Have a great festival!

Piknic Électronik stage

  • Todd Terje - Friday- 9:50 – 10:50PM

Norwegian moustache alert!

In case you don’t know, he wrote the 2012 hit "Inspector Norse".
Don’t miss this live set, he doesn’t pass by our side of the pond too often. Theme: Cruise ships and fun.

Here’s a video of his 2015 Glastonbury set.

  • Evian Christ  - Sunday– 8:30 – 9:30PM

A young Brit signed to Tri Angle Records. His highness Kanye West has blessed him with a co-sign. Expect a big light show and big beats. Here’s a video of his set at Best Kept Secret Festival 2015:

  • Gramatik - Sunday - 9:50 – 10:50PM

A Slovenian artist who bounces between hip-hop, jazz and electro, he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve. His live show is a massive party. The proof is in the pictures from Sonar 2015.

  • Paul kalkbrenner - Friday – 7:00 – 9:00PM

No intro needed. If you want to catch this German legend, now’s the time. 2 Hour live set: enjoy!

  • Boris Brejcha - Friday – 6:00 – 7:00PM

Mr. Brejcha’s adventurous techno is well worth your attention: you will dance! Here’s a clip to wet your appetite.

  • Skepta - Sunday – Green Stage– 4:55-5:40PM

Are you ready for UK Grime?
