Mark your calendars friends, there’s a NEW Fall festival coming to the shores of Lady Bird Lake October 27 and 28! Piknic Électronik Austin promises a unique picnic in the park atmosphere at Auditorium Shores with plenty of electronic music, local food, and family-friendly activities.

Having originated in Montreal more than 15 years ago, Piknic Électronik is a favorite annual cultural event that has since expanded internationally to Melbourne and Santiago, with Austin being its first United States edition. We’re excited to have this festival added to Austin’s roster of cultural events!

The inaugural Piknic Électronik Austin will feature 6 national and local artists on 2 stages each day overlooking Lady Bird Lake, with a mix of techno, house and disco. So yes, get ready to dance! Additionally, you can count on bringing the kids to check out the Petit Piknic area where families are invited to have some joyful musical experiences with activities designed especially for parents and children. Plus, take note that children 10 and under are free to attend with a ticketed adult (2 kids per adult).
