Piknik Electronik Comes to Dubai This Month

16 Feb 2015

Global electronic music fest lands at Dubai Sports City on Sat 28 Feb

It’s Festival Season pretty much all year round in Dubai, but the latest alfresco party option to hit town sounds a bit special even by our standards. A longstanding event in Montreal, Piknik Electronik – a venture that takes electronic music out of neon-encrusted clubs and drags it out into the open air for one and all to enjoy – has spread to Barcelona and Melbourne. And now it’s our turn.

Featuring an array of international and local artists, with dance and art-related activities all over the place, Piknik Electronik is a mixture of cutting-edge fest and a good old-fashioned family-friendly lark in the park. The first event on the last day of Feb features Amir Sharara, Raxon, Matthew Charles, Maher Daniel and a live show by Parisian groovy techno-auteur Joachim Pastor. Then it becomes a monthly event in the Rugby Park zone of DSC until May.

INFO: Sat Feb 28: Doors 1pm-9pm; Tickets Dhs130 advance, 150 on the door, under 12s free, www.piknicelectronik.ae
