Piknic Électronik Montreal is an outdoor electronic music festival with a great atmosphere. The event takes place in the Parc Jean-Drapeau, just 10 minutes from downtown Montréal. Thousands of electronic music enthusiasts gather in the picturesque Plaine des Jeux every Sunday from mid-May to late September.
The festival has been one of the main highlights of the Montreal summer for over 15 years. In 2012, Piknic Électronik was organized in Barcelona, followed by Melbourne, Dubai, and Santiago. House-spinning DJs work the decks on two stages while people socialize and dance on the grass. Children under 12 can attend the festival for free, but adults need to purchase tickets.
