The party takes place over the summer period from May to September if you live in the northern hemisphere and November to February if you’re in the southern hemisphere.

Nestled amongst the lush surroundings of Kings Domain, Piknic has seen the likes of Carl Cox & Eric Powell, George Fitzergald and Nina Kraviz take over the bowl.
