Le Piknic Électronik

Founded in 2003, the Piknic Électronik is a weekly electronic music summer event that takes place in the Place de l’Homme on St. Helena Island, Montreal, Quebec. Some weeks, the event moves to other sites on the same island, or on the nearby Ile Notre-Dame. In addition, some sporadic Piknic’s are organized during the year with specific themes:

  1. Cabane à sucre électronik aka Sugar Shack Electronik (at Jean Drapeau Park on 4 and 5 April 2009)
  2. Igloofest (external event taking place on several evenings during the winter in Montreal)
  3. Piknic @ Vancouver (Stanley Park June 24, 2010, in collaboration with Francophone Summer Festival Vancouver)


Mindful of its mission to democratize electronic music and talent contained in the electronic music scene in Montreal and internationally, the Piknic Électronik is intended as a weekly event combining fun and innovative discovery.
