Piknic Électronik inaugurates 15th season and its all-new site this weekend
Piknic Électronik – Montrealers will finally be able to discover Piknic Électronik new site this Sunday May 21st and Monday May 22nd, during the traditional double opening Piknic Électronik which signals the start of summer and which will launch the 15th season of this festive weekly get together. Entirely re-conceived and now installed at Île Sainte-Hélène’s Plaine des jeux, Piknic’s new site uses its natural resources to propose new activities and put the “picnic” back into the heart of the event. The musical line-up powering these two days of celebration will be a perfect match for this important milestone in Piknic Électronik history and for the opening get-together, which is always highly anticipated by Piknickers.
A new way to spend a day at Piknic Électronik
Located right by the metro in between the original Piknic site and Jacques Cartier bridge, of which it provides a stunning view, Piknic’s new site invites people to truly take advantage of nature and discover a new way to enjoy these famous musical Sundays, which have become a “can’t miss” part of Montreal summers. Bigger and greener, the Plaine des Jeux space offers sun and shade in equal measure with furniture (picnic tables, lounge chairs and hammocks) carefully spread out to allow Piknickers to hang out with friends and family. The Piknic spirit remains the same, but visitors can now plan out their experience like a day at the park and take advantage of additional installations, including a volleyball court and a special space designed for little Piknickers, which will feature programming as of June. All of that, scored by the best electronic music delivered by the best artists from here and abroad.
In addition to allowing Piknic to reinvent itself for its 15th season, this new venue also offers the possibility to explore and experiment with new concepts with a strong potential for international development, and to welcome other outdoor events throughout the summer season. This is yet another step in Piknic Électronik’s growth, as the event’s expertise and brand has already begun expanding internationally for several years now.
