Back for its 7th edition, FAMILY PIKNIK FESTIVAL returns this August to Montpellier in the south of France. New this year, the festival will be held at a bigger venue on the exact location of the first legal Techno festival in the region (Borealis). This year’s headliners are the most looked after star residents in Ibiza: Marco Carola, Luciano, and Black Coffee. Each will be giving festival-goers an exclusive three hour DJ set under the summer sun.
launched in 2012, FAMILY PIKNIK FESTIVAL has brought the underground techno scene to the picturesque southern coast of France. With increasingly larger crowds each year, 2018 promises to be the biggest yet. New this year, FAMILY PIKNIK will feature two equivalent stages; one for house lovers and another for the techno fans.
