will cap the day off with his cross-genre experiments and newest musical discoveries.

Piknic #11 (July 30th)
It'll be an exceptional day when we welcome a techno and dance music legend, the one and only Motor City Drum Ensemble (DE) headlining at the Solotech stage for his first-ever Montreal performance. He is NOT known to tour North America so this will be a rare opportunity to see one of the world's greatest living DJs! And who better to open up the day than Lexis B2B Seb Fauteux (QC). At the Moog Audio stage we'll celebrate 3 years of Bolting Bits with Numea Daze (QC), Ruby Jane, Jesse Futerman (CA) and Bowly AKA OJBP (QC) to cap things off.
