Good news! This year, fans of Piknic Electronik can once again bring their own wine or beer, if accompanied by an actual picnic.
Piknic Electronik has taken into account the comments of our many law-abiding Piknicers who’ve considered it unjust to be restricted because of the excesses of a few bad seeds. So, each visitor who shows up with an actual picnic can also bring wine or beer if the following formats: 750ml of wine (one bottle) OR the equivalent of 1.1 litres of beers (3 small cans of 355ml or 2 tall cans of 500ml, etc).
Happy Piknicing! Bon appetit! And we look forward to seeing you once again under the Calder on Sunday, May 23 for the launch of a new season!
From May 12th to 16th, Piknic Électronik is visiting Lyon for the PLAY IT WILD Apéro sonore, presented by Glaçound.

They'll be constantly updating the Facebook Piknic Électronik Fan page during the week, to give you a taste of this very special excursion on the Old Continent.

Anticipating the outcry following the April 28 announcement of our new alcohol policy applicable at the opening of the next Piknic Électronik season, it seemed appropriate to express ourselves in order to put things back into perspective.
It seems that our last newsletter irritated several people as much in tone as with its content. Of course, this was not our intention. That being said, when news is bad, the tone employed is rarely appreciated. If our announcement was poorly received or if the tone of the letter straight out hurt anyone, we sincerely apologize.
