Piknic Electronik does exactly what it says on the tin: the event combines a traditional afternoon picnic with the best in electronic music. And, with locations in Barcelona, Montréal, Melbourne, Dubai, Paris and Cannes, the Piknic brand is making its mark on the electronic music scene globally. The Barcelona edition of the festival is in its fourth year and hosts an eclectic programme of electronic music every Sunday throughout the summer. Set in the natural surroundings of Montjuïc’s Jardins de Joan Brossa, the picnic has a cheerful festival vibe. This year, the lineup features a variety of techno and house veterans and emerging artists, including Derrick May, Jesse Rose b2b Justin Martin, Detroit Swindle and local MOOG resident Gus Van Sound. Not only does Piknic Electronik boast good music, there is also a range of Barcelona’s best food and drink trucks, a vintage market and, as of 2015, a separate ‘Petit Piknic’ area for families offering activities, games and workshops for the little ones. Who ever said Sundays were boring?
