It has to be said: Construction Holiday Sunday was bursting in colours! You saw plenty of the fluorescent oranges and “Attention DANGER!” ribbon. Out of sight on the Piknic site. It was during this hot July day we also had some great musical discoveries. We hope you took our advice to heart in terms of how to survive a Piknic during a heat wave. So here’s our weekly top times for the last Piknic of July (...)
This Sunday, the Piknic team is dressing up the site with a CONSTRUCTION HOLIDAY theme in mind. Orange cones, potholes, traffic signs and tools of all kinds will be stage the event to make the experience as immersive as possible for you. So we invite you, dear Piknicers, to break out your construction helmets (...)

This mix of the week has some serious oldschool flavour - Veronica Vasicka delivers one hour of raw, synth-heavy "minimal wave" for XLR8R and Dekmantel.
Oh my, we’re already at our final Piknic of July – and the first wave. Never fear. What we have in store for your ears is as top shelf as ever. The operative style for the MOOG Audio stage is jackin’ and dirty. We get started at 2pm sharp with Mimi La Nuit’s Friday resident Eloïze, whose eclectic style draws upon everything from techno to nu-disco, with a detour into deep house. (...)
Another completely Piknic weekend with two events that succeeded in putting smiles on so many faces. Sunday's rain only augmented a day of intense heat. It was fun to see your little wet heads bouncing around to the newfound energy of fresh water! Our top times for this third weekend of July (...)
We’re telling you in advance, set aside your Saturday, August 8th. You’re booked. There’s a new event in town, and you’re going to want to be there. This is the kind of thing that looks like a serious must this summer. It's called VHS, and it takes place under the Van Horne Viaduct (hear the clock tower bells?) (...)
The STM has a treat in store for piknicers who come by bike, from now until the end of the season.

And while you’re at it, take the opportunity to get a free tune-up with their onsite mekano service, available from 2pm to 8pm. (...)
This Helix mix is perfectly wild and messy – just the thing for a party on a summer night.

Our third weekend in July touches down in club culture’s badlands, where the disco vortex plows into hazy desert-sun house vibes! The afternoon at the MOOG Audio stage kicks off at 2pm sharp with Montreal’s Sexlife, whose endless digging of Montreal’s disco past has led to some stellar productions on labels such as Turbo, New Kanada, and Obsession Records. (...)
Piknic #10 turned out to be hot, sticky and oh so fun! Let's say the buckets were working overtime. It was a Piknic that also marked the finale of the Week-ends du Monde at Parc Jean Drapeau. To commemorate everything, here’s our weekly Top Times, sweet and simple (...)
Agoria and Awakenings Festival is a match made in heaven.
