Can’t wait for Jazz Fest or Just for Laughs? Well, you’re in luck – because as soon as the sun comes out Montreal gets right to work on outdoor fun – and Piknic Electronik (or Picnique Electronique if you stumble across the French version) aims to keep the party going all the way from May to September! So for the perfect Montreal vacation, book your accommodation at CorporateStays.com and hit up the hottest dance music festival of the year!
The idea behind the weekly festival is to play world-class, innovative electronic music in a fun, sunny, social atmosphere, and they couldn’t have picked a better location than Parc Jean Drapeau – with it’s gorgeous waterside picnic spots and sweeping vista of the city skyline – all just a five minute metro ride from downtown.
Not an electro enthusiast? It’s worth checking out Piknic Electronik for the atmosphere alone – there are some great food trucks, everyone’s in a great mood, and the ‘silent discos’ are a must-do, just for the story you’ll have to tell afterwards!
Best way to experience Piknic? Download the app – you’ll have the programming schedules at your fingertips, as well as descriptions of artists, photos and videos of the event. Then get your ticket online, jump on the yellow line metro (direction Longueuil), and dance until the sun goes down!
