Last Friday, John Summit performed at Montreal‘s very own Piknic Électronik. The energy was already pretty high since the whole province was in the midst of a three-day weekend as part of the national holiday celebrations. Obviously, John delivered an amazing set, curated with some of the hottest tunes in the techno and tech house worlds and a lot of his own records.
For those of you who don’t know, Piknic Électronik is an outdoor electronic music event that offers immersive and social experiences in a friendly environment, and is celebrating 20 years of operations this season. Located in Parc Jean-Drapeau, – the same site as îLESONIQ and OSHEAGA – Piknic attracts thousands of electronic music lovers every weekend all summer long. Sometimes, there are events like this one – John Summit – that are called OFFPIKNIC, which delivers special lineups.
The night started strong with MVNGO and Miss Dre, just before CID hopped on for an hour and a half of good vibes. The GRAMMY-winning producer was starting a big weekend in Canada, where he was playing the day after at Escapade Music Festival in Ottawa.
When John arrived, the energy went up in an instant. His charisma is undeniable, and everybody seemed to wait for his arrival to bring the party to another level. Starting his set with his collaboration with Guz and Stevie Appleton, ‘What A Life‘, the Chicago native continued his two-hour performance with a fluid blend of styles like he usually does, concluding the night with maybe the biggest song of 2023, ‘Where You Are‘ with Hayla.
