Fatboy Slim, Dillon Francis, Skream slated for Montreal’s long weekend OfF Piknic series
Piknic Électronik’s 19th season has returned with a roaring success, keeping the music flowing through Montréal for serendipitous end-of-weekend soireé. Aside from their regularly scheduled programming, the homegrown brand has introduced OfF Piknic, a unique event series, to their roster right in the heart of the city’s Parc Jean-Drapeau. With a focus on the best that international electronic music has to offer for Friday/Saturday evenings, September 2-3 marks the only weekend in summer with back-to-back OfF Piknic shows.
On September 2, a bevy of talent will join IDGAFOS icon Dillon Francis across the two-stage event, garnering opening support from Dance System and PØPTRT on the Vidéotron stage. On Piknic’s secondary Du Boisé stage, visitors will see Durante, A-Rock b2b Shaydakiss, and Zac Martel.
Hot off the heels of day one, September 3 brings an entire new bag of talent to the island for a night to remember–featuring performances from UK dons Fatboy Slim and Skream for the momentous day. In tow, Montréal favourites Nymra & Sofisticated will be warming up the decks, along with Cinthie, Kizi Garden Crew, and Ellxandra finishing up on the Du Boisé stage.
Piknic Électronik resumes their regular programming September 4-5, 2022, giving attendees the chance to share one final hurrah for the long weekend with headliners Tinlicker and Montréal local legend, Misstress Barbara.
