Piknic Electronik plans season closure

The popular family-friendly music festival will host its closing event next week

PIKNIC ELECTRONIK’S FIRST season closing party is set to take place on May 9 at Dubai Sports City’s Rugby Park.

Running from 3pm to 11pm, the music festival has garnered many fans in recent months with its mix of stellar dance music and family-friendly vibes. To help cope with the rising temperatures, organisers will be adding water-based activities including slides and pools for adults and children to cool off with.

The entertainment line-up will be showcasing top-notch musicians including  headlining act Jake Fairley, also known as Farimont. The Toronto native has built up a loyal worldwide following throughout the course of his 14 year career. His biggest success came with the 2005 release Gazebo, a club monster that sold 20,000 vinyl copies, had steady national radio play in many countries and solidified Fairley as a key figure in the world of electronic music. Fans can also look forward to hearing a genuinely live set from the no-laptop DJ with the help of his three analogue synthesisers, two drum machines and a sampler.

Joining him on the decks will be Amsterdam producer Patrice Baumel. Best known for his hits including Roar, Mike Tyson and The Woods, Baumel is considered a master of Techno and is promising festival goers a truly energetic set.

Support acts include The Basement’s resident Miss P.M., JC Pinto and Cairo musician DJ Aly B.

Tickets are Dhs130 online at www.platinumlist.net and Dhs150 at the door (All children until the age of 12 enter for free).
