Family Piknik announce new date of September 12th

After several months of doubt and unknowing, it is time we admitted our helplessness in the face of the current health crisis. Following the speech of the Prime Minister in France on April 28th 2020 and the decision to extend the state of health emergency in France until July, Family Piknik will not be able to welcome you on July 25 & 26 at the Grammont site in Montpellier – it has now moved to September 12th.

This amazing cast included Charlotte de Witte, Mind Against b2b Recondite, ARTBAT, Worakls, Popof b2b Oxia joining La Fleur and Rodriguez JR. (live), who were both initially supposed to play on June 6th for the now postponed Boarding to Family Piknik event. The Family Piknik Music crew will also be largely involved behind the decks next to his head honchos Tom Pooks & Joy Kitikonti, with all the sparkling talents from the label itself.

The big stage that was already developed for the initial July festival will be installed in the heart of a new space, much larger in size, with a breathtaking view of the slopes. After months of frustration, this party has all it needs to be a mesmerizing event !

“We do hope this terrible health crisis will be behind us in September because we put all our energy in this new event. We’ve suffered a lot from this crisis, like many of our friends promoters, artists and festivals. All these months of forced inactivity have a serious impact on our structure and it threatens our whole project. Being able to host this alternative event on September 12nd is a kind of last chance opportunity to save our year and imagine a brighter future to celebrate properly our 10th birthday next summer ! We feel like people really need dancing and we’re thrilled to set up our dancefloor next to Montpellier airport’s slopes, which is a very special spot” (Tom Pooks, Family Piknik’s founder)
