You can’t stop progress, people! As of Sunday, August 24th, Piknic’s going cashless and moving to digital payment. What’s it mean? That means that ALL transactions on the Piknic site will happen through the RFID chip in your wristband or season pass that every piknicer scans at the gate. (...)
After last Sunday’s trip to the Jardin des Floralies, we return to Place de l’Homme this weekend for what ought to be a showstopper of a party. On the MOOG stage, the music gets rolling at 2pm with Montreal duo Verness, featuring deep-house DJ Pierre Babin and the more eclectic stylings of Eric St-Pierre. (...)
For our first Piknic in August, we’re proud to be hosting a special seventh birthday party for the Montreal success story that is the Music Is My Sanctuary website.

Indeed, our classic triple-Piknic is back again this year with a generous fall harvest of a line-up. (...)
Osheaga 2014 is over and, of course, we’re already looking forward to next year. A big thank you goes out to Evenko for giving Montreal a decadent dose of festival fever. Piknic is proud to take part in this major event! Marie-Laure and Michel of the Programming Department gave us their top performances and best moments of this 9th edition. (...)
Objekt absolutely smashed it at Freerotation 2014. Nonstop top-shelf techno and electro bangers. Buckle up!
This Sunday, August 3rd, Piknic takes a VACATION! Because there’s this small festival storming Parc Jean-Drapeau. Osheaga… you know it? Once more this year, the Piknic Electronik stage is back. You can attend the performances of Tom Trago, Laurent Garnier, Breach, Jon Hopkins and many others instead!
As always, just a reminder, you must have your Osheaga ticket or pass to access the site and the Piknic stage. Piknic’s season pass is not valid this weekend! (...)
