Piknic #4 (June 3)

Piknic is kicking off the month in style at the Solotech stage with an absolute icon in German electronic music. Claptone will bring his inimitable style, complete with mask, to deliver a dance music clinic that is guaranteed to get your feet moving and your heart rates pumping. Ahead of his performance, Durante will get us rocking with his passionate take on Deep House, and Montreal’s own Greenewood will start things off right, setting the stage for a day of fun and deepness.

At the Moog Audio stage, we’re presenting a Surprise Guest who will absolutely blow your socks off and have you bouncing like no tomorrow! Who is it? What will they play? You’ll just have to come through to find out, but we can’t wait because they are perfect! What we can tell you, is that Montreal’s Pascale Project will open the day with some laidback grooves perfect for stretching out on the grass or getting busy on the dance floor.

Piknic #5 (June 10)

It’s a Belgian invasion at the Solotech stage as we welcome the country’s finest to take us on a musical journey. Superstar Amelie Lens will headline with her drum heavy, uptempo style, giving us all a million reasons to sweat it out by the speakers. But first, we’ll hear from her countryman Farrago’s elegant take on techno, a full-bodied groove to light up the dance floor, and our own Laura Scavo’s dynamic beats, to start the day.

Over at the Moog Audio stage presented by local lights Bolting Bits, Montreal's Silktits will begin things followed by Toronto’s Roberto, with both bringing chillness, funk and a mix of percussive rhythms and atmospheric rollers to get things started. Then, England’s Seb Wildblood will explore the deeper side of electronic music to cap off the day.

Piknic #6 (June 17)

Get ready for an absolutely titanic birthday party, as we celebrate 30 years of Paris’ Rex Club at Piknic Électronik’s Solotech stage! What’s on the menu? How about a big US-France back-to-back set, as Louisahhh returns, this time with Maëlstrom alongside her. They’ll set the stage for France’s Traumer to keep the mood upbeat and energetic, before Rex Club resident Molly delivers big beats and tons of fun in the headlining spot. Prepare to celebrate!

Montreal’s Honeydrip will be opening the Moog Audio stage with some sun-kissed house music for everyone to get down and boogie to that same day, before passing the baton to Serbia’s master chef X-Coast. In case you don’t know: he isan absolute character on the decks, and we can’t wait to see him ramp up the energy to a whole new level all while hitting us with a heavy dose of 90’s rave nostalgia.
