Thursday 31st October 2019: Piknic Électronik is proud to announce its full program for their sixth season in Melbourne, Australia. This upcoming summer, Piknic Électronik will host 5 events starting on Sunday 17th November until Sunday 22nd March 2020. The party will go from what was previously a weekly event to a jam packed once a month Sunday program, making it a great option for fans of the series.
The lineup for season 6 includes the return of the 10,000 person previously attended Carl & Eric’s Mobile Disco X Piknic Electronik collaboration… In November Carl Cox & Eric Powell bring their unique disco themed party to the bowl again, and tickets for this one are already on final release!
December’s Piknic will be bringing the soul with Detroit purveyor Moodymann. Moodymann’s sound is a hybrid form of techno/house dance music arrived at via innovative use of reworked riffs, samples and grooves. Co-headlining will be the “Michaelangelo” of dance music Mr. G – an old master both literally and figuratively. In your chest and in your soul is where you can feel Mr.G. He is a genuine connection to the old school that epitomises the sense of authenticity that an often-shallow modern scene so desperately craves. Joining them will be UR’s, John Jammin Collins.
January headliner is a Melbourne favourite Nastia, who is arguably one of the biggest current names on the international techno circuit. Her infectious aura and groove will make you want to dance-non-stop. “My aim is to see as many people as possible on the dancefloor and to dance with them, leading the mood with what unites us all -music. I am what I do.” Another favourite Melbourne gal, Laura King will be on support!
In February, Piknic Melbourne friends Thick as Thieves will once again co-present a key date of our season, this time featuring the popular Cologne duo Andhim – their sound, which they self describe as “Super House” has become its very own genre built from their soul and passion. Thick as Thieves have curated the lineup for this day which also includes Melbourne fave Boogs who will revisit the Piknic stage for his 4th year in a row, along with Brian Fantana and BINI.
For the finale party in March you can expect some big unannounced surprises. Stay tuned!!
