Piknic Électronik unveil 18 international legends for their 2018 season


Piknic Électronik has lifted the veil from its full program for their fourth Melbourne season, bringing nine events that showcase the largest international acts they’ve hosted yet. 

As well as the already announced pre-party launch featuring Tiga, Solardo and Marek Hemmann, the rest of the season follows a similar vein of top-tier local and global talent. 

The first week will feature Luke Hess and Molly, while the second features Rachmad and Deetron. Thick As Thieves take the reigns for the third week, bringing Boogs, Silversix, Jacob Malmo and Casey Lever to the stage. Capping of February comes Agents of Time performing a live set all the way from Italy alongside Jennifer Cardini and a special international guest that’s remaining a tightly kept secret. 

The rest of the season will see Sweeden’s DJ Seinfeld go toe to toe with Marcus Marr before Radio Slave, Tijana T and Paul Ritch work their magic. 

Capping it off comes Detroit don Derrick May, Mor Elian and an epic closing party with George FitzGerald, Yotto, Human Movement, Willaris. K, Toni Yotzi, Matt Radovich, Ben Cromack, Caine Sinclair, Anyo and MzRizk across two stages. 

Taking place in the lush surrounds of the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Piknic Electronik has become a global phenomenon in the time since it’s launched, taking place in cities including Barcelona, Lisbon, Santiago and Dubai. 

With an aim to make electronic music accessible for all punters, the event brings together food trucks, chill out zones and a heaving dancefloor all in one for an unforgettable summer party. As for what food is on offer, expect fare from a tantalising array of vendors including 196 Below, Bibelot, Biggie Smalls, Gelato Messina, Ghost Kitchen, Dr. Hofmann’s Woodfired Pizza, La Revolution, Meat Me Here and heaps more.
