Festival MEG Montréal x Piknic Électronik : a whole weekend of electronic music

For its 20th edition, the Festival MEG Montreal is joining Piknic Électronik and together they are hosting a whole weekend of electronic music!

The festivities begin on Friday evening, then the weekend continues with three Piknic instead of one and Saturday and Sunday, the party continues with the beautiful evenings at the Société des arts technologiques.

The Electromania pass is available for all the concerts of the weekend!

FRIDAY, AUGUST 31st

➤ 21:30 – 03:00 @ Société des arts technologiques

On Friday, August 31st, Montrealer Phil Fiction (CA) sets the ball rolling with a varied DJ set dominated by techno sounds. Next up, Arnaud Rebotini (FR), a staple of the French techno scene, will take the wheel, coaxing a live, all-analog set out of vintage synths. Then, the Japanese Galcid, her modular synths and her electrifying live performance will catch the SAT and DJ Kris Tin (CA) will wrap up the evening: the Montreal club and festival fixture performs sets that transcend the boundaries of electronic music.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st

14:00 – 21:30 @ Piknic Électronik

Quantic is the pseudonym of the British musician Will Holland. And who better than this great traveller, passionate about the sounds of the world, to take us dancing far away without leaving the cosy grass of Piknic? We won’t stop smiling!

21:30 – 03:00 @ Société des arts technologiques

On Saturday, September 1st, Fonkynson (CA), no stranger to MEG (he played the 2015 and 2016 editions) is back with his French Touch-inspired music and irresistible grooves. His mentor, Etienne de Crécy (FR), pioneer and figurehead of the 1990s French electronic music scene, will hit the SAT decks for a DJ set. Montrealer Heidy P. (CA), will cap off this marathon with a set combining house, disco and techno.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd

14:00 – 21:30 @ Piknic Électronik

It has become a ritual: on the Sunday of Labour Day weekend, Misstress Barbara  reigns on the Solotech stage, but not only! The famous master of afro-house music, Poirier, will shake the Moog Audio stage. 2 scenes, 2 legends.

21:30 – 03:00 @ Société des arts technologiques

On Sunday, September 2nd (the night before the holiday), the Electromania series will come to a close with a DJ set by The Avener (FR), and his brand of delicate and emotion-filled electro. Coming from Guadeloupe, I&G will bring their “Elektropikal touch” to open this evening and it is Montrealer Laura Scavo (CA) who will have the pleasure of closing this evening!

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd

14:00 – 21:30 @ Piknic Électronik

Charlotte de Witte is the techno artist of this summer. The specialized press as well as the biggest festivals fell under the spell of the talented Belgian who grumbles everything on her way. Do you like powerful and hypnotic sounds? Don’t miss it!
