What to expect at Piknic Électronik in June
It's official: Piknic's 20th season is officially underway☀️
Montreal, June 1, 2023 — Since Sunday, May 21, Piknic Électronik has taken root in its new site at Parc Jean-Drapeau, and has already attracted nearly 35,000 fans! For the coming summer Sundays, expect loads of laughter with friends, delicious buckets to share, and moments of pure bliss in the company of our favourite artists. And for the month of June, none other than 2ManyDJs, Miss Monique, and local favourite Planet Giza will be on hand to celebrate the ritualist festival’s 20th anniversary, which truly is the envy of the world.
Artists to Set the Pace in June
The month kicks off on a festive note, with the eagerly awaited Belgian duo 2ManyDJs taking to the scène Fizz for a wild DJ set on Sunday, June 4. On the scène du Boisé, Montreal local Jesse Futerman is sure to enchant audiences with his euphoric jazz. On Sunday, June 11th, Ukrainian-born star Miss Monique makes her return to Montreal, following her memorable performance at an Après-Ski party during Igloofest — who could ever forget her set in the biosphere for Le Cercle. Finally, on Sunday, June 25, Piknic will be all fleur-de-lys, with the unmissable hip-hop trio Planet Giza performing a DJ set in our glorious blue and white on the scène Fizz. And to add some sparks to the mix, Ouri is going to spoil us with elegant rhythms on the scène du Boisé.
Four OfF Piknic Events on the Bill
This month's OfF Piknic concert series features four festive dates: long-awaited rapper Hamza takes over the stage on Friday, June 2; Saturday, June 3, features Dirtybird, bringing together Claude VonStroke and legendary Green Velvet on the same stage; on Friday, June 23, Piknic welcomes American star John Summit and his sun-drenched beats; and to round things off, French duo The Blaze will present a live show that we know is going to go hard, on Saturday, June 24.
Piknic Electronik Would Like to Thank its Precious Partners
Piknic Électronik would never have become the flagship event of Montreal summers without the support of its precious collaborators.

Piknic greatly thanks its sponsors SAQ, Vodka Stoli, Les îles, Canadian Club, Bleu Royal, Fruitz, Redbull; and its public partners Parc Jean-Drapeau, Tourisme Montréal, and the Government of Quebec.
