Spring is in full swing, and it’s time for Piknic’s annual two day grand opening, so break out your dancing shoes! On May 19th, the Piknic stage will be under the command of local groove merchants Husa Sounds, starting with the crew’s resident Mike Haddad (QC) and the bumping sounds of Swiss house expert Tony Y Not (CH) – big beats right from the start! Then, local light Adam Husa (QC) will take us on a psychedelic adventure, before the one and only Öona Dahl (US) transports the dance floor across time and space with her unique blend of upfront styles! Then, the very next day on May 20th, the main stage will start with V.Ro (QC)’s twitchy grooves before Johnny Trika (QC) keeps us on a techno tip ahead of the legendary Dubfire (US)’s headline set, a Deep Dish clinic you can’t afford to miss.
Meanwhile, May 19th, the Boisé stage will be presented by Kizi Garden, beginning with Leëf b2b Ellxandra (QC)’s minimal flex, followed by Deck B B2B Toma Voglen (QC)’s funky selection and RoH (QC) taking us home with a peak time house master class. The next day, local online radio station N.10.AS will start your day right with Empress (QC)’ Afroelectronic eclecticism, NAP (QC)’s futuristic sounds and Baltra’s kaleidoscopic, emotive, hazy take on dance music. What a weekend!

The fun starts with Montreal’s own Simply City (QC) who’ll take us into the deepest reaches of the unknown, before Hernan Cattaneo (AR) propels us into the stratosphere with his constantly evolving approach to electronic music. It’s the deep space journey you’ve been craving!
