AUSTIN, Texas (CelebrityAccess) C3 is bringing Montreal’s Picnic Électronik EDM event to Austin, Texas, Oct. 27-28.
The original Picnic Électronik “was launched in Montreal in 2003 and has taken place in Barcelona, Lisbon, Melbourne, Santiago and Dubai. It is usually a summer-long series. This time, the family-friendly “eclectic mix of techno house and disco, showcasing 12 national and local artists on 2 stages” will run two days and aims to be the opposite of an all-night rave, organizers told Austin 360. Kids 10 and younger are free and there will be a Petite Piknic area with special children’s programming.
Last year’s flagship event ran from May 21 to Sept. 24.
“Austin is the perfect city for our first ever Piknic Électronik on American soil,” CEO and founder Pascal Lefebvre said. “With its world-renowned vibrant cultural scene and its reputation as a particularly festive and inviting city, it is a perfect fit for our brand and C3, a particularly great partner to build it with.”
Early bird tickets are $15 and available through Front Gate Tickets.
