Piknic Electronik was born in Montreal, Canada, ten years ago and takes place every year since then. It has come to Barcelona for the first time in 2013 with seven events in Jardins de Joan Brossa on the beautiful Montjuïc mountain. This year it expanded and you can enjoy it every Sunday.
Piknic Electronik Barcelona intents to take the experience of electronic music outside the walls of nightclubs, and out from under the tents of music festivals, into the open air.
Piknic`s organizers work with labels like Circus Company and Dirtybird BBQ, which means that this summer’s line-up includes a combination of local and international artists, from Richie Hawtin to Ben UFO. Other highlights are Carl Craig, dOP, Nôze, Audiofly, Joy Orbison, and rising star Nina Kraviz. It`s not easy to choose which event to visit, but if I had to pick one, I would go for Richie Hawtin that will play at the Piknic of the Year on September 22nd.
The territory of Piknic Electronik includes two interconnected areas: a family area with activities for kids and an @adult” area with a main stage, surrounded by bars, shops and a lounge zone. Feel free to bring you own food, but remember, that only non-alcoholic beverages in bottles up to 500 ml are allowed.
Piknic Electronik is more than just a picnic! It’s a world-standard electronic music event for everyone and way to bring family and friends together in a pleasant green setting that overlooks a magnificent city that is Barcelona. What you can expect is to spend your Sunday on the beautiful mountain of Montjuïc with great music, good food and a lot of activities for kids.
