MONTREAL PHOTO ESSAY: PIKNIC ELECTRONIK

Posted on July 26th, 2010 by .

Piknic Electronik is Montreal’s weekly outdoor dance party.

Each week under the cooling shade of Jean Drapeau’s finest trees, international DJs spin electronic music to the masses. The event exists to share traditional perceived “nightclub” music with those who prefer their luscious beats in the light of day. And after more than a decade of Sunday afternoon dance parties, Piknic Electronik is a certifiable Montreal institution. Some even consider it their new religion.

Here are some photos from the weekly event.

One of the core principals of Piknic Electronik is accessibility to electronic music. Just because you got a couple of rug-rats, doesn’t mean that you need to stop enjoying the rhythm. Piknic is kid friendly.
