STRAIGHT FROM THE UNDERGROUND: MOTION NOTION DELIVERS A FULLY-LOADED PHASE II
Bountiful basslines and tantalizing drops will echo throughout the picturesque Rocky Mountains of Golden, BC as the 18th annual Motion Notion Festival takes over this summer, August 24th-28th, 2017. Having already unveiled an impressive Phase I lineup, the masterminds behind Motion Notion have dreamt up a visionary Phase II, showcasing the elite of rising talent from Western North America to compliment headliners Datsik, Avalon, Dirtyphonics, Koan Sound, The M Machine and Minnesota alongside a diverse mix of international legends and underground acts — totaling over 100!
For phase 2, Motion Notion is going deep with “Deep House’ favorites like Ben Annand. A resident DJ at Tropical and Moontribe in Los Angeles, Ben Annand can throw down on vinyl, CDJs, or both as he utilizes an incredibly aggressive and energetic mixing style with dreamy, atmospheric and deep beats. Recent years have cemented Freddy J as one of Canada’s “must see” dj’s and he’s sure to throw down a funky, whompy, groovy, crunky bass set. Having played Motion Notion many times over the years, Freddy J is a MoNo fan favorite. WMNSTUDIES has quickly risen to international recognition with his Nu-Disco, tropical storm of deep grooves and high energy DJ sets, leaving every person on the dance floor wanting more.
Winner of PLAY Motion Notion Alex Mei will make her festival debut, having beat out over 58 other worthy competitors in the recent contest held in conjunction with Do 604. Judge and Label Manager at Westwood Recordings, Jordan Hutchinson expands on his reasoning for choosing Mei as top winner, saying, “Super fresh style and quick transitions kept us grooving to the gritty, bass heavy sounds of Alex Mei from start to finish!” With so many amazing sets submitted, Motion Notion went one step further and made an offer to the 1st runner up: Vancouver legendary house duo Average Gypsy.
Entering its 18th season, under the direction of Motion Notion visionary Kevin Harper, the festival features 3 stunning festival-run stages including an all new beachfront stage, plus welcomes independant festival stage creators Turtle Island, Broken Motion and Flociety, who will be hosting their own interactive stages throughout the weekend. Encouraging attendees to become a part of the growing festival, Motion Notion invites both professional fire dancers, contortionists, hypnotists, magicians, aerialists, yogis and amateur flow artists alike to join the party.
Beyond the stellar musical additions, there are many features of the Motion Notion camping experience that set it apart from any other camping festival around. The Rocky Mountain location gives campers the chance to experience a location that is unparalleled in the world for clarity and depth. Camping alongside the Beaverfoot river offers plenty of late night stargazing and the chance to unplug and unwind. Getting lost amongst the pine trees will invigorate the spirit and the incredible nighttime sky will sooth the soul. Bordering the beautiful Yoho National Park, the mountainous backdrop becomes a work of art in any photo taken on site.
For the ultimate glamping experience attendees can add on a Luxury Tent Package. Amenities include a canvas tent in quiet camping, deluxe queen mattress and bedding for two, lighting and furniture included and set up inside the tent. Also included are: 6 shower passes, 2 Posh Potty passes, and a MoNo Swag pack.
