Quel chaud et humide Piknic dimanche dernier. On aime l’été et l’été nous aime. Un petit top 5 des meilleurs moments à consommer avec un paquet de petits pois congelés dans le cou.
1) Une programmation Montréal représente
C’était beau de vous voir en grand nombre pour encourager notre talent local. On les aime assez nos DJs. Et ça paraissait dans vos « THIS IS CRAZY ! C’EST FOU! », (parce que t’sais, Montréal, elle parle bilingue). C’était une belle dose d’amour que vous leur avez offert. Respect à tous les DJs de Lost Heroes et Mile End Record. (...)
You know the funny Quebec tradition that continues year after year, around July 25th, at campsites in the province? You know, the one that involves decorating golf karts, exchanging gifts, taking out the big holiday lights and installing them on the trailer? We’re talking about... the Camper's Christmas!
We await the date impatiently, a little like children wanting to ??open presents on the evening of 24. You’ll understand why, on July 27th, when we host a kitsch Piknic to the theme of a Camper's Christmas! (...)
After back-to-back double Piknics, we’re back to our regular format this third weekend of July. But a Sunday it will be! Montreal’s leading house-music imprint, Mile End Records, will be taking over the MOOG stage for a showcase of their new generation of talent. (...)

We were treated to a tasty double-Piknic this weekend! We’ll tell you about here in five easy steps.
This Sunday, we honor the hairy chin with a theme day, Beards-to-Piknic, in collaboration with Montreal Complètement Cirque.

Here are the top times for Sunday June 29!
1) Barcelona / Montreal
While Barcelona danced the poutine, we danced the paella. While our Montreal artists were moving feet under the Catalan sun, we got down to the sounds of artists from Spain. Isn’t that a nice concept? #tradingspaces (...)
For a second year, Piknic joins the Week-ends du Monde at Parc Jean-Drapeau with free Saturday events on July 5th and 12th. The program for these two hot days travels across sounds and music for around the world, and artists won’t be able to enjoy for free too often: Kode9, The Funkhunters, Speakeasy Electro Swing and many more! (...)
Last Sunday, a special birthday photo studio was onsite and many of you posed for the occasion, decked out in festive accessories. (...)
This Sunday, in addition to Spanish programming on MOOG scene, we’re bringing some flavors of Spain back with us.(...)
This year, Piknic gave carte blanche to the creative folks at Fake boutique to design our deluxe summer 2014 collection. (...)
For this final Sunday in June, we trade teams with our friends across the Atlantic to host our first ever Piknic Barcelona in Montreal! After a smooth 2pm lift-off helmed by the expert hands of local veterans Pfreud and GD, the MOOG stage hosts three Barcelona favourites. DJ/producer Undo has been carving out an electro-tinged version of techno since the early 2000’s, with a pair of albums out on his own Factor City label. The more laid-back beGun drops in for a live set of his chilled-out, dub-based synth-layered electronica. Finally, on-the-rise tech-house producer Coyu takes over the Calder to showcase just why he’s walked away from appearances at Sonar and Ibiza as the DJ to beat.
Over at the Smirnoff Ice Encore stage, Montreal’s hotly tipped Body Meta takes over for the whole day! From 3pm on, music connoisseurs Dimitri and Nico Sé dig deep into the history of dance music, pulling up obscure gems that span everything from African funk to disco edits, early house, and so much more!
