Picnik Electronik Wraps Up Big

Picnik Electronik Wraps Up Big

Judging from the crowds this summer, it’s pretty clear that the word on Piknic Electronik has gotten out. The reasons why are pretty obvious – not only do they bring some of the best electronic music to Montreal, but they bring it to a beautiful outdoor setting smack dab in the middle of Sunday afternoon. The PIKNIK season is drawing to a close, so you make sure you get yourself out there soon…

Located out on Parc Jean-Drapeau (easily reachable by METRO), finding the Piknik once you’re there is easy. Sure, the signs help, but I usually just follow the bass filtering through the trees. Everything starts up at 2pm and goes until after the sun goes down, so your Sunday plan is easy: get up, get some brunch and then go get down. Since there’s one only installment left, now is the time to experience this unique event…

October 4th: Picnik teams up with Pop Montreal to finish things off with a bang. They start off with DJ Valeo (ex-Khiasma) who returns from his new home in Toronto to bring his world-spanning love of dance music back to the Piknic. Then, at 5:30, the legendary Mike Simonetti of New Jersey, whose record label, Troubleman Unlimited, has showcased groups like Errase Erata, Black Dice, The Walkmen, Devendra Banhart and Les Georges Leningrad to the world. Fitting that the last act of the Pikinic is a huge one- the UK’s Zombie Disco Squad. This powerhouse duo has taken house music on wild ride through Baile funk, African music, hip hop and more, and are going to set that dance floor on fire. They hit the decks at 7:30.

And hey, no one likes Mondays anyway. Might as well have a really good reason why…
