Piknic Electronik: Keeps Montreal Dancing for 16th Season

Piknic Electronik has turned into one of the most iconic summer festivals of Montreal. I had the chance to hit the festival one time this summer with a bunch of my friends and we did not regret our decision even for a second. If you don’t believe me, click play on the video above to feel the vibe yourself!

Summer-Long Sunday Dance Party

Attracting music lovers from all over Canada and the world, Piknic Electronik stays true to its name and offered us a great opportunity to dance and enjoy music. The music party usually lasts until 9:30pm and offers the surreal experience of dancing to electronic beats in the beautiful Montreal sunset. Piknic Électronik has launched a new YouTube series called ’45 Minutes with’ that you can check out if you missed a particular DJ. The first video of the series was actually created when I attended and jammed to the lovely MIJA: https://youtu.be/SkikIkSas-s

Dance your Pants off!

Traditionally, the first things that pops up in your mind when you think about electronic music are the late night, disco-lit clubs. This music event aims to make people realize the true beauty of electronic music. The family environment also makes a huge difference so that you and your entire clan can enjoy electronic beats like never before.

It can get no cooler than this; you get to sip your drink, dance to the beats, have fun with your loved ones, and enjoy the scenic beauty of St. Lawrence.

My Two Cents

The festival is very popular and sometimes, you can get stuck in lines. So save your time and purchase an online ticket. Don’t forget to purchase your drink bucket and take home that pail souvenir! I would also want to warn those who love being the first ones to reach a show or an event that the real fun starts a bit later in the afternoon. If you’re with a family, it may be better to arrive earlier so that you have a little time for yourself before the crowds. Also, remember that it is an outdoor event, which means lots of rays of sunshine. Don’t forget to dress up comfortably and stay hydrated to enjoy your music and your picnic. And my final piece of advice: DO NOT MISS THIS EPIC EVENT!
