Motion Notion Festival is an exploration of electronic music, art, nature, and the infinite in the heart of Rocky Mountains near Golden BC, Canada. Motion Notion has always been something off the beaten path and a thing of discovery and amazement for all. Welcome to freedom and growth!
The three main arenas, all supplied with exhilarating visuals to further heighten the ecstatic vibes, are supplemented by four satellite arenas where Canada’s top-dog promoters showcase their choice selections. The Temple, a “melding of technology, art, nature and spirituality” is the main stage and is programmed to lure dancers in with dub and funk in the daytime before blasting them with the harder, psychedelic sounds come nightfall. The Cabana stays bass-oriented and vibrates with drum-and-bass, breaks, dubstep, glitch-hop, and house throughout the duration of the festival. Spectrum is focused on the electronic tip as well, but in a lush, beach setting. 2014’s four independent stages were curated, designed and managed by Montreal Bassix, Unity, EP Filthy, Broken Motion, and Flociety, all little powerhouses in their own right.
As well as setting up its own art installations, Motion Notion encourages independent artists and performers to bring their tools and create onsite which means Mo-No is packed full of eye-catching works and performances by painters, fire dancers, aerialists, and glass-blowers. All over the festival site there are talented souls ready to bewitch you in between dancing at the stages. Or, if you fancy getting involved en masse, there are public works in which to participate. Naturally, all that creating and partying requires fuel; this festival boasts a broad array of options for tasty, wholesome meals to suit any diet, including BBQ, poutine, teriyaki, tacos, curries, pizza, and more. Afterward, walk it all off by browsing the myriad market stalls set up onsite.
