Program : final Piknic!


Can you believe our 2011 Piknic season is coming to an end already? Why, it only seems like a few weeks ago that we were setting up under the Calder for the first time, and marveling as thousands of piknicers rolled in for Dubfire and company. Ah, the memories!

Well, we’re going out with the chootzpah that got us started, and we’ve partnered with our good friends at POP Montreal to bring you an extra-special finale. So strap on what’s left of your tattered summer dancing shoes and get down to Place de l’Homme this Sunday before we move on to Igloofest! ***IMPORTANT::: We strongly recommend that you take the metro to get to this event. Due to the Montreal Marathon, there will be several road closures in effect, hence driving will be difficult.

The gates open, as usual, at 2pm, with Salon Daomé residents and all-round cool ladies Nymra & Sofisticated working the decks with their touch of deep-tech, tech-house, and techno. One of Montreal’s club veterans, Mightykat, graces the decks at 5pm for another three hours as we give the Piknic soundsystem a run for its money on this final day. Come 8pm, our favourite trio of French hooligans, dOP, crosses the Atlantic to deliver their version live vocal bro-house!

Over at the GURU Stage, things get going at 3pm with locals Waterfront Property, who’ll be followed at 5pm by veteran spinner of all tunes suave and Balaeric, DJ Menjai. At 6pm, we’re treated to the live-electronics duo of Leboeuf et Laviolette, who promise to take things over the top. They’ve chosen to right day to go there!
