PICNIC, SITGES FESITVAL AND MUSE CONCERT

This all changed in Montreal, Canada about 10 years ago when Piknic Electronik organized outdoor open air electronic music and picnic festival which catered for the whole family. They decided to use Barcelona as their first European venue last year and will do so again this year.
